English to Bulgarian: Translation of an excerpt from Barbara Vine's novel "The Chimney Sweeper's Boy"
General field: Art/Literary
Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English
He wanted a family of his own. He was very young when he understood this, fifteen or sixteen. Because he was accustomed, even then, to examining his thoughts and searching his soul, he corrected himself, deciding that what he wanted was a family to add to his existing one. Children of his own. He imagined giving his brothers and sisters children to love and giving his children uncles and aunts. His dream encompassed them all living together somewhere, in a big house, the kind they had never know. He was old enough to know how unlikely this was.
Translation - Bulgarian
Той искаше собствено семейство. Беше много млад, когато го осъзна, на петнайсет или шестнайсет. Защото беше свикнал, още тогава, да обръща внимание на мислите си и да се взира в душата си. Поправи се, реши, че всъщност иска друго семейство, което да добави към онова, което вече имаше. Собствени деца. Представи си как дарява на братята и сестрите си деца, които да обичат, а на децата си – чичовци и лели. В мечтите му всички те живееха някъде заедно, в голяма къща, каквато никога не бяха имали. Беше достатъчно голям, за да осъзнава колко малка е вероятността това да се осъществи.

A Town Piece

text: Ştefan Ghenciulescu


This project is far more than a mere rehabilitation and extension of a historical ensemble. Urban surgery blends with the creation of a public space starting from a strictly private investment. Perceived against the backdrop of explosive individualism and the incapacity of public authorities to define genuine strategies so typical of contemporary Romania, the injection of urbanity this project brings becomes a good practice example as much as an alternative to the catastrophic effects born of autistic interventions and developers’ urbanism.

The place we are dealing with is highly representative for the collisions which mark Bucharest’s urban fabric: it stands on the city’s central ring, verging on both the central historical area and modern era extensions. In the 1970s – 1980s, the totalitarian intervention carried out by the Ceauşescu regime demolished many areas along the boulevard to make room for continuous rows of blocks of flats. Once the curtain was completed here, the operation was meant to continue deeper into the city’s fabric. The 1989 Revolution put a stop to it so that nowadays a concrete wall meets the eye along tens of kilometres: behind it lay both residual spaces and the injured historical city. Fast-paced gentrification and an over liberal development hit the area after 1990.

Градско произведение

текст: Щефан Генчулеску


Този проект е нещо много повече от едно възстановяване и разширяване на исторически ансамбъл. Убранистичната хирургия се комбинира със създаването на
обществено пространство, започвайки от една изцяло частна инвестиция. Разглеждана на фона на експлозивния индивидуализъм и неспособността на обществените власти да очертаят оригинални стратегии, които са толкова типични за съвременна Румъния, инжекцията урбанизъм, която този проект придава, се превръща в пример за добра
практика, както и в алтернатива на катастрофалните ефекти, породени от аутистични намеси и предприемаческия урбанизъм.

Мястото, за което става въпрос, е ярък представител на „противоречията”, които
бележат градската тъкан на Букурещ: намира се в централния пръстен на града и
граничи както с централната историческа зона, така и с добавките на модерната
епоха. През 70-те и 80-те години на миналия век тоталитарните намеси, осъществени от режима на Чаушеску, разрушават много зони по протежение на булеварда, за да освободят място за дълги редици жилищни блокове. След като завесата вече е изградена, идеята на операцията е била да се задълбочи в градската тъкан. Революцията от 1989 г. слага край на това, така че сега погледът се спира на бетонна стена, която продължава десетки километри: а зад нея се намират както останали от миналото пространства, така и нараненият исторически град. След 1990 г. зоната попада под влиянието на бързо облагородяване и твърде либерални строителни проекти.
