Batumi Slope

The Site

The site is located adjacent to The Black Sea volcanic pebble stoned cost and serves as one of the access points between the city and the sea cost. New 25 km boulevard is passing in the front of the slope. The surrounding area is mostly recreational with hotels and a public square. There is an old 19 century navigation lighthouse on the site and is incorporated into the building. Back of building is open towards the square with 3D cinema, gallery, cafes and restaurants.

Lighthouse 'Mys Burun Tabiya'

Date unknown (early 1900s) (station established under Ottoman rule in 1863). Active; focal plane 20 m (66 ft); two red flashes every 6 s. 17 m (56 ft) octagonal masonry tower with lantern and gallery. Lighthouse painted white; lantern dome is dark metallic. Russia built a lighthouse here in 1883, replacing a smaller Turkish light. Located on the point of Mys (Cape) Burun Tabiya, which partly shelters the harbor of Batumi, about 1 km (0.6 mi) northwest of the harbor light. Site open, tower closed. Admiralty E5768; NGA 19324.

Elevated Landscape

The concept behind this building centres on the notion of an elevated landscape, an open public platform which acts like an open amphitheatre for viewing the performance on the stage. However, the elevated landscape has one advantage over a ground-level plan, which is that it preserves the original land surface. The whole platform overlooks the sea and maintains access to the whole programme below.
