Space Is Near: Star Trek to Utopia

V–A–C Sreda online magazine continues its three-month series of podcasts devoted to space and its reflection in culture, art, and the utopian dreams of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

In this episode, we talk about the significance of space in architecture. What were the Soviet modernists inspired by? Where is astrophysical utopia to be found? Is it possible to build a flying city? And what is a reflector telescope, a satellite chair, and a one-eyed astronaut?

V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discussed these and other questions with the architect Maria Serova, the architecture photographer Yuri Palmin, and the ABCdesign studio employee Daria Zatsarnaya.
