The project site is located inside the green area called Rhike Park, in Tbilisi, Georgia. The building consists of two different soft shaped elements that are connected as a unique body at the retaining wall. Every elements has his own function: The Musical Theatre and the Exhibition Hall. The north part of the building contains the Musical Theatre Hall (566 seats), the foyer and several facilities, together with technical spaces for theatre machinery and various storages. The Exhibition Hall opens his great entrance with a ramp that brings visitors from the street level. The Music Theatre Hall, on the contrary, soars from the ground and allows the users staying in the foyer and in the cafeteria to have a view to the river and the skyline of the city. It is a periscope to the city and looks towards the river framing the historic core of the Old Tbilisi.

During the middle of the last century, the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech was guided by the work and pedagogy of architect Paul M. Heffernan (director, 1956-75), who contributed to the establishment of a modern discourse based on Bauhaus-influenced functionalism. Heffernan also exerted a significant impact on the campus at-large, designing several modern buildings during the 1940s and 50s that constitute an enclave he labeled the “academic village.” The Hinman Research Building (1939) was the first of these to be built; it received major additions and renovations throughout the last century to accommodate changing needs.

HIGHWAY REST STOPS 1-2, Rest Stops for the new Highway in Gori, Georgia
In 2009, the head of the Roads Department of Georgia commissioned J. MAYER H. to design a system of 20 rest stops for the new highway, a thoroughfare that will run through Georgia and serve as a connection between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey. Two first rest stops were completed in 2011 near Gori, a third in Lochini was finished 2012. The new rest stops are located on selected scenic viewpoints along the route and serve as activators for their area and neighboring cities, including not only nearby a gas stations and supermarket, but also a farmers market and a cultural space for local arts and crafts.

At Young Harris College, when talking about the institution’s newest residence hall, you could recite the adage, “What’s old is new again,” and on the face of it, you’d be right.
YHC, which less than six years ago began its transition from a two-year to a four-year institution, hired architecture and planning firm Lord Aeck Sargent (LAS) to design the Towers– a 226-bed residence hall that opened in August 2013.
With double occupancy rooms arranged around communal bathrooms and a shared common area, the Towers sounds a lot like a mid-20th century dormitory building. But, there’s a twist.
The Towers at Young Harris College is a residence hall for freshmen only. It limits the space in the living units and maximizes common spaces in order to encourage socialization and community building among students just entering college,Image Courtesy © Jonathan Hillyer

The new Adamsville Regional Health Center represented a rare investment of public resources in a sparsely developed, sometimes overlooked section of Atlanta. It would have to serve not only as a medical facility, but also as a catalyst for cohesion and future growth in the neighborhood.

Georgia Tech’s new Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory develops technologies to reduce the earth’s carbon footprint. From design and construction to daily operation, the laboratory seeks to achieve carbon-neutral “net-zero site energy use” (defined as zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually) expressed simply, directly and honestly through a “no frills” design. The lab sets a new standard for sustainable design for buildings of its type by optimizing passive energy technologies, reducing electricity loads, and maximizing the use of renewable energy. It houses a variety of energy research programs requiring large-scale (high-bay) and intermediate-scale (mid-bay) capabilities.
