I'm doing This journey that follows the Ancient Commercial Silk Road throughout the Eurasian Corridor, on a bike.
From an Architect point of view that will document his experiences, landscapes, means, crossings, characters, habitats and spaces. In this adventure his look will research the constructions, lifestyle, disposition, adjust, use and misuse of materials, customs and traditions in each country and region. Also he will make a comparative to $nd the leading thread of influences throughout the route. How the Commercial route marked the architectural concepts? Was there a common language? And if it was, how was it modified?
The Route in bike will be documented on paper, video and photographs, in a constant dialog of information that will create a data base. Starting in Venice, Italy; going through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan to Xi’an in China. The paths of each country get together from those spots with higher signi$cance and historical importance, building the cartography that allows us to join the past and the present.
Departing from the Mexico City International Airport (Benito Juarez), to Venice International Airport (Marco Polo) where the companion bike will be set. Including all the necessary accessories we will begin to roll countries, states, towns and spaces until the goal be achieved.
