New housing typologies in Baku

Bachelor Thesis: Bauhaus University Weimar, 2009

My Bachelor thesis, completed in 2009 with honours is a typological research and assesses new forms of dwellings evolving in the city of Baku during the city's second oil boom.
The new business elite, the winners of the recent oil boom are trend setters not only in society but in in construction, too. Their new housing types could be considered as a tendency and therefore play a crucial role in the urban development of Baku. The new typologies drastically change the existing relationship of public and semi-private space and possibly speed up the change of societal patterns.
