Category: Office Building, Tourist Attraction
The Heydar Aliyev Center is a 619,000-square-foot building complex in Baku, Azerbaijan designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid and noted for its distinctive architecture and flowing, curved style that eschews sharp angles. The center is named after Heydar Aliyev, the leader of Soviet-era Azerbaijan from 1969 to 1982, and president of Azerbaijan from October 1993 to October 2003. The Center houses a conference hall, a gallery hall, offices, restaurants and a museum.
Over 8 tons of PENETRON and PENECRETE MORTARwere used to enhance impermeability of the basement and the underground parking of the Center.
