Дорогие друзья!
В ночь с 22 на 23 июня Москультпрог проводит Velonotte Albertina, или вторую Лондонская архитектурно-историческую Велоночь! Сотни участников из Британии, России и других стран  собираются на прогулку по самым красивым площадям и садам Викторианского Лондона. На рассвете нас ждет пикник, чай и музыка!

Велоночь приурочена к 150-летнему юбилею Лондонского метрополитена и - шире - всей эпохе великих городских преобразований крон-принца Альберта. Среди ключевых эпизодов – экологическая архитектура Хрустального дворца, зарождение современного музейного дела, поиски идентичности в английской кирпичной архитектуре второй половины XIX века, художественная и литературная жизнь столицы Британской империи, которая и сегодня поражает свой актуальностью (Дикенс, Оливер Твист, прерафаэлиты - все оттуда). По традиции, особая страница посвящена Русскому Лондону – на этот раз, Герцену и Бакунину, а также визитам русских императоров Николая I и Александра II.

London is about to welcome its first VELONOTTE!
(please scroll down to fill a registration form and read our FAQ)

On the night of 23rd of June 2012 London will host an exploration of cultural and architectural history on bicycles: an urban expedition called LONDON VELONOTTE. London Festival of Architecture has invited Velonotte to produce the event on the very first night of the Festival.
This unprecedented architectural event has been conceived by prof. Sergey Nikitin, young Moscow-based architectural historian. Prominent architects and cultural historians, including Peter Ackroyd, Ricky Burdett, John Marriott, David Adjaye, Richard Rogers and Peter Murray have been invited to narrate the moonlit bike tour which will take participants through the Whitechapel, Spitalfields, Tower of Hamlets, Poplar, Canary Wharf and Newham while discussing architecture, urban policy and cultural life, culminating in the newly built Olympic Park.

The 5-hour journey will wrap up with a music picnic at the dawn with Trinity Laban college strings orchestra performing a special set "Sunrise over a Quiet City", directed by Nic Pendlebury.  

Registration form is below.

Velonotte has been met with critical acclaim and public enthusiasm in Rome (with Jean-Louis Cohen, Piero-Ostilio Rossi and Vittorio Vidotto as speakers), New York (with Peter Eisenman, Ken Jackson and Alexander Neratoff), Terni and St. Petersburg (with Maria Makogonova, Sergey Tchoban and Boris Kirikov). The most recent event of this kind in Moscow in 2011 has attracted more than 5,000 people (watch a short documentary here).

Velonotte is being produced by the non-profit Bureau de Velonotte/MosKultProg.
We are truly grateful for the support of the Russian Embassy in London, Canary Wharf Group PLC & Mottra Caviar House.
