UK Pavilion – Astana Expo 2017, Kazakhstan
The Astana EXPO 2017 was held in Astana within the Republic of Kazakhstan from June 10th - September 10th 2017. The core theme of the EXPO is 'Future Energy', and aims to highlight issues around reducing CO2 emissions, living energy-efficiency and energy for all. The UK Pavilion, designed by Asif Khan with music by Brian Eno is a distinctly British take on the theme with the mission statement of "We are Energy". At the heart of the UK Pavilion is a stunning 60 metre panorama depicting a living, universal landscape generated entirely by computer. It captures the relationship between the Sun, the Earth and its climate in incredible detail through virtual day and night. At a stunning 40 000 pixels wide it is largest project of its kind ever undertaken.
WNY was appointed by Her Majesty's Government of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as their Project Management Consultants (PMC) to lead and manage the delivery of the Pavilion.
