Alyat Beacon

Baku, Azerbaijan

With its sculptural form, the Administration Building attempts to become an iconic and functional centerpiece within the Alyat International Port, welcoming the arriving vessels into the new commercial port and Azerbaijan. The visual and physical connection to the working quays is critical to the efficiency of the building’s design. A control tower atop the building enables 360 degree monitoring of the international port, while circulation paths provide efficient access to the operation points for the port’s personnel on the ground.
