Design of Heydar Aliyev Center

Zaha Hadid Architects was designated as the design architect of the Haydar Aliyev Center after the competition held in 2007 and designed as the priority building for the cultural programs of the nation by the famous Iraqi and British architect Zaha Hadid. The Cultural Center was built on an area of ​​57,000 square meters. One of the most critical but challenging elements of the project was the development of the outer shell of the building in terms of architecture. We wanted to develop such a seamless surface that it looks homogeneous, combines a wide range of different functions, construction logic and technical systems, and integrates with the exterior of the building. Advanced computer techniques have allowed continuous control and communication of this complexity among numerous project workers.
