Nur Alem National Pavillion, Astana, Kazakhstan
In 2017 the capital of Kazakhstan hosted an EXPO exhibition, themed "Future Energy". Nur Alem National Pavillion is an after-exhibition heritage, now serving as a museum of future energy in Kazakhstan.
The museum is a 8-storey building. Each floor is dedicated to a different theme: "Solar power", "Wind power", "Space power", "Bioenergy", "Hydropower", "Kinetic energy", “National Pavilion”, and “Future Astana”. Energy sources are presented in an entertaining way. Visitors are advised to start exploring the museum from the top floor, as it will introduce them to upcoming projects that will be implemented in the capital of Kazakhstan.
In Nur Alem Museum the most advanced developments in the field of sustainable energy are displayed. These unique exhibits will not leave indifferent either a child or an adult.

It was interesting experience, since this place has unique design. Dubbed “the veil and the vault,” the museum’s design merges the two key components of the building: public exhibition space and collection storage. Rather than relegate the storage to secondary status, the “vault,” plays a key role in shaping the museum experience from entry to exit. Its heavy opaque mass is always in view, hovering midway in the building. Its carved underside shapes the lobby below, while its top surface is the floor plate of the exhibition space.
