A breathtaking journey into tomorrow
Gateway to tomorrow
ARDECO and Insglueck
Kazakhstan arrives at Expo 2020 with dramatic swooping architecture and a warm “Salamatsyz ba!” – or “Hello!” At the Kazakhstan Pavilion, you’ll undertake a journey through grassy steppes and technological achievements as you learn about the sense of shared destiny the Kazakhs call Mangilik El – or the “Eternal Nation”. Inside are countless wonders to explore, from a visually impressive pre-show featuring floating digital strands of DNA, to immersive exhibits on Kazakhstan’s mineral wealth. If you’re wondering why the pavilion uses the spelling “Qazaqstan”, it’s because the nation plans to officially change its entire alphabet in 2025!

The Kazakhstan Pavilion consists of a detached rectangular shell with archways that reveal a golden core building beneath. Inspired by the latticework of traditional Kazakh circular tents, or yurts, the pavilion’s white outer façade is perforated with algorithmically arranged holes that allow the building to breathe and, after dark, create a starry light display.
