From the Designers:
Georgia has produced many eminent ballerinas. Especially, Nina Ananiashvili has acquired international fame. This ballet school was decided the construction by her foundation for not only training young ballerinas but also praising her achievement. The required program consisting of 600 seats ballet hall, ballerina training facility, studio, and residence is very simple. The client required the architect to propose an idea concerning the new multi-complex which has prerequisite, and a symbolic design which exalts the achievement of one person. Two proposals, “CORPS” and “AMPLITUDE” were submitted. The “CORPS” is an idea that supports a large horizontal roof by 2000 slim wooden columns, and is in the motif of “Corps de Ballet”. The “AMPLITUDE” also basically has the same composition as “CORPS”, but the characteristics of this idea, undulation of the large roof symbolizes a charm point of Nina’s dance, “large amplitude”.
