Kazakhstan’s remarkable Palace of Peace and Reconciliation

Kazakhstan’s new capital city of Astana is home to a huge, futuristic pyramid structure – the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation – created to house the triennial ‘congress of world and traditional religions’. The stunning project was designed by Foster and Partners and ate up 8.74 billion kazakh tenge (as in £35 million or US$53 million). It’s the price of perfection, I suppose.
