Nice! Looks a bit like a modern version of an art-deco skyscraper.

Wow!! Wasn't expecting to see anymore of these being built nowadays. I like it a lot.



I'm guessing Foster's pyramid is visible here in the upper right corner. What are those golden twin towers? Any info/images? (I'm not sure that I like those though)

The golden twin towers are called "the ministry's houses", you can give them a gander here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kazakhstan/1671513621/

Awesome design. It's good to see some art deco style buildings outside of the US in this day in age. Everyone seems to be building glassy buildings.

goddamn! robert stern should really stop designing buildings. this, in the 21st century, is nothing but decadent. and bad taste, as noted earlier.

what's interesting - foster's palace of peace, nazarbayev's palace, the trophy-looking tower, and the proposed foster-designed abu dhabi plaza are all on the same axis! whoa!

yes, must visit astana one day (:

bro, I think you're the only person that thinks this project is of bad taste!! I personally think it is a great revival of old art deco architecture and definitely refreshing and trully a classic, will never go out of style. A touch of New York.
