The Azerbaijan Tower is a proposed supertall skyscraper to be constructed on the Khazar Islands, 25 km (16 mi) south of Baku, Azerbaijan. Construction on the Azerbaijan Tower is set to begin in 2015 and will be completed around 2019. The Khazar Islands are scheduled to be finished between 2020 and 2025. Now, how long can the Azerbaijan Tower last without people?
1 Day after People: Baku blacks out as the glowing lights of Azerbaijan are never to be seen again.
1 Year after People: A pipe nearby the tower ruptures causing little damage.
2 Years after People: Palm trees and canopies dominate the 40 to 60th floors. Parakeets and parrots create nests on the steel frame. And exotic animals take hold of the tower.
15 Years after People: A fire burns through Baku. But the tower is so tall, the fire can't climb up it.
35 Years after People: The interior of the Azerbaijan Tower is almost unrecognizable. The roof has been severely damaged by animals. The lights have fallen down and broken on the ground. In the foyer, the chandeliers have fallen down and shattered. Plants have invaded the bottom area of the Azerbaijan Tower.
60 Years after People: The tower is doing surprisingly well. Why? The tower was made of solid, non-reinforced, concrete. The tower will survive for fifteen more years.
75 Years after People: The Azerbaijan Tower is now vulnerable after seventy-five years of neglect. But a disastrous thing happens. The main tower collapses, causing the second tower to fall from the front first, then the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. The main tower caves in, destroying the interior. This is the first building destroyed in Azerbaijan, although in London the Shard still stands. Also in London, the Gherkin and One Canada Square even still stands. And 25 Canada Square and 8 Canada Square still stands, too.
