GSM Project selected to design 'world class' visitor experience for Patna Science City
POSTED 13 Feb 2018 . BY Kim Megson
We’re very proud to work on the development of such a project and to help promote science and sustainable development through immersive exhibitions
– Yves Mayrand, GSM Project president and chief creative officer
Three firms have been commissioned to develop a “world-class” Science City attraction in central Patna, India.

Exhibition designer GSM Project, architect Flying Elephant Studio and project management firm Gleeds have been selected for the project by the government of Bihar following a call for tender.

The 30,000sq m (323,000sq ft) Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Science City, named after India’s former president, will promote “the past, the present and the future” of science through a series of galleries and educational attractions.

In a statement, the government said it will “encourage the participation of locals and Bihari diaspora in engaging activities to develop scientific temperament and to create awareness of Bihari pride, its science history and contributions in a global manner.”

GSM Project will design and supervise the overall visitor experience including the design and supervision of the 7,500sq m (80,000sq ft) permanent exhibition galleries. They will also develop interactive participative learning facilities, such as a demonstration kitchen, biochemistry laboratories and a maker-space, in addition to an outdoor gym and sports playground.

“Our experience in similar projects and our distinctive approach regarding content and visitor experience will allow us to bring a unique perspective to this project,” said Yves Mayrand, president and chief creative officer of GSM Project. “We’re very proud to work on the development of such a project and to help promote science and sustainable development through immersive exhibitions.”

The Science City is being built in central Patna, near the Moin-ul-Haq Stadium.

Elsewhere in the world, Science Cities or large-scale science hubs are currently being developed in Suzhou, China; Kuwait City, Kuwait; 6th of October City, Egypt; and Dubai.
