From the architect. November 2011 marks the completion of Sarpi Border Checkpoint. Designed by J. MAYER H. architects the customs checkpoint is situated at the Georgian border to Turkey, at the shore of the Black Sea. With its cantilevering terraces, the tower is used as a viewing platform, with multiple levels overlooking the water and the steep part of the coastline.

There's something intelligent and familiar (soviet architecture) about this project and the interior images are just fine with all the ceiling lights.

Conceptually it resembles a contracted borderline which is obvious for even simple-minded people.

Yeah, don&#39t know about this one. Border Checkpoint, Georgia.

It is different, but that doesn&#39t make it good design.

This thing makes me want to f***ing vomit. Meaningless, formalistic tripe that screams, "Look at my puddle of wannabe architectural ejaculate!"

I think this is pretty great. I'd like more funky border crossings in the world.

when you fall in love with your project and there is no one around to tell you otherwise.

Alex Levin · November 16, 2011
