Apart from printed books, Strelka Press offers a new platform for long-form writing in the shape of short e-books that give readers instant access at affordable prices.
Strelka Press is the publishing arm of Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design. Based in London and Moscow, Strelka Press publishes books in English and Russian.
Strelka Institute is a non-profit organization aimed at generating knowledge, producing new ideas and making them come true. Its lecture halls and studios provide free tuition for international young specialists with backgrounds in architecture, design, social sciences, etc. Its courtyard hosts open lectures, conferences and film screenings. Its bar provides both a place for the social networking of creative people from around the globe and a source of Strelka’s financial backing: what the bar earns goes to support the institute.
Strelka is an educational centre that is open to the world and ready to share. What happens here spills out into social exchange.
The output of the institute is multidimensional. It includes graduates and their projects. It involves a growing network of creativity. But, most importantly, it helps shape the reality of tomorrow.
