airport in mestia

berlin-based practice j. mayer h. architects has completed a new airport building 
in mestia, georgia. developed as a part of the highland town's plans to spur its
tourism industry, the project was constructed in a mere three months. 

comprised of three distinct wings, the design is dynamically wrapped in a pattern 
of tinted glazing and solid white cladding. two branches curve upwards towards the sky, 
generating a variation in interior ceiling conditions. while relatively hidden from
the outside, the structural ribs of the building create a rhythmic effect on the inside.
