Building upon ideals
started in September 2009 as an initiative of Ljubo Georgiev
. The first manifestation of the project was during the Sofia Architecture Week 09, when a debate was organized under the title Neighbourhoods on the edge
. Subsequently an article on the topic was published at the Dutch online forum for the built environment Ruimtevolk
. At the beginning of 2010 the initiative grew, receiving the financial support of the SFA (the Netherlands Architecture Funds)
incorporating professionals from various fields, all concerning the built environment. Since June 2010 the project is being realised also through the support of FBKVB (Funds for the Arts, Design and Architecture)
Currently the project is taking the form of participating in the strategy making for the neighbourhood Crabbehof in Dordrecht.
