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.[1] 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[1]), 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

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6165267.stm

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.

'Difficult project'

The final shape of the world's biggest tent was revealed in a 3D model by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Astana could have its own beach all year round

Underneath, in an area larger than 10 football stadiums, will be a city with squares and cobbled streets, canals, shopping centres and golf courses.

The idea is to recreate summer, so that when the outside temperature is -30C, the residents of the Kazakh capital can play outdoor tennis, take boat rides or sip coffee on the pavement cafes.

Called Khan Shatyry, the project is designed by Lord Foster, who has recently built a giant glass pyramid in Astana.

"Nothing of the sort has been done before, and from the engineering point of view it's an extremely difficult project," says Fettah Tamince, the head of Turkey's development company Sembol that is building the tent.

Mr Tamince is nevertheless confident the company can complete the construction in just 12 months.

'Huge risk'

It is a hugely ambitious undertaking, but so is Astana itself.

It was just over 10 years ago that President Nazarbayev decided to move the capital from Almaty to the very heart of Kazakhstan.

Since then the government says it has spent $15bn (£7.7bn) on construction, although some believe the figure is actually much higher.

For this oil rich state, which is an increasingly important global energy player, cash is not a problem.

Still, Mr Nazarbayev recently told the BBC that moving the capital was the riskiest step he had ever taken, and that Astana was one of his biggest achievements.

"It was a huge risk, and I took it intuitively," Mr Nazarbayev said.

"I put everything at stake, including my career and my name. I knew if I had failed it would be a fatal failure, but the success would also be the real success."

At the time, the president added, no-one seemed to believe that he would be able to create a real city in the steppe.

But the Astana skyline still looks more surreal than real - with its marble palaces, shining skyscrapers, metal structures and abstract statues, all surrounded by vast, snow covered emptiness.

Soon, rising above it all, will be the illuminated glass dome of the Khan Shatyry - an appropriate addition, it seems, to Astana's oil-money fuelled architectural extravaganza.

Первый раз вижу рендеры с двумя домами по соседству.
Раньше их не было.

Интересно, откуда они взялись и что там предполагается?

Смотрел по ТВ визит Назарбаева в Астанагенплан, и чуть не офигел от увиденного. По обе стороны Хан шатыры планируется Два одинаковых шатра, только два раза больше и два раза выше Хан шатыры. Все в рамках INDOOR CITY. Никто ничего не знает?

У меня до сих пор не было времени шастать по другим веткам особенно.
А сейчас временное затишье и вот что я тут обнаружил.

Выкладываю для наглядности картинку!



Братья румыны строят в Бухаресте аналогичный проект... :eek:hno:
Как говорится без комментариев.

Есть какие нить уточнения? Известия?
Про INDOOR CITY Батыгай вроде стало понятно после рендеров - они вовсе не похожи на Хан Шатыры.

Ты знаешь в Астанагенплане все так запутано. Раньше хоть их сайт помогал в чем то разобраться... Насколько я знаю, то, что я выкладывал по Батыгаю-отдельно, а комплекс из шатров - отдельно. Но все они связаны. Просто дело в том. что одни строят одну часть, другие - другую. Вот и получается - разрозненная информация. Также путает постоянно новые генпланы Астаны (то город будет круглым. то квадратным). Судя по моему источнику в РГП "Астанагенплан", там такое твориться, ПАПА не горюй..:lol:

Румынский проект уже давно не новость. Их вариант шатера стал известен ещё в далёком 2004-м, и когда объявили наш Фостеровский вариант, на их форуме прошла серьёзная волна негодования. Что вполне понятно, проекты практически идентичны, только румынский на порядок меньше и у него другая база. По-моему, наш вариант выигрывает, особенно если учесть как незаметно, плавно его основание сливается с головной частью. :cheers:

Точно замечено.
Спасибо за информацию... если тперь наши построят ХШ быстрее румынов - то вообще, честь им и хвала. Хотя, если честно...грустно, у нас в Астане большинство проектов - переделки чужих, начиная с Транспорт Хаус, заканчивая ХШ. Надеюсь, нико на Байтерек не претендует? =)
