The semi-spherical construction outside the capital has sparked heated debate. Proponents stress the symbolism of the transparent design and see its new location near Abkhazia as a decentralization of power, while critiques fear a marginalisation of the unicameral legislature whose power has grown following the Rose Revolution in 2003. On top of that, the new building stands on a former Soviet war memorial, whose clumsy demolition caused two deaths.
