We all know that McDonald’s wins awards in the fast-food category, but architecture? A McDonald’s building in Batumi (no clue where that is) was nominated as one of the best buildings of the year:
In one of the newly urbanized areas of Batumi, Georgia, on the Black Sea Coast, architect Giorgi Khmaladze built an award-winning McDonald’s. Combined with a fuel station and recreational areas, this efficient structure just won distinction as the best commercial building of the year from architecture website ArchDaily. The architectural news outlet had its readers vote for the best buildings in 14 categories, choosing from hundreds of new buildings constructed in 2013.
