On March 12, 2012, the results of the competition for residential development in the “Technopark” area of Skolkovo were announced. This was the first of four planned competitions for residential development of the innovation center. Strelka Institute was a consultant to the competition that was curated by the French architectural agency Valode & Pistre and Mohsen Mostafavi, Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The selection committee chose 10 winners from among the more than 300 Russian and foreign teams that took part in the competition.

An official ceremony to announce the competition’s results will take place in connection with the 3rd Moscow Architectural Biennale and the 17th International Exhibit of Architecture and Design. Following this ceremony, representatives of the winning teams, each of which will supervise a separate region of Skolkovo, will present their projects in Strelka Institute’s courtyard.
