We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Kazakhstan Architecture. We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Kazakhstan. The focus is on contemporary Kazakhstan buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

AS+GG’s design for EXPO-2017 will embrace the Future Energy concept by becoming the first Third Industrial Revolution city, where energy consumed by the Expo community will be provided from renewable sources. Buildings will become generators of power and their energy will be stored using innovative technologies while being distributed by a smart grid. The Expo community will provide infrastructure to encourage and support the use of vehicles that use renewable fuels.
