The Coolest Rest Stop in Georgia (Unfortunately, the Georgia Between Azerbaijan and Turkey)

Curbed Atlanta is, as you might guess, focused on our fair city and the state that surrounds. But occasionally we'll bend the rules for something tangentially-related (a name sharer, perhaps) if it rises to the level of a must-see. We believe we have identified one such item. This rest stop designed by J. Mayer Architects out of Berlin is part of a series they're building through the Central Asian country of Georgia on a road connecting Azerbaijan and Turkey. We're guessing the cash gushing out of the ground (in the form of oil) in this part of the world is financing these fanciful places for weary motorists and their pets to relieve themselves. But maybe if Georgia voters see to passing T-SPLOST, we'll be able to infuse our state's transportation infrastructure with a little such style?
