Baku Airport Toll Gate

Steel that glitters gold

The Toll Gate across the access road to Heydar Airport in Baku was likewise built in the capital of Azerbaijan. It uses the same language of design as that applied to the airport roof. An elliptical arch 28 metres high and 72 metres wide spans a multi-carriageway access road to the airport. 800 panels made of golden expanded metal are suspended from cables; the symbol decorating the centre of the arch is the Azeri star. The toll station emits a golden glow in the dark.
