Making Buzludzha

Posted by David Hunkins on

The Buzludzha model was inspired by a visit to Sofia, during which I heard about and developed a fondness for this special building.

It's shaped a little like a UFO with a tail. Or, some have said, it looks a little like a toilet. But it was great fun to model in paper--the disk was the hardest part to figure out.

For color, it could only have red, and the letters designed as part of the Bulgarian alphabet gave it a local feel.

Barbie stood guard to make sure nobody stole the prototypes...
