SHARE Sofia 2018 is organised as a group of various events:

Architectural City Tour "Bulgarian Modernist Architecture"

Junior Session “SHARE – meet the architect” at the Faculty of Architecture of University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy.

Junior Session SHARE is a motivational conference for the architecture students and it has the purpose to encourage, stimulate and support the students to discover the new trends in architecture from internationally well-known specialists, and therefore the students can benefit of their knowledge in practice. The speaker of this motivational conference will be Serban Tiganas, General Secretary International Union of Architects with the presentation of Architecture, a 5 Courses Dinner.

On this line of thought, we are also delighted to inform you that SHARE Sofia 2018 hosted the meeting of the Consultative Council of Architects in Central and Eastern Europe (CCA CEE), a collaborative organization born inside the SHARE Society that brings together representatives of the architect's chambers and the most relevant architectural associations in the region. We hope our event represented the best occasion to present to all of you the CCA-CEE Manifesto and give a voice to Central and Eastern European architecture and culture. We strongly believe our efforts inside the SHARE Community are relevant for the quality and future of architecture in the region!

SHARE Sofia 2018 will also host the first edition of The Bulgarian Architecture Awards. It is an ambitious event for excellence in the design and execution of the space built in Bulgaria. Projects are assessed not only aesthetically and technically, but also in terms of the social, cultural, and economic impact they have on the general public.


SHARE Sofia 2018 is organized by Pro event Association, ABplus events and the Chamber of Architects in Bulgaria (KAB).
