Baku, Azerbaijan

The Superpowers of Baku's coastline

The aim of this comic is to tell and show the discoveries extracted from our research on Baku’s coastline (see New Baku), and present the proposal to which this will lead (see The Voyage of Geminin).

But… Why a comic? As Blank Space platform points out, “we recognize a split between architecture and the rest of the world by observing how architects only talk to each other, and we set out to change that. We take fun very seriously and strive to be audacious enough to ignite imaginations. Communication is omnipresent, and good communication helps great ideas change the world”. Basically, we believe that “architecture can be more interesting, more fun and more social”.

This story allows the reader to discover the singularities of the Azerbaijani landscape that make this territory truly unique. Along with Anar, the castaway of the coastline, the reader visits those extraordinary, strange, outgoing, authentic and absolutely sincere places that have remained hidden until now…
