Sofia Architecture Week or SAW for short is an event taking place in Sofia, Bulgaria from 31.10.2009 to 05.11.2009. This is its second year and the motto is "changing urban visions". You can find the forum here: www.sofiaarchitectureweek.com. The whole idea is nice and intelligent. Visit if you have time.
Well, I must admit that the lectures went pretty well, but the organization was awful and a real pain in the ass. The auditorium was cold but with no! ventilation, the door was only semi-open so the access was hard and slowly, so was the leaving. Bad, bad French translation with no sense and no comprehension with the subject. Some nasty comments, no vision for the future.
I am tired as hell, but pleased. I learned some new things and I saw a little flickering light in the end of the tunnel after all. Maybe we will start making our cities better, our perspectives wider and our sense of beauty more human.
At least I hope we do so.
So here are some pictures from the lectures:
