Conceived by the Board of Trustees at New Bulgarian University, the gallery was built in 2011-2012. Its project manager is George Tekev – Executive Director of NBU. The impressive exhibition hall, designed by architect Zarko Uzunov, stands out with its innovative structure allowing rich light into the premises through abundant use of glass modules. In 2012, the building was given the Sofia Municipality Award for Architecture.
“No-one is obliged to do the impossible, but New Bulgarian University and its architect Zarko Uzunov have obviously made the impossible possible. This hall is not only a gallery, it is an artwork in itself – an architectural volume wrapped in light”, Dr. Bojidar Danev – Executive Chairman of the Bulgarian Industrial Association and member of the Board of Trustees at New Bulgarian University.
