I, George Chakhava was born in 1923, in Tbilisi in the family of the office-worker. On 1941 I have graduated from the secondary school N25 and after the service in the army entered Architecture faculty of the State Polytechnical University, which I graduated from in 1949.
Up to the present day I am involved in the architectural activity. I had designed the buildings in Tbilisi, as well as abroad - in the Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afganistan and Livia.
The main inspiration of my creativity - is the unique nature of my country with its individuality and beauty of each region in harmony with mountain villages.
I was always amazed by the ordinary Georgian peasant's ability to build the house where the most expressive landscape was opened, sometimes preferring the nature's beauty to the living convenience.
that is why the mastering of complicated relief became the defined moment of my creative work. On my view, the more relief is complicated, the more possibilities have the architect.
During the time of my activity I was given the title of Honored Architect of Georgia.
In 1983 I became the State Prize owner of USSR Council of Ministers. In 1991 I was chosen as the Honored Member of the International Academy of the Architecture of the Oriental countries. Georgian Union of Architects awarded me with the medal for "The Special honor in Architecture". I also received the medals for the participation in the World War II 1941-1945 and Honorary awards of the Union of the Architects of USSR.
