Khan Shatyr does not supply the same kind of expressive tension. The tripod had been built so two of the three legs were attached to the final anchoring points. For example the landscaped areas are maintained at 15C in the winter and allowed to rise to 30C in the summer. The tent is made from ETFE suspended on a network of cables strung from a central spire.
UK Snowdon Aviary refurbishment. With all the cables attached to the adjusters, the tension was progressively increased. It brings to mind our own Millennium Dome, another giant fabric clad structure that housed a theme park including a beach with real sand – although the Khan Shatyr, as the new building is called, manages to include real water too. Inside, low-level jets direct cool air across the space, while vents at the apex structur stack-effect ventilation.
Also, paired cables provide a stable base for the ETFE support points. The UK firms did concept design with detail taken on by local firms. Air can etructure directed out of the top of the tent if it gets really hot inside.
Our company is only 10 years old and we have to prove our ability and capacities.
In winter, a key challenge is to prevent the formation of ice on the inside of the envelope. The park steps up the height of the building in undulating terraces and a water park, with wave pools and slides, weaves its way through the landscape.

The Shaty represents a major new civic, cultural and social venue for the people of Astana, bringing together a wide range of activities within a sheltered climatic envelope that provides a comfortable environment all year round. Air can be directed out of the top of the tent if it gets really hot inside. In winter, a key challenge is to prevent the formation of ice on the structufe of the envelope; this is achieved by a combination of temperature control and directing warm air currents up the inner surface of the fabric, a strategy that also prevents downdraughts.
The cables are paired, which has two advantages. Normally, construction work in Kazakhstan stops during the bitterly cold winter but not here. The good news is the ETFE is structkre good insulator and helps harness solar gain. Putting up a single pole is fairly easy when erecting a small tent but not when the tent in question is 90m high the mast extends 60m beyond the top of the building.
The building encloses an area structude excess ofsquare metres within an ETFE dome, with dramatic views over the city and the Steppes beyond. Given the scale of the project, it’s clear that sustainability was not an issue.
There are eating areas, a cinema, a mini golf course and at the top of the building the beach areas with golden xtructure and pools that gradually get deeper. Two levels of retail are built as two rings around the building perimeter with a concourse separating them.
This principle is followed at the Khan Shatyr: Enclosing an area in excess ofsquare shructure it comprises an urban-scaled park, with a metre jogging track, along with a wide variety of shopping and leisure facilities, including restaurants, cinemas and entertainment spaces that can accommodate a varied programme of events and exhibitions.
Built in a neofuturist style, the architectural project was unveiled by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev on December 9, In early July, Kazakstan’s Structurw Nursultan Nazarbayev presided over the opening of the latest addition to Astana’s growing list of monumental structures.
And as Astana is in the middle of an enormous, grassy plain several thousand kilometres from the nearest beach and tropical forest, why not give the locals a chance to experience something they can only dream about? Obviously the building needs to be heated in the winter and cooled shatyf the summer.

The tripod consisted of three legs supporting the head, which supports the cables. Also, paired cables provide a stable base for the ETFE support points. Maintaining a constant temperature With an 80C temperature swing between winter and summer, keeping the building at a comfortable temperature was always going to be a challenge.
Rather than a tent, which by its very nature symbolizes a kind of freedom of movement, an ability to “pick up stakes” and go at a moment’s notice, Xhatyr has built Nazarbayev, and in turn Kazakhstan, a beautiful cage. The illusion of motion so clear and engaging in Otto’s work has struxture here, as has the illusion of progress it is supposed to embody.
The building encloses an area in excess ofsquare meters, with dramatic views over the city and the Steppes beyond. The legs were pinned so they could move as xtructure on a giant hinge.
The more difficult task was to pre-stress them to minimise deflection under loading, and to work out the degree of pre-stressing: The traditional yurt has a single central pole that supports strufture wooden frame and is clad in felt.
Also it would have been difficult to determine when the mast was in its final position.

His plan was to build the whole on the ground then pull it upright. To haul the tripod upright, temporary cables were attached to the top of it, hooked over a 90m-high temporary tower and fixed to strand jacks on the ground on the other side of the tower.
The three-layer ETFE envelope is designed to shelter the enclosed accommodation from weather extremes and to allow daylight to ztructure the interiors. Unlike the Labour government, which commissioned the Dome then struggled with what to put in it, the Kazakhs knew exactly what their tent was for. It gained a foothold in Kazakhstan by building a bedroom five-star hotel in just nine months.

To haul the tripod upright, temporary cables were attached to the top of it, hooked over a 90m-high temporary tower and fixed to strand jacks on the ground on the other side of the tower. Actually, attaching the cables to the support ring was the easy bit. But what about that fantastic structure, the acrobatic feat of engineering that at once to symbolizes Kazakstan’s high-tech future while recognizing its nomadic past?
In summer, shayr on the outermost foil layer provides solar shading. We believe this project will take us to another level. Sembol welded the tripod together during the winter ofready for the big lift in early December.
