TSPA team members, Thomas Stellmach, Franziska Schreiber and Evandro Holz are currently in Tbilisi, Georgia holding meetings with various members of the City Council, learning from the  challenges and opportunities of the local government and sharing expert knowledge.

During this visit Georgian authorities published an article relating a meeting between our colleagues Thomas Stellmach, Franziska Schreiber and Evandro Holz with Revaz Sokhadze, Chairman of Urban Planning and Urban Commission of Tbilisi City Council, Levan Zhorzholiani, Chairman of Legal Issues and Human Rights Commission and Otar Grigolia, Chairman of Financial-Budget and Property Management Commission.

In this meeting members of the Tbilisi City Council thanked our experts in urban planning and development for the visit and provided information on the challenges facing urban development in the capital. TSPA is looking forward for a future collaboration with the city.

We share some photos of the meeting.

A Masterplan won’t solve anything

Russian cities usually have a functioning city administration, often a strong civil society, and s strong framework of urban regulations. Yet, when we look at the current state of the urban environment, they are very much the opposite of an attractive, liveable city.

Thomas of TSPA and Anton Shatalov of Proektdevelopment, a young innovative office which forms part of the fledgling Siberian urban design scene, explore this question using Krasnoyarsk as an example. The conversation was hosted by gorodprima. Read the full dialogue (in Russian) here: “A Masterplan won’t solve anything“.
