Eurovision 2012

The 57th EuroVision Song Contest was held from 22nd – 26th May 2012 in the capital of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Baku. The Azerbaijani duo Ell & Nikki won the competition last year with the song of Running Scared. The official motto of the event was "Light Your Fire!"

Baku Crystal Hall, built by the German ALPINE Construction Company has been awarded in London with the "European Property Award 2012" in the category of "Best Leisure Development". Baku Crystal hosted the Euro Vision Song Contest 2012 and was built in a record time of only 8.5 months.

The architectural facade concept of the Crystal Hall is based on the structure of crystals. The 230 meters long and 160 meters wide hall construction is spanned by a translucent membrane skin. Up to 25,000 spectators in the arena are thus protected from the sun and the weather. More than 80,000 lamps integrated into the facade bring glitter and lights to the hall during night.
