Permanent exhibition project for the Maiden Tower in Baku
Dd has created a permanent exhibition for the Maiden Tower (Qiz Qalasi) in Baku. The Maiden Tower is the symbolic and historic centre of Baku. It is located in Icherisheher (Old Town) which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Tower has eight storeys and a rooftop platform with breath-taking panorama over the city.
The exhibition uses contemporary technologies without destroying the character of a historic monument. The aim of the new exhibition is to demonstrate the importance of the Maiden Tower for the culture of Azerbaijan and richness of the tower’s history. There are many interpretations of the meaning and history of the tower, and the new permanent exhibition presents them all, allowing visitors to judge for themselves which of these interpretations seem more persuasive.
