Georgian Public Service Hall Resembles Treetop Canopy, Giant Birds Everywhere Rejoice

Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas recently designed the Tbilisi Public Service Hall, a new home for several government agencies to include the National Bank of Georgia, the Ministry of Energy, and the Civil and National Registry. Likely what will stand out most at first (or second, or third!) glance are those curious rooftop layered canopies overlapping a plethora of glass blocks making up the towering walls of the structure. ‘Canopy’ is a particularly appropriate descriptor in this instance, as the architects have referred to these curvy, bending toppers as ‘petals’ or ‘leaves.’

Take a stroll in and around The Republic of Georgia’s latest futuristic design, thanks to these photographs by Studio Fuksas.
