The campaign looking for ideas for the development of the northern and eastern wings of the Central Mineral Baths was launched on May 15, 2020. The main aim was to find a solution for the successful use of the building. Documents were submitted by four Bulgarian and foreign associations, each of which proposed a team and method of work, a summary of the concept, business plan and model for the development of the two wings of the Baths. A 15-member commission selected three of the teams, who in the span of three months had to develop in detail their concept, business plan and model for the unused part of the building.
An online presentation of the concepts for the development of the northern and eastern wings of the Central Baths was held on November 27. The three selected teams - "Sofia Baths", "Kengo Kuma & Associates Inc and Yamazaki + Ivanova Architects" and "Historical Baths" presented their detailed plans, including a concept, business plan and model for the development of the unused part of the building. The event was broadcast live on Facebook and gathered an audience of over 300 people.
These are proposals that have been considered and created by a wide range of professionals from different fields, working together to offer comprehensive solutions for the future of the building.
