Day 62 of the 100 Day Studio: Nikoloz Japaridze of Architects of Invention discusses how the practice, with offices in London and Tbilisi has had to design and deliver buildings with remote tools. The practice's first buildings were built in a rush, to meet deadlines of unstoppable state development, to mark new era of departure from post-Soviet heritage of newly formed republic of Georgia. The rush to produce a new architecture has collided with a disorganisation and lack of regulation and infrastructure to produce a certain chaos. Currently, the practice is designing the first fully timber pre-fab seven storey residential building in Tbilisi, which will be manufactured in Austria, delivered to the site and assembled in four months.
