An Unusual Gateway to Science

Posted on Updated on

The top floor of the Russian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale opens to a vast amount of surfaces covered in QR codes. Visitors can decode these using their tablet computers, iPads or iPhones to explore the meaning behind them all; ideas for a new Russian city which is dedicated to science.

In contrast to the top floor of the building, visitors can peer through lenses to catch a glimpse of the secretive science towns which were established under the Soviet Union downstairs.

The architectural team behind this phenomena are: Pierre de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Kazuyo Sejima and the Venice Architecture Biennale’s director David Chipperfield.

Below are images of how the exhibition works.

I think this is a great way for the general public to engage themselves with the latest technology, and at the same time, be able to see the ideas behind a city which will inevitably serve a gracious purpose in the future.
