MINISTRY OF TAXES IN AZERBAIJAN

The new 170-meter-tall building of the Ministry of Taxes is composed of five twisting cubes of different sizes standing on podiums. The building boasts a unique geometric design due to its twisting forms and progressive building services. The sophisticated architecture and modern building services make the Ministry of Taxes a landmark project in Azerbaijan.

Renaissance provided its design services and conducted ground survey and test piling works.

Rotating Geometric Forms

We are designing a new, 31-story mixed-use office tower for the Ministry of Taxation and Finances in Baku, Azerbaijan. The tower comprises five cube forms of varying size resting on a podium base that houses a 400-seat auditorium, a boardroom, a cafeteria, and a 60-foot tall winter-garden space. Each volume is separated by green space–promoting access to the outdoors all the way up the tower. Optimizing solar orientation and views, the geometric forms gradually taper and rotate a total of 40 degrees from the base to the top. The 490,000-square-foot tower includes offices, a formal restaurant, and private one- and two bedroom suites for visiting dignitaries. The tower is topped with a spectacular rooftop garden, affording dramatic views of the old city of Baku.

I think the construction is just started. Who is in charge for architectural specs?
I would like to meet and discuss for the glass application details of this project?
Could you help me?

honestly I don't get the rational behind of this project. Instead of reforming the ministry, reducing its staff and delegating/outsourcing the functional capacity to the private audit firms, they are getting a new fancy building. How much does this project cost to taxpayers and the budget? It is probably worth investing to any other area rather than giving budget funds to government agencies to build such useless projects. It doesn't even fall within the parameters of the investment - since there is no hope or expectancy that it will generate income in the future. It pisses me off...

Indeed, do people/companies really pay so much taxes in Azerbaijan to warrant such extravagance? Foolish.
