WhATA Association 10th years anniversary books
WhATA is a Bulgarian architecture organization that started ten years ago as a blog and organized the first and most respected architecture/urbanism awards in Bulgaria overwriting the status quo of all government and private compromised contests.
The brief was to design a book holding up all ten years of awards which marks Bulgaria’s new architecture history after the great economic crisis of 2008 which left a big scar on everything in the country - from independent construction works to government and municipality projects.
The book would be the one place where architects, investors, and historians look to see how the architecture and urban scene in the country have developed in the recent decade.
