The architects Vladimir Alexi-Meskhishvili and Germane Ghudushauri designed the building, while Aleksandre Slovinski, Oleg Kochakidze, and Yuri Chikvaidze took care of the decorating process.
Skillfully placed on complex terrain of a central public park, this three-story structure matched the proportions of the surrounding trees.
The perfectly-built functional and artistic interior is worthy of a quick trip on its own.
The building is truly an outstanding display of late Soviet modernism and an important architectural monument of Tbilisi.
The "Chess Palace and Alpine Club" continues to serve its purpose successfully. The first floor of the building houses the Alpine Club, while the second floor is home to the Georgian Chess Federation, founded in 1877. In addition to chess classes, local as well as international tournaments are frequently organized here.
