Biennial international architecture exhibitions in Venice – Russian Pavilion
The 13th International Architecture Exhibition “Biennale” has began in Venice
I think I’ll write a rage of topics dedicated to the Biennale, which is around the corner from my house.
The Russian Pavilion is the first topic I want to present. Divided into two floors, you can find a dome reminiscent of the Pantheon covered with QR codes upstairs. Every code can be read with a smartphone to find out about the new city of science that’s being built and all the new ideas in it.Downstairs you can peek several images of the old Soviet city of science through some lens.
There’s an evident difference between the two different concepts of the city of science: the one is open, collaborative and transparent while the past one was closed, secret and impenetrable.
