Tbilisi Business Centre Building – 8 Apr 2013
This building is a new 16,000 sqm business centre for the government of Tbilisi. The design is a direct response to its neighbouring building, one of the most important examples of Soviet architecture. Robin Monotti’s design proposes a glass building that contrasts with the solidity of its concrete neighbour, home to the Bank of Georgia, and adopts a circular plan that avoids competing with its box-like cantilevers. A reference to the neighbour’s cantilevers is present in the overhanging circular discs that create each floor of the building.
