Francisco Colom, Emma Gabaldà and Vicente Plaza are architects by the University of Alicante (Spain). Their interest in Baku arises within the framework of a collaboration grant between the University of Alicante and the Azerbaijan University of Architecture and Construction. This collaboration allows Francisco to move to the capital of Azerbaijan in September 2013 and Emma and Vicente to have plans to move in the coming months.
Francisco, Emma and Vicente are working on the New Baku project, a research on Baku’s coastline which proposes a different way of understanding the development of the city. All the information about the project can be found in their website.
