There are some new old-styled architecture buildings too. For example here is the picture of recently constructed building of the Supreme Court

I agree, Tbilisi has nice projects and i like some of them very much, but it is not comparable to Baku neither in their number nor in its scale. Besides most of the nice projects in Tbilisi are in renderings (no construction yet). As for approved renderings Heerim's Moon and Crescent projects for Baku are enough to beat the whole construction sectoer of Tbilisi.

I have been to Tbilisi in summer 2008. Their projects are nice, but it is not comparable to Baku where more than 500 buildings are under construction and hundreds of rennovation works all over the city plus infrastructure projects: roads, bridges, pedestrians, tonnels etc.

I'm not a fan of those designs... but I guess any construction is better than nothing.

I guess you are right where the economy is concerened. But Baku has a lot of beautiful historic buildings (oil boom mansions, impressive Lenin/early Stalin era buildings etc.) some of which have been replaced with ugly poorly constructed modern buildings and painted horrible colours. Projects such as Port Baku and Flame Towers are good because they are replacing the uglier Soviet architecture or built on land that was previously wasteland while incorporating tasteful modern design and engineering.

The construction scene of Azerbaijan is corruption-ridden and the mafia often use construction as money laundering projects (or certainly did when I lived there). I hope this is changing and we see some more innovative projects from Baku.

I am pleased the old prison in Bailov will be made into a museum. I think Azerbaijan needs to do more perhaps to exhibit its more recent history. A transport museum would be a good attraction for tourists as well- many are fascinated by the old Lada's, Zil trucks and buses that used to be a common sight there.

Before the crisis Baku had about 550 under construction highrises, but now it has decreased to around 450. As for the designs, i don't majority of them although some are very interesting and unique projects like Port Baku, Flame Towers or Hilton Baku
