Mila Chorbadzhieva: Immemorable Landscapes

21.02.2017

Designer Mila Chorbadzhieva ’s body of work, entitled Immemorable Landscapes, seeks to draw attention to and spark debate about a series of abandoned monuments in her home country, Bulgaria.

Left unattended at the end of the socialist era, the Brutalist monuments, which once represented power and control over the people, are now falling into decay and oblivion.

Her response was to create scaled down interpretations of the now crumbling architecture in stained concrete and polyester resin.

Like a set of children’s building blocks, the varied pieces can be moved around and arranged endlessly allowing the user to take control of them, perhaps considering a new use for them or at least considering how and why we build structures in the future.
