Completed in 2012, the award-winning complex comprising a conference hall, gallery and museum features Hadid’s signature elaborate curves and undulations.

“The surface of the Heydar Aliyev Centre’s external plaza rises and folds to define a sequence of public event spaces within; welcoming, embracing and directing visitors throughout the building. It’s an architectural landscape where concepts of seamless spatial flow are made real – creating a whole new kind of civic space of the city.” The architect said on her award-winning piece.
