NorthernLight completes design for Sochi's Sirius Art and Science Park
POSTED 05 Jul 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
Educating visitors with day and night activities, the attraction will also expose the public to the Sirius talent programme
Dutch design agency NorthernLight has completed the design phase for the redevelopment of Sochi’s Olympic Village, which is turning its former media centre from the 2014 Winter Olympics into a science and art park.

Connecting science and art, the unique addition is the “crossover of an art biennale and science gallery”, according to NorthernLight.

With 40,000sq m (430,500sq ft) of exhibition space, the Sirius Art and Science Park will develop as a hybrid science centre and museum. Educating visitors with day and night activities, the attraction will also expose the public to the Sirius talent programme, a scheme which teaches Russia’s brightest youngsters maths, science and innovation.

Divided into four themed zones, the development features interactive media and experiences using new technology, while also incorporating hands-on science centre exhibits. In addition to scientific exhibits, contemporary art works of both local and international artists will be on display, with piece relating to the thematic division of the different galleries.

The park will also feature a planetarium, food court and an outdoor area with a cinema and observatorium. Included among the exhibits will be a full-size replica Russian space shuttle, created by RSC Energia.

“The unique combination of art and science is sewn in together under a festival setting, effectively stimulating creativity and drawing inspiration from the greatest minds in Russia’s past and present,” said NorthernLight in a statement.

Work is being conducted in conjunction with a national science panel and will be completed in February 2018 – in time for next year’s Fifa World Cup – with a second phase of development starting after that.

The overall development of the Olympic Village aims to preserve the legacy of the Winter Games, with the redevelopment offering meaningful leisure activities, expanding knowledge about Russia and offering an opportunity for young people to grow their talents. The main aim of this scheme is to identify, develop and provide professional support for children demonstrating gifts in technical creativity, art, the natural sciences and sport.
