Propped up on stilts to keep it safe from flooding, a common technique in the region, the Lazika Municipality Building is comprised of three distinct volumes that are nonetheless interconnected. The base will hold the public service functions while the curved glass building in the middle is a wedding hall. On top, a rectilinear block with a perforated metal screen will be used as an office building. A red glass elevator connects the various levels.
Problem is, the city for which this municipal building was constructed does not yet exist! "The client needed to be aware of the risks associated with anticipated global warming and subsequent sea level rises which could be in excess of one metre during the next century," Architects of Invention founder Niko Japaridze told Dezeen. Constructed at sea level, the building and indeed the entire "instant city" are particularly vulnerable.
