ALMATY. KAZINFORM - World-class museum of modern art will be built in Almaty city, according to buro247.kz.

The Urban Council of Almaty city has approved the construction of the museum which will be an extension of the Botanical Garden.

Catalan architect Carlos Ferrater's name is linked to the project. Founder of the Office of Architecture in Barcelona (OAB), Ferrater is renowned for his mesmerizing works, including the three blocks of Barcelona's Olympic village, Benidorm's seafront promenade and Roca's new building in Barcelona.
