Having an educational background in architecture, Loredana has a strong focus on the integration of the architectural heritage in the urban development process. Her professional profile is filled with different types of experiments meant to answer as much as possible to the HOWs and WHYs involved in contemporary architecture production, the social aspects involved and the multidisciplinary approach in sustainable development of urban and rural communities.


Her interest in the ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE started to develop 10 years ago, when she initiated a volunteer based research project, the Mourning Houses project. The educational foundation was consolidated at ENSA Paris-Belleville where she studied for 2 years the contemporary approach on the recent architectural heritage within a DSA specialization program. In 2013, she published the RePAD Guide.Rehabilitation_Patrimony Architecture Development, the first Romanian guide for the rehabilitation of the architectural heritage. As a junior ARCHITECT, she experienced both, large scale projects with Lauster & Radu Architects [Bucharest] and LAN Architecture [Paris] and small scale, with A A Feraru Architect et Urbanist [Paris]. The preocupation for PHOTOGRAPHY gave birth to documentary projects such as Bucharest, the little Paris?, for which she received a creation residency at the Romanian Cultural Institute in Paris and brought her some interesting collaborations, such as the one with The French Institute in Timisoara and the French Architecture office, Encore Heureux, for the 7th edition of SurExpositions, or the collaboration with the Romanian team for the Romanian participation at 2014 edition of the Architecture Biennale in Venice. In order to create a common ground for this hybrid foundation, in 2014, she founded LET’S THINK studio lab, a laboratory for creative experiments based on a multidisciplinary approach, historical research and social analysis. FORBES magazine included her name in the Romanian top 30 under 30, the 2014 edition and the ROMANIAN NATIONAL TELEVISION dedicated her one episode of their Road to Success series.

ECOLIBRARY

EcoLibrary applied for the Living Building Challenge certification, the most rigorous ecological certification standard for the built environment. The project is aiming to meet all of these requirements by maintaining the building’s footprint, using a smart drainage system, by maximizing daylight and minimizing heat loss, all the while obtaining renewable energy from pv panels, replacing the initial asbestos roof, using locally sourced materials, securing accessibility for all and maintaining the national heritage by reinterpreting the traditional through a contemporary comfort and sustainable standard.

(c) Romania Green Building Council

The building [1896] is situated in the vicinity of the catholic cathedral and the village school in Cacica, Suceava county, and it used to host a kindergarten and the village library up until the start of the ecoLibrary project [autumn 2010].


BUILDING GREENER SCHOOLS

The rehabilitation project of the Calnic school combines two main directions - the renovation of the building according to the highest ecological standard and the education in the spirit of sustainable development of the 120 students, the 26 teachers of this school and the local authority. The interior space is going to be reconfigured and optimized for a better natural lighting and a more efficient use of space. The entire installation is going to be replaced and personalized according to the specific needs of a 21st century learning institution, taking into consideration the priority requirements of the LBC 2.0 standards.


LORMONT

(c) LAN Architecture

The project involves the rehabilitation of 709 apartments structured in 9 buildings. The architectural intervention is focused on the access points, entrance halls, facades rehabilitation and the relation between buildings in the sense of a sustainable approach concerning the energy consumption efficiency and the high environmental quality.


The construction of the 74 apartments structured in 2 complexes of buildings certified HEQ is aiming to integrate the residential building aspects, public spaces hierarchisation and the environmental quality in order to generate new urban models.

COLOMBES


FREQUEL

(c) LAN Architecture

The insertion of the 30 social housing units HEQ certified aims to minimize the impact on street by setting up a facade system consisting of a minimum of openings and responding to a classical composition, regular and sober. The 4 buildings are using efficient equipment in association with renewable energy systems. The exterior materials are differentiated depending on the orientation of the facades: glass for transparency and brightness on south, Ductal ÂŽ concrete layer on north in order to minimize energy losses.

SYMVIOTIC

Sight is the main sense in which a person relates to the context of living. As individuals in society, every day, we educate ourselves to see as much as possible. Everything that we create, as architects, is linked to this very little detail: sight. But what means, in fact, seeing? SymViotic defines a place where two universes, visual and non-visual intersect. It takes shape as a cultural and educational centre dedicated to the activities that help the visually impaired people to integrate in the formal society and to raise the cultural level in the local community regarding this social category.There is so much for us to learn from the visually impaired. “Seeing” architecture is a state of mind, something hearable, smellable, tastable and touchable. This is what we can learn at SymViotic.

