A technology park is a new type of multifunctional public-industrial complex, which in its development passes the stages from one building to the structure of regional scale, in which, along with fundamental scientific, industrial and commercial functions are gathered the developed public functions and those of social and public services. Considering the already implemented technology parks projects and offered ones on architectural competitions, we can conclude that the architects actively use the innovative design methods and offer unconventional compositional solutions of technopolis architecture, which in their turn, find approval and support of the jury, and later, find approval of those, who are directly working and living in them. The article describes an innovative approach to technology park architecture formation, applicable to its tripartite structure.
While a wide range of technologies can be applied in the context of sustainable development, it can be more efficiently to narrow it in application to scientific and technology parks. Some existing technology parks in the developed countries have turned to information and communication technologies (ICT-sector) and have chosen it as a main specialty. This can help to focus on the pressing problems and targeted solutions - “clean” energy technologies, environmental protection, environmentally clean production technologies, technologies of the water use efficiency improvement, agriculture and public health.
Thus, a technology park, as an innovative urban element could, in its turn, become a part of the future eco-city, which is being developed by the modern architects and scientists.
