Bjarke Ingels Group take mountain fetish to the next level with Zira Island Masterplan
Mimicking and blending in with a region’s topography is a trick that most architects are familiar with, but Danish firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) take the art to the highest level.



In October 2008 WAN caught up with the firm’s founding partner, Bjarke Ingles, following their presentation of residential development Mountain Dwellings at the World Architecture Festival Awards in Barcelona, which subsequently won in its category. But that has proven just a taster of BIG’s passion for man-made mountains as they present details of the Zira Island master plan in Baku, Azerbaijan - a 1million sq m range of seven cultural, residential and leisure peaks and Central Asia’s first carbon neutral master plan.



The imagery is breath-taking. From a distance the Island’s topography is an illuminated mountain range, but in reality the landscape is a living, functioning, inhabited space, seven towers creating a new mountain city. Importantly the scheme mimics the properties of natural mountains to create a fully sustainable eco-system.



“What we propose for Zira Zero Island is an architectural landscape based on the natural landscape of Azerbaijan,” says Ingels. “This new architecture not only recreates the iconic silhouettes of the seven peaks, but more importantly creates an autonomous ecosystem where the flow of air, water, heat and energy are channeled in almost natural ways. A mountain creates biotopes and eco-niches, it channels water and stores heat, it provides viewpoints and valleys, access and shelter. The Seven Peaks of Azerbaijan are not only metaphors, but actual living models of the mountainous ecosystems of Azerbaijan.”



Together with engineers Ramboll, BIG’s aim is to create a completely self-sufficient island and to do so by combining local building traditions with the latest technologies, helping to reinvent this young, post-soviet democracy as a key driver in sustainable living.

Good news everyone!

Visit Azerbaijan / Azərbaycan

For the time being it is placed inside the Caucasus section which is a new section added to the Central Asia (ie. Kazakhstan)

The future location and organisation of the Azeri forum depends on your approach and the number of forumers. If it goes well and the forum grows it could get a more prominent place. But at the moment it's not the right time to discuss those issues. The primary task for you now is to build the forum. There is a Projects and Construction section where you can now open a thread about every project, every tower and about smaller cities instead of the current state where it's all put into a single thread in international forum. There is also a Photography section. The main root section can be used for threads that do not belong to the previous two like economy threads. Please try to avoid political and other controversial topics.

Also the current English section titles within the Azeri forum can be renamed but it will require some of the Azeri forumers to translate them.

Really? People say that there is problems with Muslim and Israeli conflicts which draws out chaos in the cities and such... I have also heard that there is a lot of drunk people around because there is no set drinking age either. Is it cheap in Baku? I mean is Baku safer than say... Moscow?

Come on!!! Who are those people who tell it? You can buy alcohol everywhere except HALAL STORES, but there is no drunk people on the streets (though you can meet it very rarely) and Azerbaijanies are one of the most tolerant people to jews and we have jewish population who live in their motherland Azerbaijan. The things you tell is definitely not about Azerbaijan!
As for the prices, it is cheaper than the other European cities, but still more expensive than other Caucasian capitals.
