international competition - Top 10

Saraiva + Associados project was one of the 10 finalists in the international competition for Expo 2017, in Astana. Conceptually built around a Green Axis, that effectively connects the Expo place to the city center, it uses Astana’s distinctive silhouette as a focal point. Together with the urban alignment with Astana’s central
and most emblematic buildings and the careful use of the Water element, the complex is immediately a part of the city. The project embraces the idea that “Life should be built on the conservation of energy”, therefore buildings and city planning were conceived based on world-class sustainable technologies. The new complex anticipates changing needs of the citizens and gives as much to the city in the future as to the people that will attend the event.
