Border crossings are usually designed to suck your soul while you wait in endless lines for a customs agent to approve or cancel your travel plans. But if your journeys have you crossing between Georgia and Armenia in the near future, you'll be treated to this amazing architectural wonder at the border.

Designed by Luka Machablishvili, the two-story structure looks like a rolling cascade of gigantic concrete blocks that divide the individual lanes of traffic. But the checkpoint—located in Ninotsminda, Georgia—is actually completely static. Adding to the ultra-modern beauty of the building will be a series of stained glass windows located between each of the concrete dividers, and the use of dramatic lighting in the evening which is far more appealing than just a chainlink fence.
