QR curiosity: Pavilion reveals Russia’s past and future

02 : 09 : 2012 Urban : QR Codes : Venice

Venice – For the 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice, designer Sergei Tchoban of architecture firm SPEECH has designed a monolithic pavilion made out of QR codes.

When members of the public enter the pavilion, they are handed a tablet device that they can use to scan the numerous QR codes that line the walls of the space. Once scanned, the codes reveal information on the Skolkovo project, a high-tech future city situated on the outskirts of Moscow.

In a separate space in the pavilion, a series of peep holes reveal information about Russia’s secret cities created during the Cold War.

Intriguing architectural spaces such as this will be examined in our forthcoming Future City Networking Evening on 13 September. To book a place, or to find out more information, contact Alena by 10 September.
