An exhibition-workout to celebrate the anniversary of VeloNotte tours - international architecture education startup on two wheels, created by historian Sergey Nikitin.
26 one-off rides in 14 cities featured architects Peter Eisenman, Richard Rogers, Sergey Tchoban, Peter Murray, David Adjaye, Richard Burdett as well as historians Ken Jackson, Peter Ackroyd, Vladimir Paperny and Philip Mansel as Velonotte experts.
The Exhibition in the State Schusev Museum of Architecture feature amateur videos and images selected by curators from the posts of the more than 100,000 participants of Velonotte tours all over the world. On display are original artifacts from the tours – such as a piece of the memorial plaque that Velonotte had unveiled in Moscow at Petrovka street 27/16 - where architect Konstantin Melnikov lived during his happiest years – in the 1920s (the plaque was destroyed by vandals soon after installation) as well as art objects created for the events by various artists.
The vast geography of Velonotte today includes never sleeping megacities - London, Rome, Moscow, Istanbul, St.Petersburg, but also cozy European destinations like Florence and Verona, alongside Siberian industrial giants Irkutsk & Krasnoyarsk.
As for the 2018 plans, they will return to London with Velonotte Musica on June 16; they are also invited to entertain guests at the AIA convention in NYC.
