The curved Baku White City Gateway office complex marks the urban gateway to the Baku White City area, a completely newly built, ultra-modern district on the site of old industrial facilities. The main feature of the building is the complex geometry of the building envelope, which also includes the roof. Werner Sobek was responsible for the facade engineering in the project.
