The Serbian Ministry of Science and Technological Development launches a competition for the design of a Centre for the Promotion of Science in one of the districts of New Belgrade. This open international, anonymous, single stage competition is organised in cooperation with the Association of Serbian Architects, the Association of Belgrade Architects and International Union of Architects.
The subject of the competition is the design of the Centre for Promotion of Science - a complex incorporating all the main functions for exhibitions, conferences and a planetarium. Located on a site of 11, 66 ha, it will be constructed on an area of 20 915 m2. Competitors are required also to make proposals for the planning of the entire site as a science park, that will become part of the Belgrade High tech Centre, university, scientific and commercial district.
According to the Minister of Science and Technological Development, Mr. Bozidar Djelic, the Science Centre is an ambitious and high priority in Serbia in the next few years. It is to be a landmark of Belgrade - a place that lives day and night, that pulses and attracts.
