Strategy and development at Bacaia Village Faze I: Urban and Regional Planning
Project info Workshop: Bachelor thesis project - Individual project Year and Institute: 2012 Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism Duration: 3 months Site location: Geoagiu County, Romania
The Bachelor Degree was based on an analysis form the overall approach to the architectural object of the administrative territorial unit, Geoagiu, Hunedoara, Romania.
Relations between cities In Vision
The Geoagiu County has two strong development directions, North-South and WestEast which are not fully exploited. The strategy is to develop each city and village located on the development directions, on their main activities. The purpose is to have economic efficiency and diversity inside the region and to prevent competition between the cities.
Main Task: My Bachelor Thesis is formed by two main parts: Faze I: Create a startegy for developing Geoagiu county, a turism economy based area. Faze II: Chose one of the countyâ€™s settlements, in my case, Bacaia Village, and to create a development scenario. The architectural project had to be connected with the strategy.
Some small cities are strategically located but unpopulated and weak, therefore the second part of the project will present the economical, educational and touristic development of the northernmost small city of Geoagiu, Bacaia.

Site Plan for developing Bacaia Village
Staging the interventions in the villages and the evolution of the number of employees Implementing programms for social housing
Bacaia Village has as main resources, thermal and ferruginous water which are used in the treatment of intestinal diseases, rheumatic and hepatobiliary affections.
From this resource the development starts.
The proposed development will include: -housing, -temporary housing -medical and treatment center -camping zone -equestrian center -services
To develop this locality I used the natural resources mentioned above and I made a medical treatment spa situated in the center of Bacaia. Linked to the medical treatment spa, I developed accommodation units and an educational center. The last consists of a kindergarten and a primary school. Aside the spa I made a horseback riding facility as part of the rheumatic treatment. Also the capacity of the mineral water will rase and the factory itself will have another building. To achieve this, I chose to implement programs of social housing for the future employees. I estimated that in 5 years time Bacaia will have 20 more households, in 10 years another 30 and in 15 years 20 more. The families will come from the surroundings of Bacaia, the DJ 705 being an important infrastructural element of this development plan. All the important activites are concentrated in the middle of the village adjacent to the main streets. I have started to develop the mediacal treatment center and accommmodation units and educational centerlinked with it. The educational center will be further
Architecture Faze II Educational Center HAPPY CLOUDS in Bacaia Village The educational center is located nearby the river and is formed by a kindergarten and a primary school but having small proportions. The kindergarten functions for two groups of children between 3 and 6 and between 6-14. The educational center was developed by taking into consideration the proportions of the existing houses, coating and materials used in general by the local people. Considerig the principles of the sustainable development I used local materials (wood, rock, roof tiles), solar panels and thermal water heating. The building materials for the structure with wood polywood and based stone. I have also equipped the place with water, sewer, gas and electricity. The concept was to make a building integrated into the rest of the landscape and to become part of this locality but with an air of modernity.
