“I thank the Bulgarian Construction Chamber and “Stroitel” newspaper for the wonderful initiative for Sofia,” said Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova, who together with Eng. Svetoslav Glosov, BCC Chairman, opened the exhibition “Look at Sofia – where construction meets history with the future.” The event was attended by Sofia councilors, contractors of construction sites, media and others. The exhibition is the first appearance of the Chamber and “Stroitel” newspaper and is dedicated to Builder’s Day. It is realized with the support of “Geostroy” AD and “Geotechmin” Ltd.
“I would like to specially congratulate the photographer Denis Buchel. The 60 works will impress Sofia residents and visitors. The most important thing is that people will see Sofia as we are changing it performing various projects jointly with builders. It manages to combine modern with cultural and historical heritage. It is nice to see the result of your work. Our work is nonstop and the final effect is seen in the photos – built underground, renovated boulevard “Vitosha” and beautiful new buildings. I invite everybody to see the exhibition. I think it will be a great success and will make Sofia residents love more their city and take care of it,” said Sofia Mayor in her speech.
“Always hurrying in our everyday life, we do not notice what surrounds us and Sofia is changing every day. In the exhibition we can show the buildings and boulevards that we have made recently and we can look to the future. I want to thank the Mayor Yordanka Fandakova for the support to the exhibition, for the cooperation we have as builders and the job opportunities that Sofia Municipality provides for us. I want also to thank fellow builders because at the basis of these projects stand their tireless work and high professionalism. We will continue to do everything we can our city to become more beautiful and good for living,” said Eng. Svetoslav Glosov. “I hope this exhibition will give a new look to the capital. At the photos you will see some iconic for Sofia old and new buildings, renovated and newly built infrastructure sites built under European projects or with funds of Sofia Municipality from Bulgarian builders, members of the Chamber. I expect that the exhibition will enable Sofia residents and guests to find some unfamiliar places and to love more our city,” he added.
“It was incredibly challenging to do this exhibition.
I had only three weeks for photos. With great enthusiasm I photographed Sofia and as a foreigner I found it for myself. Thank you for the opportunity that was given to me and I hope that will be built many more sites to shoot,’’ said photographer Denis Buchel.
The exhibition will be exposed on the pedestrian bridge over boulevard “Bulgaria” near the National Palace of Culture until 14 November.
