Heydar Aliyev-International-Airport-Autoban

Autoban & the Heydar Aliyev International Airport, Baku

In summer 2014, Autoban completed the design for the interiors of the new international passenger terminal in Baku, Azerbaijan. To launch the project, Tomorrow arranged for 16 design journalists from around the world to come to Baku for a three day press trip. In preparation for the trip, we undertook a research visit to Baku to enable us to pull together an engaging itinerary that helped put Autoban’s new design into the wider context of the changing face of the city. The trip, which brought journalists from the UK, France, Spain, United States and the UAE, included an architectural tour of the terminal, Zaha Hadid’s Heydar Aliyev Centre and visits to Baku’s historic Old City. Publications represented included Surface, AD Russia, PORT, AMC, Identity, NEO2, Modern Weekly China and FRAME.
