NDK Research

This project was created by Bulgarian designer Mihail Mihaylov. The project is an exploration of The National Palace of Culture’s signage system. The project is very stylistically pleasing, but I really wish there was more information to fill in the projects gaps.

Is it just me or is that Palace really has a shape of some kind of head? I find it beautiful. So is the GD and the layouts.

Ivan are you talking from the front view (third pic down)? Kinda looks like a robot cyclops. I’m diggin the bathroom pictogram, specifically the women’s half-circle arms and skirt.

I was thrilled to see this in your blog! I worked alone on this and haven’t got enough time to make a wider research. Those sheets are a result of 3 hours spent walking and shooting around then sorting in order to reveal the system’s integrity along with the architecture and interior. It was more as a “visual” challenge for me and It was done as a part of my portfolio when applying for Master’s of GD in Holland.

Be sure – this building deserves a whole book to feature all its history and interesting issues around it, I hope that soon I will be able to gather more complete information, but anyway I’m glad guys that you like it!
