Concept Description

Port Baku Towers provides 70,000 square meters of Grade A office space and features retail and restaurants facilities. The office space is set in two landmark towers. LED based video controlled dynamic lighting scheme has been developed for the 135 meter tall all glass skyscraper outlining its distinct form. Soft wash of warm light will express the stone clad low rise tower. The video content design by LDC will respond to highdays in Azeri calendar. The façade lighting is linked to an 18 meter tall digital light art piece also by Lighting Design Collective located within the entrance lobby to the tower. Seemingly solid and opaque wall surface will appear alive animating the environment.
