The architectural concept was the “Flower of the Steppe”. The petals of this monumental flower create an envelope which encloses an internal piazza housing shops, balconies, restaurants, exhibition halls, two cinemas and the 3,500 seat Auditorium entirely clad in wood inside and outside. Its shape is similar to a “Dombra” the typical Kazak instrument.
