Almaty: Financial District, The Foster Towers



The Almaty Financial District Fosters Towers will be the tallest building in Kazakhstan when completed. The project is scheduled to open in 2009 and will comprise of two 48 storey office towers, residential apartments and a retail element. The three combined components of the scheme will be served by a shared underground car park offering approximately 1,600 parking spaces, distributed over three underground levels.

Few architecture firms are fortunate enough to have the exceptionally high brand awareness and international reputation enjoyed by Norman Fosters and Partners, whose masterplan will change the skyline of the city with this landmark project. It will form Phase 4 of the incredibly ambitious Almaty Financial District project.

Situated to the north of the city’s major access route, Al-Farabi Avenue, the Towers site will be positioned directly opposite the earlier phases of the Almaty Financial District and adjacent to another site also being designed by Fosters and Partners – Almaty Financial District Phase 5 - primarily to offer residential apartments but also with some office and retail space.

ALMATY AIRPORT CITY
Project will include a new international airport terminal, shopping center, expo and business center Marriott Hotel.
Construction End: 2 phases, 1st: 2007-2009, 2nd: TBA

Location
Almaty, Kazakhstan
To the east of Almaty International Airport Terminal 1.

Team:
Developer: N/A
Architect: adPI ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS


A futuristic project has been started by ADPi at the international airport of Almaty, Kazakhstan.
image hosted on flickr

A combination of glass and wood, the uniqueness of ADPi's project, is to propose a building in the shape of three yurts, traditional tents used by nomadic people in central Asia. This layout will facilitate future expansion of the terminal capacities, by adding other "yurts" to the existing ones. The new terminal will absorb the important increase in traffic recorded by the airport (23% growth in 2006), for a traffic slightly over 2 million passengers. The works should end in less than two years.

With 32,000 m² the building can handle, at the beginning, 1,500 passengers per hour and 2 million passengers per year. ADPi will carry out studies to eventually reach a final capacity of 6 million passengers per year.

I didn't really like some of Foster's latest projects around the world, but this time the firm has come up with something interesting.

I like all the buildings (the shorter ones look very good as well), the only thing I don't like is that the glass atrium between the towers goes up a bit too high and it looks like it is too simple compared to the details of the rest of the project.

good point, it's almost 6 floors. but if it was lower I think it would not feet into diagonal lines and would look very simple.
