What an odd looking tower! Very creative, but not sure how I feel about it.

The tallest building in the Caucasus has topped out



February 23, 2015

The new headquarters of the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic, SOCAR Tower, in the capital Baku has topped out and interior work is underway. Thornton Tomasetti provided structural design services through design development, as well as construction design peer review and construction administration consulting, to Heerim Architects & Planners for the project, which at 40 stories is the tallest building in Azerbaijan and all of the Caucasus. The 59,000-square-meter (635,070-square-foot) office tower has an aluminum and glass podium and two levels below grade. Its curving façade resembles a flame that comes to a point at the top and was inspired by Azerbaijan’s historic name, “The Land of Fire.” The tower has a dual lateral structural system consisting of special reinforced concrete shear walls and a special steel moment frame. Baku is a heavy seismic zone and has particularly strong winds. The complex geometric shape required sloping columns, mainly at the tower’s top, which when combined with the high seismic and wind loads provided numerous design challenges. A tuned mass damper at the top of the roof ensures a controlled movement of the tower under wind loads to meet criteria for human comfort.

Wow! Anyone know if these are completed yet? I heard they were to be done in 2015. Working on updates for CTBUH.

Thanks!

hoists facade horrible

Hi everyone! I'm new here
I have a question: is the tip of the tower finished?
Perhaps... For me that crane hoists facade seems too visible and ruins the beauty of the flames of the tower.


What do you think?
