The Russian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale Exhibits Technology

Showcasing epitomized technology and architecture, the Russian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale is a marvel.

QR codes are used to entirely cover the top floor of the Russian Pavilion. Visitors of the pavilion are encouraged to use tablets that decode the surface in order to unravel the contents of the exhibit. The focal theme of the exhibit it exploration of a new Russian city dedicated to information and studies in science.

The pavilion as a whole is a large architectural juxtaposition. This is achieved by contrasting the aforementioned top floor with a lower pavilion level that exhibits the secretive and gated science towns that were established during the Soviet Union. Contrasting open source with its antithesis is striking, and an interesting expression of modern day Russia.
