17 May

The British pavilion at the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 will be decorated in Kazakh national traditions. Designer Asif Khan was inspired by the yurt to create the pavilion interior, "Khabar 24" TV channel reported.

"The yurt is an important reference point for energy efficiency and optimization. It is a comfortable, lightweight, flexible architectural form that identifies social life and a family atmosphere. This is a very important aspect which, from the architectural point of view, should not be forgotten in the future", - designer of the Great Britain pavilion Asif Khan said.

Composer Brian Eno wrote special music that will help to reveal the main theme and charge visitors with energy specially for the exhibition for the British pavilion. According to the creators of the exposition, EXPO 2017 will help to show the British technologies to whole world.

"We organize various events on the main theme of EXPO focused on various fields of energy. Our companies are already working in Kazakhstan in the energy sector: oil and gas, mining, and we will present new UK companies from the renewable energy sector who want to cooperate with Kazakhstan and want to know about the possibilities of the country", - said the Deputy National Commissioner of the pavilion of the United Kingdom, Sarah Everett.

It should be noted that the theme of the British pavilion is "We are Energy". The concept of the future exposition of Great Britain appeared earlier in the internet. The area of the pavilion will be 1100 square meters. Thus, it will become one of the largest at the exhibition. The pavilion will resemble a Kazakh yurt in shape. The main exhibit is graphene, a material that can change the methods of production and consumption of energy. The British delegation to the exhibition will be represented by a member of the royal family, Prince Richard. Earlier, the chief designer of the British pavilion Asif Khan, sharing his impressions of the host country EXPO 2017, called for promoting the culture of Kazakhstan throughout the world, and London hosted the exhibition road show. In addition, the British company UK Trade and Investment initiated an online survey. It is aimed at determining the opinion of Kazakhstan citizens about the UK on the eve of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017.

It should be noted that a number of projects of British innovators entered the top 100 start-ups to be be presented at the exhibition in Astana.
