Causing a stir of interest at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale this year is Russia’s interactive and futuristic Pavilion, unveiling plans for a new city of “science and technology” near to the capital, Moscow, in 2017.

Opened only on Wednesday, visitors have been flocking far and wide to marvel at the installation, which was curated by Sergei Tchoban and Sergey Kuznetsov of SPEECH Tchoban & Kuznetsov.

Covered entirely with QR codes, visitors can access information, view 3D renderings and explore the proposed site using smartphones and tablets to hover over the technological marvel.

When completed, the proposed city of Skolkovo will comprise a university, homes and nearly 500 companies working within the fields of biomedical and nuclear research, energy, IT, and space technology.  These companies currently work with each other as a network from different locations around the world – Skolkovo will provide a real-time base for this community of technologists.
