This is our proposition for “Museum of Daily Life in Communism”. Collaboration with Iuliana Bila. One of the final 5 awarded projects. (more…)
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.
@ Improve Architecture
Facade Design. Most housing buildings in Romania feature simple extruded facades, by multiplying a base-floor. In this project I aimed to break the repetitive monotony by separating the block in 3 horizontal fields.
I was asked by a missionary to provide an architectural concept for a future church in the Bolivian jungle, four days away from civilisation. The church will be voluntarily built by the locals.
An old heating factory in the city of Botosani is about to be converted to an unique program: the Museum of Daily Life under Communism. Project coming soon.
