About Me

CURRENT MISSION: check out Chengdu

ABOUT ME

I'm a critical urbanist, researcher and beginner activist. I try to be serious about world but not about myself.

Cities is what interests me the most: as the subject matter of my research, my workplace, and my home. Occasional trekking and cycling trips in the countryside remain pleasant exceptions from this urban life.

Music, Movies, and Books

Speaking of music*: I play the piano, and listen to a lot of records.

Some of my favourites haven't changed for while: Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Sergei Prokofiev, The Doors, J.S. Bach, Mr. Bungle, Milosc, Nick Cave, David Bowie, Lech Janerka, Bela Bartok, Dmitri Shostakovich, Andrzej Panufnik, Lambchop, Grażyna Bacewicz, Alarm Will Sound, Mulatu Astatke, Jaromir Nohavica, Morphine, Papa Dance, Tom Petty, Кино, Witold Lutoslawski, Steve Reich, Thomas Adés, Klaus Wunderlich, Pink Freud, Art of Noise, David Lang, Einstuerzende Neubauten, Xavier Montsalvatge.

Definitely NOT in this order.
