The Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan resembles a cresting wave—there are no straight lines on the structure’s curved, white surface. Constructed by British architect Zaha Hadid in 2012, the center’s unique shape is a symbol of modernity in the city of Baku, reflecting the present and the future in progress. Heydar Aliyev stands primarily as a venue for art exhibitions, and its stunning landscape is also popular backdrop for visiting and local Instagrammers alike.
