Alexey Malakhov - My Inspirations


     

Stanislaw Lem - a pure thinker. While he is mostly referred to as a writer, I do not think it is possible to classify him into any specifically defined group. His books are thorough and rigorous thought experiments about human and technological development. I admire most of his stuff, but absolute favorites would be Return from the Stars, Solaris, The Cyberiad, The Futurological Congress: From the Memoirs of Ijon Tichy, The Star Diaries.

     

Dr. Strangelove - a great mental exercise by Stanley Kubrick with an absolutely hilarious dark comedy twist.

The Mile High Illinois - a magnificent building reaching one mile into the sky. Proposed and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, when he was 88 years old.
