Blazing flames of Baku
Gray in black and white
Iridescent by night
Opaline at sunrise
Radiant at sunset
Shimmering from everywhere in the city
The Flame Towers consist of three kaleidoscopic skyscraper buildings (south, east and west) in Baku, Azerbaijan. Construction began in 2007 with completion in 2012.
Even if the designer is a little bit (just a little bit?) annoying, in the Discovery Science documentary called Build It Bigger: Azerbaijan's Amazing Transformation (go to 25:48), the Flame Towers are still under construction. Vertigo guaranteed.
