Bulgaria, 2015-2016

In collaboration with the "Architecture" magazine.

The “Architecture criticism” series was a joint initiative of ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK and “Architecture” magazine. The series included 7 articles, which were published both online (on the festival’s website) and on print (in the magazine). The selection of authors was made by me and the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Maria Davcheva. The purpose of “Architecture criticism” was to stimulate the professional, instead of the emotional debate about Bulgarian cities. Our intention was to make those articles into a source for reasoned and informed opinions, as well as a relevant input to the professional debate.

The published article were (in Bulgarian):
Why (and how) should we involve citizens?
Architectural competitions
Thoughts on Sofia
Jane Jacobs and Jan Gehl
The monuments of Socialism
Spatial planning
The city as a school
