|CON|Temporary Library
Plovdiv - first prize
The architectural installation represents a |CON|Temporary library containing solely books of contemporary art. It provides lots of comfortable places to sit/ lay, bookcases, magazines and newspapers’ shelves, as well as a computer with very rich and detailed multimedia and video archive of contemporary artists. The installation is located at the largest and main room of the abandoned since decades old Turkish bath (also known as hammam). The bath is a unique architectural monument from the XVI century built over an even older Roman bath. The traditional Turkish bath has been reconstructed many times over the years and it has been working and used until the 90s of the XXth century.
