Conceptual designThe alphabet, the uniqueness of Georgian people
The design starts from the idea of DNA, the nucleid acid that contains the genetic instructions. DNA is often compared to a set of blueprints; other DNA sequences have structural purposes, or are involved in regulating the use of this genetic information. So the tower transmits the uniqueness of the Georgian people with his original script. Two helix bands rise along the tower holding 33 pieces of the Georgian alphabet of 4 meters height made in aluminum.
The Mkhedruli alphabet –named in that way for the ancient word mkhedari, horseman- was born in the 14th century as an specific writing for secular documents. The beauty of this characters is now projected onto a major scale, never seen before, on the tower's design spreading the personality of an hospitable and open country, proud of their cultural heritage.
