When describing him as an architect it is hard to attribute Mr Gogidze to any particular movements of the field as he sees himself primary as an experimenter seeking to find specific material form for each new enterprise rather than pursuing the unified formal stylistic language. Indeed the power of expression based first of all on the personal strength of vision stands for him stands in a much higher rank of priorities than a mere development of a static professional signature. Similarly to Picasso, whose body of work includes early work, the Blue Period, the Rose Period, the African Period, Cubism, Neoclassicism, Surrealism, and later period. For an inquisitive perfectionist like Vasily Gogidze the everlasting pursuit of the sublime form has led him to approach every single project individually as an opportunity to conduct a new experiment based first of all on the unique context of every programme, thus ensuring the singularity of his work. As Jean Nouvel said “Architecture means transformation, organizing the mutations of what is already there”, on the other hand Architecture for him serves as a determinant of the surrounding space by itself, the creator of a new reality. His work experience is a repeating confrontation between the ineluctable modality of the visible and the desire for the reality to surpass itself, exceeding its objective limits.
