AI is an international partnership practicing contemporary architecture, urbanism, and design led by director Nikoloz Japaridze. To accommodate a range of projects throughout the world, AI maintains offices in London and Tbilisi. Practice was established in 2010 in Georgia.
Our ambition is to establish an international practice by bringing innovative ideas and sustainable solutions across the world. Our method involves careful observation of a situation, a keen understanding of the environment and change through minimal intervention and recombination. We seek to establish positive rules creating enlivened, dynamic spaces that engage with societies. Architecture is for society and our simple aim is to improve living standards and quality of life, creating ease and enjoyment for users. We look for ways to design objects that can accommodate many functions simultaneously. Our credo is that material has no dimension and that scale is transcendence.
Architects, researchers, designers, model makers, industrial designers and graphic designers work in close collaboration, and expert consultants are intimately involved from the beginning of the design process.
