As one of the leading universities in Kazakhstan in the field of architecture and construction education, the Kazakh Leading Academy of Architecture and Civil Engineering (KazGASA) always strives to expand its international relations, as well as to promote talents and create a platform for the exchange of modern, relevant ideas. To achieve this goal, on the initiative of KazGASA, since 2009, the International Festival of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Design Schools of Eurasia has been held annually. The festival has proved to be an ideal basis for demonstrating the best graduate works of students and undergraduates of our continent and an open, dynamic platform for exchanging experience and ideas for further development in this field, promoting their research projects and concluding cooperation agreements.
The International Festival was held in Turkey, Kyrgyzstan, Italy, Russia, Moldova, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan (based on KazGASA). During the years of the International Festival, more than 3,257 projects from 121 countries of Eurasia with the participation of 416 universities were presented at the review competition of graduate projects.
