Incredible modern architecture of Georgia

When you think of the country of Georgia, images of rapid modernization might not spring to mind, but it should. Architect Jurgen Mayer-Hermann was invited to Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, in 2004 ‘after the country’s recently elected president, Mikheil Saakashvili, saw his work in a book.’ The results of their meeting? A program of investment in infrastructure that Mayer-Hermann ‘likens to post-war Germany.’

Over the next 10 years, Mayer-Hermann’s practice saw a huge range of uniquely designed rest stops, border checkpoints, airports, and other public buildings constructed for Saakashvili’s government. Take a look at these oddly shaped buildings–they’ll definitely make you think twice about this former Soviet republic.
