'i-city,' in the upstairs level, consists of three rooms with a grid of QR codes wrapping the walls, floors and ceilings. Shelves of tablet PC's greet visitors which convert them into scientists and explorers, left free to roam the halls using their tool to take pictures of the codes and discover information about the Skolkovo project, a new city which promotes architectural and technological innovations in Russian urbanism. The tiled skin of the interior creates a texture, filling the spaces with varying levels of light in a surreal futuristic environment. The potential of information is present, but must be found by the individual and pieced together, where the big picture is not immediately obvious but rather uncovered.
