It is undeniable why the Heydar Aliyev Center was awarded the first ever 2014 Design of the Year by London's Design Museum. Utterly breathtaking with its sloping lines, all-white exterior and overall innovative form, it is a work of art that would astound people for decades to come. Sure to stand the test of time, the Heydar Aliyev Center has a minimal futuristic look that could be likened to a piece of draped cloth.

Designed by none-other-than Zaha Hadid, the Heydar Aliyev Center was praised for its its "intoxicatingly beautiful design" as well as having the "clear vision of a singular genius," by the jury. Based in Baku, Azerbaijan, it's comprised of a museum, auditorium and exhibition space.
