Earlier entries document the "Afro-Tech and the Future of (Re-)Invention" research trip to Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria (10-25 April 2014, Anne Bergner and Inke Arns), and the INDUSTRIAL on Tour trip to five industrial cities in Poland (27 Sep - 9 Oct 2011, Thibaut de Ruyter, Inke Arns et al.)

Novosibirsk: Some impressions from Akademgorodok

 EN Stained windows depicting science
EN A building block

EN A rotunda

EN "Akademiya" - I guess a (former?) cinema (?)
EN A festive lighting system
EN Red pyramids and yellow circles - seen from a different perspective this was reminiscent of El Lissitsky's "Beat the Whites with the Red Triangle!"
