Palace of International Forums »Uzbekistan«

Tashkent / 2009

Palace of International Forums »Uzbekistan«, Tashkent. A project by Ippolito Fleitz Group – Identity Architects, Ornamentation.

The Palace of International Forums »Uzbekistan«stands on Amir Timur Square in the very centre of Tashkent. The country’s most important representative building is designed as a platform for hosting acts of state, congresses, conferences and other cultural highlights.

Our task was to give the interior a contemporary form, while incorporating elements from traditional Uzbek architecture. The result is a cosmopolitan, communicative interior clothed in exclusive materials. Planar ornamentation, organic movement, crystals, precious metals and a fascinating interplay of artificial and natural light all become a source of inspiration.
