Marco Hemmerling, architect, director of Studio for Spatial Design (Germany), the author of the Cityscope public art object, will perform a lecture at Strelka about the impact of mobile architecture and design structures on the urban routine. Hemmerling is convinced that presentation of the objects like Cityscope in the urban spaces allows residents to focus on the surrounding environment and, due to interactivity, to feel that you are a part of it. According to the reaction of passers-by to the urban kaleidoscope (more than 500 "cityselfies" of the reflections in the Cityscope were published on Instagram within a month), Marco Hemmerling's vision has a right to exist – more on which can be found at the lecture on the 29th of June.
Cityscope art object at the moment can be found at the Crimean embankment and will be at the VDNKH on the 30th of June – is presented as a part of the Lexus Hybrid Art project Episode 1.
