The project 'Building Together – Learning from Stolipinovo' encourages togetherness through architectural workshops, where we learn from the craftsmen of Stolipinovo and from each other. In April and May, we were at the workshops of the woodworker Berul and the ironworker Zdravko. Together with the craftsmen, a group of enthusiastic volunteers and the local community, we worked on the ‘Door’ (art installation), a meeting place and painting boards.
From July 12th to 14th, we organize a design workshop in order to search together for innovative solutions for urban furniture, facilities for children and small interventions to be placed around the new playground in Stolipinovo. Join and challenge your imagination for alternative architecture. Registration until 5th July.
The design workshop will take place on 12, 13 and 14 July as an intensive three-day challenge to invent the intervention in Stolipinovo, which we will build together two months later. School and university students, specialists, citizens and guests of Plovdiv will be involved in field trips, brainstorming and work sessions in a shared process of conceptualisation and design of the future intervention. We invite all interested in urban environment development, social design, and intercultural dialogue to apply for participation.
You can fill in this form until 23:59 of 7 July. We will select a team of twenty participants of diverse experience, interests, and skills.
In September we will build together again with the craftsmen from Stolipinovo to realize the ideas from the design workshop for a better urban environment for play and recreation.
The second architectural workshop was held on 11 and 12 May. Selected moments in this video:
