Chess Academy in Baku, Azerbaijan by Coop Himmelb(l)au

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Article source: Coop Himmelb(l)au

The capital of Azerbaijan, Baku, is situated directly on the Caspian Sea and the site for the Chess Academy is located at the sea promenade of the urban coast line of the city. The sculptural design for the Chess Academy has the potential to orientate the building towards the City and towards the Caspian Sea at the same time and create a visible icon for the Chess Community of Azerbaijan.
