The Heydar Aliyev Center building’s design contrasts starkly to the rectilinear architecture that surrounds it in Baku, Azerbaijan. At the same time, this cultural center takes inspiration from historic Islamic designs found in calligraphy and geometric patterns to create something entirely new. The building takes an open form to invite the public into its space.
Officially titled the Republic of Azerbaijan this is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe. It is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west and Iran to the south. The exclave of Nakhchivan is bounded by Armenia to the north and east, Iran to the south and west, while having a short border with Turkey in the north west.
The Democratic Republic proclaimed its independence in 1918. The country was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1920 as a Soviet Socialist Republic. The modern Republic proclaimed its independence in August 1991, prior to the official dissolution of the USSR in December 1991.
