abstract

The Caucasus is a hinge between East and West; a looted border territory for centuries (from Persians to the Turks) and later, under the Soviet regime, it was invested by a violent russification. Despite these vicissitudes, many Caucasian regions managed to keep part of their traditions and their pride kept hidden over the years by necessity. Today the looting of the area continues in a different form. This time by the inhabitants themselves, as well as by foreign construction companies, with the connivance of the great international studies of architecture. In both cases, the reason is that running after the fast modernisation is easy. Tourism is the alibi. And the construction industry is the means.
