It is hard to focus on one project that I am most proud of, therefore, I will highlight the most recent one that I am very proud of. Last September we realized 'The Youth's Sphere Spot' in a mid-size Bulgarian town called Shumen. There together with an ambitious group of youngsters from the city we managed to co-create an inspiring public spot for culture, gatherings and entertainment. The focal point of the project is a structure, designed on the principle of geodesic sphere while the rest of the urban furniture was constructed by recycle materials. The structures were executed as part of two public workshops with focus on (1) the concept of geodesic sphere and (2) recycling of logistic pallets into benches, tables and litter bins to furnish the public space. This ensured a systematic and effective way of involving local youth in the physical realization of the project that brought a great feeling of satisfaction the whole community.
The site, which accommodates the intervention, on the other hand, was regenerated through injecting it with new life, functionality, additional street lightning and security via surveillance cameras. The Youth's Sphere has become instantly a vital location for local youngsters and residents who generously donated a large amount of books and even a piano to support the co-creation of this, full of culture and inspiration, spot.
