Russian Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia 2012

Posted by Arseny Vesnin on 27 09 2012 10:15 · in Design, Events, Russia

Our friend and partner Evgeny Kiselev is visiting Venice and of course poped in to the controversial Russian pavilion made solely from QR-codes and weak promises. The first floor featuring a quite odd and dominating citadel that has QR-codes. Everything works only with a special iPad available at the entrance telling the tales about new innovative projects. The ground floor featuring the “reveal” of some soviet strategic cities where visitor can read wikipedian information about the secret nuclear and army objects of Cold War period, hence my home town is not on the list, just because it is still top-secret :D
