The Expo Site

The world’s newest urban park

The site for Baku Expo 2025 will be constructed east of the city. Two hundred hectares of undeveloped land, set between two growing suburbs, will be transformed into a major extension of the city with a fully integrated transport infrastructure. It will be the world’s newest urban park; an authentic and natural location that is both a beautiful and attractive addition to Baku 

A physical expression of the theme

Reflecting our theme, ‘Developing human capital, building a better future’, the site will create opportunities for individual thought, collective action and global interconnection.

From above, it will appear to be an eight-pointed star – the national emblem of Azerbaijan. While the intricate, geometric patterns of our world-renowned carpets provide design inspiration for the plazas and leisure spaces. At the centre, an iconic building – the Azerbaijan National Pavilion – will be the main point of reference as visitors navigate through pavilions and parkland. 

Baku Expo 2025 site plan

A lasting legacy

The Baku Expo 2025 site will be an illustration of the future function of urban spaces within the theme of ‘Developing human capital, building a better future’, and a permanent legacy for residents and visitors to enjoy.

As part of that legacy, the site can be easily converted to a natural park at the end of the Expo. And the Azerbaijan National Pavilion will be transformed to house a permanent exhibition, educating visitors about the country’s achievements in economic, social and humanitarian fields since regaining independence in 1991.
