About this title:

Synopsis: Amid the endless plains of Kazakhstan, an extraordinary architectural experiment has arisen: Astana. Formerly an outpost of the Tsarist Empire in the barren steppe, the location had developed into a typical Soviet provincial town. However, both internationally renowned and local architects are now designing spectacular and unique buildings in this dynamic city. Furthermore, Astana will host the Expo 2017 which will take place only twenty years after the city was built in the steppe alongside the old centre, based on a masterplan by Kisho Kurokawa. This exhibition is meant to finally promote the Kazakh capital to the premier league of global metropolises. The book documents eighty diverse buildings and projects, examining the contradictory nature at play within oriental traditions, western models and Soviet influences. Therefore, this publication represents a critical analysis of Central Eurasian architecture at the beginning of the 21st century.

About the Author: Philipp Meuser, born 1969, architect and publisher with studies in Berlin and Zürich. Construction projects in Kazakhstan. Research on mass housing in the Soviet Union.

Adil Dalbai, born 1985, studied Eastern European history in Berlin. Research on the architectural history of the Soviet Union with a focus on Kazakhstan.
