Project Brief

The Khan Shatyry Entertainment Centre in Astana will become a dramatic civic focal point for the capital of Kazakhstan. The soaring structure, at the northern end of the new city axis, rises from a 200m elliptical base to form the highest peak on the skyline of Astana.


Project Description

Khan Shatyry (Royal Marquee) is a giant transparent tent currently under construction in Astana, capital city of Kazakhstan. The architectural project was unveiled by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev on 9 December 2006.

The 150m-high (500ft) tent has a 200m elliptical base covering 100,000 square meters. Underneath the tent, an area larger than 10 football stadiums, will be an urban-scale internal park, shopping and entertainment venue with squares and cobbled streets, a boating river, shopping centre, minigolf and indoor beach resort. It is being made from ETFE suspended on a network of cables strung from a central spire. The transparent material allows sunlight through which, in conjunction with air heating and cooling systems maintain an internal temperature between 15-30°C in the main space and 19-24°C in the retail units, while outside the temperature varies between -35 to +35°C across the year.

This will be the second project designed by UK architect Norman Foster (of Foster and Partners, collaborating architects are Linea, Gultekin and UMO), who has recently built a giant glass pyramid in Astana. The construction of the tent-city, expected to take a year(probably a bit more), will be carried out by the Turkish company Sembol.

Giant tent to be built in Astana
By Natalia Antelava
BBC News, Astana



The completion of the dome is expected in 12 months
Kazakhstan has unveiled a new architectural project for its capital Astana - a giant transparent tent that will contain an indoor city.

The 150m-high (500ft) dome, designed by UK architect Norman Foster, will be built in just over a year.

The tent is being made from special material that absorbs sunlight to create the effect of summer inside.

Astana lies in the very heart of the Central Asian steppe. Temperatures there often drop to -30C in the winter. (Read on...)

It looks like a gaint musquitonet.
I must say I'm not really impressed with this design of Foster.
It seems kind of stupid to build a structure like that only to house some stores, a minigolf and a pool.

Since this will be the best project (highest proposed towers / value approx 1 billion Euro ) for Bucharest it deserves its own thread. Please post comments pictures, info, renders etc

Haha, the renders show like huge crowds going to to shopping-tent that stands in (what seems like) the middle of nowhere.
I wonder if they built in a system to trap all of the shoppers inside where they will be forced to shop till the end of their days.

The tent will be built within the New City limits and will be clearly visible in the city's beautiful skyline.

For me it's impressive building, especially trees inside. I write about Foster's project for Astana.
