The theme for the upcoming Expo in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, is “Future Energy.”

It’s a prime opportunity for the former Soviet republic to make an impression on an international stage.

But the Expo, set to open June 10, has faced several daunting hurdles, chief among them corruption, economic woes, and just four years to complete a $3 billion, 18 million-sqft city by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill (AS+GG).

Remarkably—with just three months until opening day—construction on the Expo grounds is nearing completion. And, says AS+GG founding partner Gordon Gill, the contractors “have fought really hard for the integrity of our design and have maintained the quality of the architecture.”

Split into two phases, the 174 ha project will feature exhibition and cultural pavilions (118,620 sm); a residential development (686,000 sm); service areas including shopping, socio-cultural, educational and civic facilities; parks (72,000 sm); and parking, according to the architects.

The “Future Energy” theme is aimed at finding ways to achieve qualitative changes in the energy sector, primarily for the development of alternative sources of energy and new ways of transportation. Finding sustainable energy supplies is a critical and growing global concern. The solution to these concerns ensures economic growth and improved social standards while reducing the burden on the environment.
