London’s Atomik Architecture has unveiled its first completed project in Kazakhstan
The scheme – a pavilion and hub for Almaty’s Art Point Festival – consists of a series of interlocking boxes providing exhibition space, shade, and an events area.
The pavilion was created as a collaboration between the British Council, ARTBAT FEST, and Atomik Architecture and will provide a space for master classes, lectures, meetings, film exhibitions, and children’s programmes.
The practice opened an office in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest metropolis, last month. The office, which is being led by Asel Yeszhanova, is working on projects both in Kazakhstan and in the UK.
According to the practice, the move is part of its ‘ambitions to discover new approaches to design and develop a portfolio’ in the area.
