To prevent moisture build-up or condensation in the winter, three transparent levels of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene material or EFTE act to route warm air. In summer, fritting on the exterior aluminum foil part provides solar covering. Inside, low-level airplanes direct cool air across the space, while starting air vents at the top generate stack-effect air flow. The visibility and range of the camping outdoor tents is unique in the sky line like a shining example, changing shades at night and loading in sun rays during the day.
Inaugurated truly by Kazakh Chief executive Nursultan Nazarbayev, the Khan Shatyr was described as “the latest mirror project” of Kazakhstan's progressively autocratic president by The Guardian.
Nazarbayev shifted Kazakhstan's investment to the separated north town from Almaty in 1998 and relabeled it Astana, which means, basically, "capital". On the 10th wedding of the move, Nazarbayev finalized a decree announcing 6 September – which happens to be his wedding – Astana Day. The name “Khan Shatyr” itself approximately converts as 'the camping outdoor tents of the khan, or king”.
Nazarbayev has decided Kazakhstan with an iron fists since it obtained freedom amongst the failure of the Communist Partnership in 1991. His current presidential term ends this year, but under legal changes accepted by parliament in 2007, he is permitted to serve as president consistently.
