A Contemporary Museum for a Contemporary City

February 28, 2014

In February, James Alexander and Lucie Branczik traveled to Kazakhstan’s former capital, Almaty, to lead a visioning workshop on a new destination for the city.

With the departure of the State Museum of Kazakhstan to Astana this summer, the City Authority has seized the opportunity to re-imagine and remodel the 17,500sqm building and grounds in order to house its city museum. New life will be breathed into the site, its exhibitions and activity programmes to create a social and cultural hub for locals and tourists alike.

Event is thrilled to have contributed to this exciting project and is looking forward to continuing work with Gala Koretskya and the Almaty History Museum team.
