The capital of Kazakhstan is working toward a city expo in their countries capital. Astana Expo City 2017 has a very ambitious project of building 28 new modern projects. Over 100 firms bid on the project but Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) out of Chicago won. The focus of the project is to find new ways of achieving changes to energy use focused on alternative sources of power. Put simply the goal is to reduce energy use but focusing on decreased demand from designing things more efficiently. The sketches we have seen look a lot like Epcot. With the round center building. We are picturing a lot of guys wearing Hi Vis Gear working to achieve the 2017 deadline.
