Futuristic Pyramid

Since 2006, kazakhstan's new capital city of astana, itself an enormous hub of construction since it inherited the title in 1997, has been home to one of the world's most impressive and visually futuristic pyramids, known as the palace of peace and reconciliation. It was designed by British super-architects foster + partners, cost 8.74 billion kazakh tenge and was built to accommodate the triennial 'congress of world and traditional religions'. If there was ever a positive to be found for the existence of the idiocy we know and love as religion, this building could be it, as after an impressively rapid 2 years of design and construction, the end product is a masterpiece.
