An unprecedented architectural public education event is going to take place in New York. After Rome, Moscow, Terni, and St. Petersburg, VELONIGHT, the unique project by professor Sergey Nikitin, founding director of Moskultprog, is inviting to explore the postwar cultural and architectural history of New York City on bicycles in the night between October 1 and 2. — VELONIGHT
Architects and cultural historians, including Rem Koolhaas, Guy Nordenson, Jean-Louis Cohen, Peter Eisenman, Ken Jackson, Tony Fletcher and others, will narrate the moonlight bike tour that will take participants from the Guggenheim Museum to Downtown Manhattan, riding past icons (and failures) of New York's architecture, urban policy and social/cultural life, culminating with a picnic at dawn on Pier 1 of the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
