ARCHITECTURA|POLITICA|ARTI|COSI

The Television Center in Almaty (Alma-Ata), Kazakhstan, 1996. The building was built during the Soviet Era and unfortunately lacks information about its architect and construction date. It was inspired by the historical cities of Central Asia, whose regional capital was Almaty. The design recalls the Persian muqarnas (complicated geometric niches and domes clad in tiles or mirror) of the mosques and madrasas of Registan, Bukhara, and Khiva. The style was adapted to the cityscape by using metal cladding and glass.
