About This Project

WHEN: ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK 2015

Megan Lueneberg’s exhibition “Trakiya, before and after” shows 24 photos of emblematic places and buildings in the well-known plattenbau district in Plovdiv – “Trakiya”. By comparing archive and contemporary photos, the author presents that this project, built by a group of architects in the 70’s, is a living organism, which has developed and changed significantly during the 50 years of its existence. Lueneberg is also interested in the life behind the walls, how the inhabitants of the district transform an apartment into a home – with their personal life, emotions, with their pains and enjoyments and everyday rituals. Megan Lueneberg is an architect with an interest in anthropology. Over the last two years, she has been living and doing research on the specific local color of “Trakiya”. Her exhibition is also an introduction to ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK 2016 taking place in Trakiya District and focusing on the civic engagement in creating the urban environment. Megan Lueneberg publishes her work on “Trakiya” in her blog – Everyday Trakiya.

The aerial views of “Trakiya” have been shot by SkyviewU, professional aerial photography.

Organised by the Trakiya District, Plovdiv
