sergei_arssenev: Russian-British high-tech architecture

Strolling around London, tourists admire the avant-garde skyscraper-“cucumber” 30 St Mary Axe ("The Gherkin") and the overhead cover of the BritishMuseum (BritishMuseum - "Queen Elizabeth II Great Court"). But only few of them know that this delight is aroused by the creative synergy of the two outstanding architects: the Great Russian engineer and architect Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov and the master of the high-tech architecture Lord Norman Foster. The famous British architect constantly uses the bearing lattice structures (lattice shells) invented by Shukhov in his masterpieces.

mezze: Universities push for higher fees


Many universities in England and Wales want a sharp increase in tuition fees, a survey by BBC News has revealed.

Two thirds of vice-chancellors, speaking anonymously, said they needed to raise fees, suggesting levels of between £4,000 and £20,000 per year.

More than half of university heads want students to pay at least £5,000 per year or for there to be no upper limit.

marysiak: Colour From The Dark UK Premier on Saturday

The screening is on Saturday (24th) Jan at 11am at The Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Place, London. The director and cast members Michael Segal, myself, Eleanor James and Gerry Shanahan will be there along with other invited industry guests. You can get more info on the film at http://www.marysia.com/zcard/colour.html

If you would like to come you can buy a ticket now at http://www.marysia.com/zcard/colour.html or you can call the Prince Charles Box Office on 0870 8112559 or you can buy your ticket on the day or at the box office in advance.

We will go into the cinema at 11am so try to arrive a little early so we can get everything finished and the cinema cleared on time (we have to be out by 1pm).

After the showing we will be going on to a pub, which one will be announced at the performance.

If you have a blog or journal that has a lot of London based friends please do pass this info on, I'd like to fill the cinema as it'll be a while before this is available to the general public.

Hope to see you on Saturday!
