Tobacco City - logo, branding & photography
In the very heart of Plovdiv / Bulgaria is an area that fascinates with its past beauty and smell of tobacco: the so-called Tobacco City. The unique tobacco warehouses from the 1920's, with few exceptions, are now abandoned, many of them in extremely bad condition. Some have already been demolished and others restored without consideration of restoration standards to become offices and/or luxury residential buildings. The project "Tobacco City" is an essential part of Plovdiv 2019 bid book for European Capital of Culture. It belongs to the platform TRANSFORM and the cluster URBAN DREEMS.
