    Kazakhstan has unveiled a new architectural project for its capital
    Astana - a giant transparent tent that will contain an indoor city.

    </font>


    The 150m-high (500ft) dome, designed by UK architect Norman Foster, will be built in just over a year.
    </font>


    The tent is being made from special material that absorbs sunlight to create the effect of summer inside.
    </font>


    Astana lies in the very heart of Central Asian steppe. Temperatures there often drop to -30C in the winter.

    'Difficult project'
    </font>


    The final shape of the world's biggest tent was revealed in a 3D model by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

    Underneath, in an area larger than 10 football stadiums,
    will be a city with squares and cobbled streets, canals, shopping
    centres and golf courses. </font>


    The idea is to recreate summer, so that when the outside
    temperature is -30C, the residents of the Kazakh capital can play
    outdoor tennis, take boat rides or sip coffee on the pavement cafes.
    </font>


    Called Khan Shatyry, the project is designed by Lord Foster, who has recently built a giant glass pyramid in Astana.
    </font>


    "Nothing of the sort has been done before, and from the
    engineering point of view it's an extremely difficult project," says
    Fettah Tamince, the head of Turkey's development company Sembol that is
    building the tent. </font>


    Mr Tamince is nevertheless confident the company can complete the construction in just 12 months.
    </font>


    'Huge risk'
    </font>


    It is a hugely ambitious undertaking, but so is Astana itself.
