The opening was very exciting: pornographic pictures on the walls were in abundance, the musicians were wonderful, a cultural critic Sergey Samoilenko talked to vice-governor Andrei Filichev, as a modern artist Slava Mizin of the “Blue Noses” group launched fireworks from his own pants.

And this, my friends, is the primary sensation of the evening: Gary Oldman came to the opening of the exhibition in Novosibirsk!

Mr Oldman friendly talked to local residents and even made a commentary for TV. By the way, [Robin Williams](http://www.flickr.com/photos/nokato/2723917535/sizes/o/in/set-72157603610266957/) came to Novosibirsk to watch the total solar eclipse last year.

Architectural Festival “Green City” was held in the Altay Mountains (Russia) in early August. Participants built architectural objects from materials that can be found at the scene. According to organizers, this is one of the principles of eco-architecture. The aim of the festival was to create a model architecture that is able to blend with the environment.

Our colleague [Dmitry Kobsev](http://kobsev.livejournal.com/), who visited architectural festival, said metkere.com, that he was impressed by impractical objects, like The Temple of Wind or The City of Flowers. “This is a bare idea, a sort of concept, not a claim for housing”, – said Dmitry Kobsev.
