3 Tbilisi Wedding Palace
Another entry from Georgia, this building looks like it could belong on a sci-fi movie set, proving that Communist architecture doesn’t necessarily have to be serious and grim. Built in 1984 by the Georgian architect Victor Djorbenadze, the Palace was designed as a church. And as it name suggests, a place to get married.
The structure comprises several distinct sections, including two spiral blocks complemented with arcades and asymmetrical window holes, together with an imposing bell tower. In 2001 the Palace was purchased by the Georgian oligarch Badri Patarkatsishvili, who used it as his personal residence until his death in 2008.
