Sir Norman Foster is a British architect who invented the high-tech style, winner of many awards, and a person who made a significant contribution to the image of modern Nur-Sultan(Astana), and thus to the lifestyle of the capital’s residents. Each of his projects is sure to break the record for scale, innovation, versatility, height or budget.
Our tour will start from Independence Square, where one of Norman Foster’s creations “the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation” (“Pyramid”) is located – a place where leaders of world and traditional religions gather. The unique feature of the Palace is the inclined elevators, which move diagonally at an angle of 60 degrees. In addition to the Palace, such elevators can be found in the Eiffel tower in Paris and in the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas.
In the continuation of the tour, we will visit the “Nazarbayev center” – the Library of the First President. The library building resembles a huge eye that looks up into the sky. The library not only has a huge collection of books, but is also a Museum and serves as a venue for various exhibitions and conferences. Here you can get acquainted with the main stages of formation and development of independent Kazakhstan through the prism of the life and work of the First President of Kazakhstan.
On the way to Khan Shatyr, we will see the building of a multifunctional complex under construction -“Abu Dhabi Plaza”, which will be the tallest in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, which recently opened its doors and combines shopping and entertainment venues, a hotel, business offices and much more.
Well, at the end of the tour, we will not only see, but also visit “Khan Shatyr” – a building in the form of a huge transparent tent, which is considered the largest in the World.
