Polish architects in Kazakhstan
The design of the national monument by the KAMJZ studio
POLAND/KAZAKHSTAN Maciej Zawadzki has been invited by the mayor of Astana and the Kazakh Ministry of Foreign Affairs to take part in a competition for the design of a symbolic national building.
This is to be built on a 36 ha artificial island in the centre of the capital city. Maciej Zawadzki, a partner and the creative director of the KAMJZ studio, was invited to enter the competition as the only Polish architect out of ten architects – from Australia, Italy, South Korea, Portugal, the USA, Turkey, France (2) and Switzerland.

According to the organisers, the project, which will function as a national memorial next to the city’s Expo centre, is intended to be a new symbol of the country. The main judge of the competition is to be President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

“The project was preceded by a field inspection at -40⁰ C,” Maciej Zawadzki told us. The architects who have prepared the project include Łukasz Wenclewski, Michał Polak, Daniele Govi, Jason O’Connor, Wei Lesley Yang, Geoffrey Pascal, Sylvana Repsi and Sebastiano Cutrupi.
