About Architecture – The Bank of Georgia Headquarters

The Bank of Georgia headquarters (Georgian: საქართველოს ბანკის სათავო ოფისი) was built in 1975 to house the Ministry of Roads. Situated on a wooded site by the Mtkvari River in Tbilisi, the 18-storey building was designed by architects Giorgi Chakhava and Zurab Jalaghania and consists of a monumental grid of interlocking concrete forms built in a “post-constructivist” style.
