MEMORIAL COMPLEX “SLANCHEV BRYAG” URBAN DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE

(MASTER THESIS PRJECT)

The subject of this project is the Slanchev Bryag Camp near Lovech, Bulgaria. The camp was part of a network of forced labor camps in communist Bulgaria. The choice of such task is motivated by: • The problematic nature of similar sites, related to negative memory. • The neglect of the territory and its degradation - danger of loss of material traces; • The need to make the site accessible and attractive - has not yet found its contemporary function; • The need for an objective and impartial way of telling this stage of history. On a conceptual level, the project takes into consideration the trauma of this site, connected to the negative memory and the communist regime, the emotional attitude towards this site. On an urban design level, the new concept complies with the existing environment and its specifics, provides multiple ways of access, takes advantage and enhances the existing railway service, creates a memorial complex that brings together the remains of the camp. Visitors are directed according to a certain sequence of passage across different sites. Passing through them one acquires knowledge, questions the past and the future. On architectural level all new objects are integrated with the environment, respect the remnants of the camp, and are subject to an overall approach of design, choice of materials and structural systems.


Forced labor camps are a type of prison where prisoners are forced to engage in physical labor as a form of punishment. In the 20th century such camps have millions of people imprisoned. Most of them were not criminals, but political opponents, enemies of the regime, unwanted in society. Some of these camps were called "places of upbringing", for political correction, but very often also served as the backbone of industry and agriculture for the benefit of the state, especially in times of war. A large number of people die in these camps due to difficult conditions life, lack of food, lack of medical care, overwork. Forced labor was a tool widely used in the Soviet Union, especially during Stalin's time. Camps in Bulgaria were of a communist type. Slanchev bryag was the last forced labor camp in Bulgaria.

The site nowadays is neglacted and has no function. It is in isolataion, surrounded by industrial territories and unaccessible. The existing structures -remains of the camp are in prcess of physical degradation. The topic of forced labor camps is not well know to people. Politicizing the topic leads to risk of loss of objective memory for the camp. It is necessary to keep all aspects of memory for it.

CONCEPT

PRINCIPLES

ACCESS FROM LOVECH The camps is located near Lovech - a town in Northern Bulgaria. It is accessible only by car. Close to the camp passes a railway line used to transport quarry stones during the time of the camp. The main site where prisioners worked were the quarry and the sioles for loading the stones in wagons. The close location of the camp to the town create opporunity for creating access to it not only by car but also by bicycle and by foot. The existing railway is a potential to develop a trainstop on the site and create another way to access this abondened site.

RAILS URBAN STRATEGY

(ACADEMIC PROJECT)

The rail network in Sofia began its construction in the 19th century and was most actively developed during the 20th century. It permanently changes the appearance of the city and is an integral part of its silhouette. The development of Sofia in the 21st century threatens to lose this integral part of the city. This type of transport creates specific social centers and public spaces in the city. Numerous high-value architectural sites have been built and are part of the rail transport network. Today there is a lack of integration of routes, terrains and buildings that no longer serve this type of transport. They become inaccessible spaces and barriers. All these spaces are opportunities for the development and rethinking of these objects with a specific identity. Another strength of their integration is to enrich and inform the public about the environmental values of this type of transport. Based on strengths, weaknesses. opportunities and threats analysis this project offers a comprehensive strategy for preserving and integrating abandoned and existing architectural and urban elements of rail transport in the city of Sofia.

concept WHY

WE NEED TO PRESERVE ‘THE RAILS’?

WHAT WE NEED TO ACHIEVE?

The function of rail transport Abandoned tracks and Although not used for their intended purpose, they could perform their binding function in another way is to connect people both with territories are the city and with other people becoming barriers

There is no communication between the people and the municipality on developments and changes in public transport

There are no indicators today to show the development and values of the city in XX century

Use of spaces and elements of rail transport to provide a field for discussion on subjects about urban environment

Awareness of the values of rail transport in the city

An expression of the integrity and diversity of rail transport through various interventions - disperse museum, information and interpretation structures in the urban environment

Easily recognizable design to connect meaningfully with the missing rail elements Interpretation of repeatability and rhythm of rail transport An interpretation of the distant perspective that rail trackscreate Awareness of missing routes, historical layers and urban change as well as the benefits of this type of transportation There is no memory for the existence of missing rails

There is no field for expressing views on public transport and the future of the city that reach the municipality

Revaluation and re-functionalization of routes, territories and buildings, according to the specific situation

Communication to improve public transport

concept - architecture design

Missing tracks from old rails

HOW ARE WE GOING TO ACHIEVE IT?

Curiosity about history, changes and development of Sofia

Communication between citizens and the municipality

Urban design elements (luminaires, urban transport stops, dashboards) inspired by main rail transport features Repeating the new elements over a certain distance in the directions of the missing routes Element - a frame reminiscent of this characteristic of rail transport Dashboards - pictures, text, maps and other types of visual materials QR codes integrated with new elements and free internet connection, Re-create a mailbox - element of old trams design to access an online platform for community related opinions and alerts

Design of main bedroom and bathroom were the rooms that I was participating the most. These rooms follow the overall approach for this interior. Different textures and light colors were used to emphasize the bed itself. Reflective surfaces create depth in the bathroom, black and white colors enhance the simplistic and minimalist look of the room.

HOUSE SOFIA PARK

TEAMWORK ARCHITECTURE PROJECT

(INTERNSHIP)

This is a teamwork project that I was participating in. It was developed during my internship in an architecture studio - Blueprint Architects in Sofia. The house is located on the outskirts of Sofia. The site provides valuable views towards Vitosha mountain and Sofia. That was one of the main potentials that were exploited during the design process. The house was designed following the best possible earth orientations and terrain morphology for the most comfortable living and energy efficiency.


south - west elevation

The project was preliminary defined as a contemporary house with rational spaces, indoor climate comfort and big garden with pool, many balconies that blur the border between indoor and outdoor. The veranda and projecting balcony connects the house with the garden and nature. The house is wide open towards the garden and more inclosed towards the street. On the first level is situated the living zone and on the second level - the bedrooms.

ON THE LIMIT

ARCTIC UNDERWATER CLIMATE CHANGE OBSERVATORY

(RETHINKING ARCHITECTURE COMPETITION)

The Arctic is one of the most unexplored ocean areas on the planet and is undergoing rapid environmental change. While we understand the effects of climate change on the polar ice caps, we know very little about the changes to the marine life and global oceanic currents underneath. Situated just below the arctic ice, the scientific base aims to explore the depths of the ocean. Its position - on the border between water and atmosphere allows to use both environments as energy sources and provides protection from the harsh weather conditions. The base moves underwater, allowing it to explore a bigger part of the Arctic. It drills holes in the ice shelf and attaches to it, using its retractable legs to stabilise itself. It can use wind and water currents to create energy. The scientists examine the depths of the ocean with the drone probes while they can exit the ship through the escape tunnel and take samples from the ice and air above. When the area is examined or the ice shelf becomes unstable, the base can leave and move to another location.
