ARCHITECTURE: Sarpi border checkpoint in Georgia

I was inspired by this interesting design, the Sarpi Border Checkpoint in Georgia, which is built like the waves. You are sure to find the construction of this checkpoint amazing, simply due to the fact that the architecture involved is unique. Anyone who visits the small village of Sarpi in Georgia will be amazed to see the wavy architecture of the checkpoint, which is proving to be the main attraction here.

The building, completed in 2011 by the Berlin-based studio J.Mayer H. Architects, works as the border business travel checkpoint. The need for the checkpoint is due to the fact that Sarpi is an important village situated in the border-line of Georgia and Turkey. And because of the modern architecture it helps give the customs headquarters a point of convergence of idea and the people.
