Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, Nur-Sultan

4.1
The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, also translated as the Pyramid of Peace and Accord, is a 77 metre high in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, that serves as an event venue. The structure was built by Sembol Construction at a cost of 8.74 billion Kazakh tenge and opened in late 2006.DesignThe pyramid portion of the building is 62m high which sits on a 15m high earth covered block. All of this construction is above ground level. Though the landscaping of the park rises up to cover the lower levels, these are not in fact basements.It was designed by the British architects Foster and Partners (lead design). Turkish architectural firm Tabanlıoğlu Architects undertook construction information packages for the Foster design and engineers Buro Happold undertook lead structural and services design. The Foster team was led by architects Nigel Dancey, Peter Ridley and Lee Hallman. Sembol Construction undertook a Design and Build contract, and were ultimately responsible for the final details and finishes, some of which varied considerably from the Foster and Tabanlıoğlu (Tabanlioglu) intent. Auditorium and performance equipment design was by Anne Minors Performance Consultants and acoustics by Sound Space Design.The structure is made up of five "stories" of triangles, each triangle being 12 m on a side. The lower portions, three "stories" of triangles, are clad in pale granite. The upper two rows of triangles, 4 triangles per side, form a glazed apex; instead of stone cladding the triangles of the apex feature a design of stained glass by Brian Clarke, incorporating doves.

  • A futuristic monument that is in the resolutely modern style of the city. The tour is done with a guide and lasts about 40 minutes. For the visit in English I was alone which was very simpa. Apart from the modernity of the building and perhaps the conference room on the top floor, there is little attraction.

  • Been there for an exhibition and noticed how spacious it is but not much to see. Though, truly liked what I had seen.
  • This entire city was designed & built according to Illuminati guidelines. From the direction in which certain structures face (East)to the shapes of others. All with occult meanings & symbolism.
  • Amazing landmark! So astonishing compared to anything I've seen before! Great for photos but haven't been inside as it was under construction unfortunately.
  • Great architecture and great museum guid
  • Beautiful park and building! Definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in Astana!
