Architectural Form-:

A variety of shapes is chosen for different blocks gives each block a separate identity but does not complement the Kolkata Science City. The domical form of the space Odyssey and the descending spiral of the Dynamotion hall resemble a massive ziggurat. The convention center is in the form of two split spheroids depicting a titled saucer and a huge truncated spherical cone rising one behind the other. The science park is square in nature.
