CERBA is informing about the following partner event:
Astana: Architecture, Myth & Destiny
w/ Dr. Frank Albo
WHEN: November 11, 2017
WHERE: University of Toronto
PHOENIX RISING After a century of ghastly labor camps, forced collectivization, secret nuclear tests, and near environmental destruction, Kazakhstan has emerged to become one of the most strategically important countries in the world. Find out how Astana’s glass and steel masterpieces, monuments, and public institutions, provide a blueprint of three basic solutions for the necessary betterment of the world.
LANDSCAPE Kazakhstan is a vast expanse of untouched steppes, grand canyons, arid deserts, majestic mountain ranges, and breathtaking landscapes as lush as Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth and as windswept as the Badlands of South Dakota. Though this country gave the world apples, first domesticated horses, and inspired the legend of King Arthur, Kazakhstan remains a veritable terra incognita, a derisive toponym for Borat, and a mecca of Internet conspiracy theories.
FRANK ALBO, PHD Dr. Frank Albo is an architectural historian and a certified expert on communicating new streams of knowledge in relation to the built environment and the cultures of the past. He holds graduate degrees in ancient Near Eastern languages, Western esotericism, and the history of art, receiving his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2012.
