New Parliament

Local nameსაქართველოს პარლამენტი
LocationKutaisi, Georgia

The Georgian Parliament Building in Kutaisi was constructed from 2011 to 2012 in Kutaisi, traditionally the second most important city of Georgia, 231 kilometres west of Tbilisi, the nation's capital, to house the Parliament of Georgia. Commissioned from the CMD Inginieros, the building was inaugurated on 26 May 2012 and, according to the respective constitutional clause, became the main seat of the newly elected Parliament in October 2012 until the legislature moved back to Tbilisi in January 2019.

The exterior of the building is dominated by a 100-metre by 150-metre oval-shaped great glass and steel dome ploughed by a roof-like concrete element that rests on the vault. It was constructed on the initiative of then-President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili on the site of a memorial to Soviet soldiers of World War II; the monument was demolished with explosives to free space for the construction in December 2009, accidentally killing two people, a mother and a daughter.
