This is an open network for architects, art and architectural historians, urban and landscape planers, designers, philosophers, mathematicians, engineers, artists and journalists, individuals and organizations, professionals and other Tbilisi lovers.

The Network aims to provoke discussion, to publicize architectural critics, to encourage the preservation of our architectural heritage, to evaluate strategies to influence the development of our urban and natural environment.
