The process of democracy and efficient nation building, formation of civil society, conducting profound political and economic reforms in Azerbaijan, as well as the country’s rapid development and recognition throughout the world is inseparably linked with Heydar Aliyev, the national leader of Azerbaijan.

The modern nation building process based on the strong foundation of deeply rooted national values, unification of the nation around a commonly-shared idea of the Azerbaijanihood ideology constitutes the fundamentals of Heydar Aliyev’s policy. Despite the fact that Heydar Aliyev’s ideological foundations aiming at the support and promotion of the Azerbaijani language, history, culture, national and spiritual values are strongly upheld in today’s Azerbaijan, there was a necessity for an overall management of activities in this realm. This was the reason for the foundation of the Heydar Aliyev Center pursuant to Decree No.1886 issued by the President of Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev on December 29, 2006.

Many of those who happened to see the design of the Heydar Aliyev Center for the first time had hard times to believe that such a project might ever come true.In fact,even in theory ,the erection of the building of a such extraordinary design looked far from being anyhow realistic.
Construction of the Center’s facility was launched in 2007 and completed on May 10, 2012, to celebrate the National Leader’s 89th anniversary. Recognized as one of the world’s masterpieces in architecture, the Heydar Aliyev Center has immediately grown into a signature architectural landmark of modern Baku. Zaha Hadid, the author of the building’s design, is a worldwide recognized architect and the winner of the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize.

Not a single straight line was used in the Center’s design.
The overall shape of the building resembles a wave-like ascension from the ground towards the sky followed by gradual descent down to the earth. This is not only a tribute to post-modern architecture, but also a portrayal of an eternal cycle.