REGENERATION The 64 hours european competition is developed around the rehabilitation of the cultural center in Dro, Italy based on the Living Building Challenge standards. The 3 multidisciplinary teams, including various specialists selected from all over Europe were requested to present their solution developed on site during the competition. The green team came with a presentation concept in a kid language as imagined being in the library telling the rehabilitation story to some young visitors after the project would have been accomplished.

ARCHITECTURE FOR KIDS

Since 2014, architecture became an optional class for the 3rd and 4th grade kids in public schools in Romania. One hour per week, children are taught about the basic principles in architecture and design. Architects and teachers, together, organise interactive activities, a fun learning alternative to the traditional educational system. Beside this long term commitment, occasionally, presentations and workshops complete this refreshing sharing experience.

MOURNING HOUSES

The MOURNING HOUSES project started in 2006 as a voluntary based initiative structured in two complementary components: achievement of a national public online database of degraded heritage buildings and promotion of this archive to the large public, as awareness about the bad situation of the Romanian architectural heritage. In 2010, the inventory of buildings from Bucharest was finished, resulting in a list of about 4,000 buildings, damaged, demolished or pending demolition, historic monuments, buildings in protected areas, or simple constructions with architectural and historic value The awareness activities developed in the last 9 years targeted the general public and were always based on the documentation resulting from inventory. An interactive approach in an accessible language, with the significant message for mass media, generating TV campaigns and a strong current in the civil society.


NOT MOURNING HOUSES

Based on the experience of the Mourning Houses project, this new approach, that started in 2010, aims to develop an inventory of successful rehabilitation projects, and promote them in order to increase urban architectural culture among the non-professionals, create public awareness and better inform the investors. The Not Mourning Houses might be a strong foundation for the development of urban policies and campaigns to promote the architectural heritage and its importance in the actual urban contexte.


RePAD NETWORK

One year after the launch of the rehabilitation guide, the project RePAD.Rehabilitation_ Patrimony Architecture Development is entering a new phase. At the end of 2014, the RePAD specialists network was launched. RePAD is a communication platform for the rehabilitation of the Romanian architectural heritage in the sense of integrated urban development, including social, economic, cultural and environmental factors. Specialities taken into account varies, the list of proposals remaining open as long as it is proven to be related with the architectural heritage topic. Network members may be specialists from abroad, with experience in international projects.

SITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

In Eastern Europe the assimilation of modernism proved to be a rather divergent process, correlated with tumultuous and contradictory sociopolical events. The urban space suffered successive destructuring, caused by massive industrial insertions with direct impact on urban and demographic level. Once industrial sites were closed down, the remaining locations became modern ruins, devoid of content, bare of utility, leaving behind an outer landscape, shattering and desolate.


BUCHAREST, THE LITTLE PARIS?

After a world war, 50 years of communism and an economic boom in the early 21st century, in the actual socio-cultural context, what is like today the capital of Romania? Is Bucharest still the “little Paris�? Is it a city with its own identity? Do we still have a close relationship between Bucharest and Paris? If the answer is positive, how does this work and by which means? Bucharest, Little Paris? aims to draw public attention to the identity of the Romanian capital, based on an urban comparative analysis through art photography. The project involves a visual documentary presenting mirrored representative elements for the urban identity of the two capitals. The goal of the project is not to provide answers but to raise questions and to support professional debates.


MIETTES DE PARADIS

For the sixth year in a row, the Art Museum in Timisoara hosted the SurExpositions event, an initiative of the French Institute. The exhibition “Miettes de Paradis� (Bits of Paradise) represents a concept proposed by the french architecture office Encore Heureux. The curators of the projects, through the urban inventory created in four days by a mixed team of Romanian and French photographers, are aiming to present not a personal answer to the matter but to raise a question: how do we relate today to the idea of Paradise? Which are the bits of Paradise that each one of us is discovering in the city to leave in or discovering for the first time?
