Tbilisi Public Service Hall by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

Eccentric towering steel mushrooms create a canopy over the roof of this glazed office block in Tbilisi (Georgia), designed by the italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas.

The building, named Tbilisi Public Service Hall, houses a series of government organisations like the National Bank of Georgia, the Ministry of Energy and the Civil and National Registry Agency. Its structure is composed of seven overlapping glass blocks which surround a central service hall where customers can obtain passports, marriage registration, and other permits and documents. This hall is a 35-metre-high space under the shelter of canopy structures and hasn’t an additional roof; the architects compare these structures to trees and their curved uppers to petals or leaves.

The seven perimeter blocks contain different departments and are connected at the upper levels by a series of bridges. This building is one of the many projects for new infrastructure realized in Georgia in recent months.
