Since 2012, the city of Baku, capital of Azerbaijan, has a striking complex of high-rise buildings: the Baku Flame Towers. The construction consists of three towers which have the shape of a flame with a maximum height of 190 m. The flame shape designed by HOK Architects was inspired by the importance of fire for the town, as there is a high number of oil wells in the region.
