“Steampunk” Museum of Communism
National contest entry. I will be posting more images soon.
The project aims to convert an old heating factory in Botosani into Romania’s “Museum of Daily Life in the Communist Regime”. The aim of the museum is to evoke the brutal transformations of the Communist era, its programs of forced industrialization, its policies of public control and its Utopian ideals which led to alienation, terror and trauma.
In creating the architectural proposition and the visual representations I was inspired by Steampunk and Cyberpunk artwork, comics and matte paintings.
