This publication accompanies an exhibition on Georgian architecture at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) in Frankfurt am Main, which is the first of its kind in Germany. The catalogue examines the multi-layered processes of social and urban transformation, and the resulting architecture, which traces the country's various different political periods, yet also forms part of an international context. The focus is on the new and old metropolis of the Caucasus: Tbilisi. The phenomenon of this capital city, with its history, heterogenous cultures, social stratifications, and architecture, is constantly being redesigned and restaged by different protagonists. A site for the demolition of the Old, a factory of the New, and an emerging, chaotic, confusing, and fascinating place in search of itself within its traditions, bonds, and hopes - Tbilisi is a hybrid city.
