Strelka Bar in Moscow
Strelka is definitely an important hub for Moscow trendsetters, but it also seems like an enclave of a sort, an idealistic attempt to be everything that Moscow is (yet) not, pushing it a bit too far sometimes to the point of being unnatural and slightly pretentious.
The school itself accept students for post-doc 1-year programs (in English), so it may also be a good base to stay in Moscow for a longer time, as they have the bursaries and sponsored accommodation to offer in addition to the very interesting study programs.
They also organize interesting conferences. Among the recent ones is the Books in the Air Festival on the future of online information distribution systems (with an interesting design by Timur Akhmetov) and the Russian architecture pavilion in Venice Biennale.
Strelka is located in Krasny Oktyabr area, over the pedestrian bridge from Christ the Savior Church. There’s a cheap Fabrika Hostel nearby.
