The gently curved office building is the gateway to the new Baku White City development, a vast industrial area refurbishment into a modern city part of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. The main feature of the new gateway building is the geometric complexity of its building envelope, which extends over the entire building and the freeform roof.
