The capital of Georgia practically presents a new face every day. Ambitious building projects and large foreign investments are constantly changing the cityscape of Tbilisi. This relentless development is the subject of much debate among the city’s residents: What should be preserved and what may be subjected to change? What is available for sale and what is common property? What do we want to remember and what are our sources of inspiration?
Urban planners, architects, and activists recount what the changes mean to them and to life in this city. The diverse and impressively illustrated contributions give an immediate view of the multiple changes. This story by Sebastian Pranz and Fabian Weiss was created as part of the book project Tbilisi – Archive of Transition.
