10 Project of the Future In Baku

Project of the Future In Baku

Posted on April 10, 2012 by team


Zaha Hadid is probably the most famous female architect of our time. Here we present photos of her project - the Concert Hall of the Cultural Centre named after Geidar Aliev in Baku, Azerbaijan. The absolute harmony of smooth lines creates an illusion of eternity, the inside concert hall is fully (!) made of natural wood.

This huge construction has an area 110 thousand m2 will be the main part in the new district of Baku. The Cultural Center itself will contain a museum, a library, a conference-hall, and a hall for festive and cultural occasions. There will be a lot of transparent, glass walls in the building, so artificial light will not be dominant.

      Just don’t leave don’t venture more than a 4 blocks away from the boulevard. Anything past that and you might see what life is like in a country where the average person lives off of less than 400 Manat per month and has little to no economic of political freedom.

      Azerbaijan is getting better and better at putting on a great facade that masks the real problems in the country. Instead of an opera house Azerbaijan needs a solid infrastructure, i.e. clean water, well built roads, uncorrupt politicians/police, and basic democratic rights.

      Providing necessities is far more important/wonderful than providing luxuries for the few.
