Hey­dar Aliyev Cen­ter

Asian Geographic - - Celebratin­g Outstandin­g Brands In Asia -

De­signed by the late Iraqi-bri­tish ar­chi­tect Dame Zaha Ha­did, this struc­ture doesn’t just look beau­ti­ful; it flows beau­ti­fully. Hous­ing an au­di­to­rium, a gallery hall and a mu­seum, the build­ing is an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised ar­chi­tec­tural work that has won sev­eral awards, mak­ing Ha­did – once dubbed “queen of the curve” – the first woman to win the top prize in the De­sign Mu­seum’s De­sign of the Year Award 2014. The cen­tre holds ex­hi­bi­tions cel­e­brat­ing Azer­bai­jan and fea­tur­ing in­ter­na­tional artists, and in­te­grates both el­e­ments seam­lessly, much like its ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign.
