Zira Island masterplan by BIG architects

zira island

Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group have designed the masterplan for a carbon-neutral resort and residential development on Zira Island in the Caspian Sea.  Located within the bay of Azerbaijan’s capital city Baku, the 1,000,000 square metre masterplan will include seven residential developments, which the architect claim are based on the shapes of famous mountains in Azerbaijan.

The island will make use of solar heat panels, photovoltaic cells, waste water and rainwater collection, and an offshore wind farm.  According to BIG, the development  aims to be “entirely independent of external resources”.
