There is a lot of expectation for the completion of the new Rhike Park in Tbilisi, Georgia: a project designed in 2010 by the studio of the famous Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas, author of the controversial “Nuvola” building in Rome.
Located inside a large green area, the project includes the construction of a building composed of two different soft shaped elements that are connected as a unique body at the retaining wall.
The first volume, located in the north part of the complex, hosts the Musical Theatre Hall provided with 566 seats, the foyer, several facilities, technical spaces and storages; moreover, the Theatre occupies an elevated position over the ground and offers a spectacular panoramic view to the river nearby and the urban skyline from the foyer and the cafeteria.
On the other side, the second volume hosts the Exhibition Hall, accessible via a ramp that link the entrance to the street level, acting as a passageway for the visitors.
The aim of the complex is to recall the shape and the function of a periscope which looks towards lively Tbilisi and its historic city centre.
