Baku Sea Promenade

 

 

In 2003 KSM along with architect S, Gertner were asked to prepare a master plan for the rehabilitation of the waterfront of the city of Baku Azerbaijan. The plan was developed for a phased rehabilitation of the waterfront creating a public park with promenade, plazas, entertainment

and culture. In addition to the open spaces a series of cultural buildings are placed like a string of pearls along the seashore. Amongst these buildings, an Aquarium and Sea World center, a national theatre, a children's theatre, art galleries and coffee –tea houses, a pier lighthouse restaurant and observation tower, and a food court- Galleria.  The central plaza has a large fountain which spews fire and water- tribute to the land of fire.
