“Presently reviewing the past to consciously move towards the future.�


PROFILE landscape and urban designer

PASSION | Art meaning is not only about the beauty of a masterpiece, but instead is found below, into what I call the individual perception of experiencing it. Therefore, urban and landscape design is more than the art of creating and shaping our environments, is about creating a sense of place and experientially rich journeys. It is about this translation of the art’s abstractness into our daily basics as the way of perceiving and getting in touch with our environments, which has driven my passion for urban and landscape design. BACKGROUND | As a post-graduated Urban Designer at Aalborg University and with a bachelor in Architecture and Urbanism at “Ion Mincu” University, Bucharest, Romania, I have gained wise knowledge in fields as: urban design, planning and mobility, architecture and landscape architecture. In terms of my professional profile, I had the pleasure to experience and work with both the administrative sector (Bucharest, Rotterdam and Helsingor’s Municipalities), as well as private sector (Re-act Now Studio, Romania; West 8, Netherlands). Being an active and creative person, during this time I had also got involved in activities as Graphic design, PR and Visual Image Development, reason for why I have a good eye for the graphical materials as well as the ability to enforce the development process of a project by creating and perceiving the design from different angles and scales. SKILLS | As an Urban and Landscape Designer, my graphical abilities are represented in projects by different visual materials as: technical drawings (AutoCad 2D; Rhino 2D), 3D representation (Sketchup, Rhino 3d, 3dsMAX, Revit, Lumion, GIS), illustrations (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign), presentation materials (InDesign, Power Point, Word, Excel). APPROACH | Following my professional approach of perceiving the natural/urban environments as our habitats, meant to constantly accommodate our needs and demands, I consider that a good design recipe is shaped by transforming the existing conditions (problems, identity) in the best solutions of our constant urban challenges.

Urban and landscape design A professional attitude and the principles behind

“New urban movement - thinking in flux - creating adaptable urban spaces by responsible accommodating the continuous urban challenges (processes in situ) - climate adaptation, social evolution, urbanization ” “The introduction of a new mean of transportation is the opportunity of generating a new type of cityscape, a Green Railscape, a green corridor that is stitching together the natural and the urban environment, in order to create new socially, experientially rich habitats.” “The revitalization of a city consists in determining a structural urban development that is meant to relieve the pressure generated by the present urban challenges and thrive for a future balance by enhancing the potentials - resilient urban environment.”

“Creating a community hub, a new church, means an architectural and urban composition, an accumulation of social vitality that is elevated through tectonics from the bottom, the public spaces, to the top, where is relieved in an idyllic intimate garden.” “Walking into the world of fairytales, The Mirror of Dreams, is an initiatic journey that reveals the basics of perceiving our society’s values, by reflecting our daily reality through mirrors.”


PROCESSES IN SITU academic project, Master Thesis, Helsingor’s city centre , 2016

Challenging the urban design field from the way of thinking to the way of practicing, the project “Processes in situ” states for a new urban movement, as solution of the current urban challenges. This project is unfolding the existing urban potentials of our cities with the purpose of affording flexibility and continuity for the future resilient cities. “In the matter of time, the world is moving and either our conditions. Unpredictable events, such as: climate change, global warming, heavy rain events, rising sea level, technological development, society’s changes etc, are changing us, as society, as well as our urban environments. Stepping ahead from perceiving our cities as static urban structures to be perceived as living organisms, the cities need to accommodate these natural happenings, instead of trying to avoid them. Embracing this attitude, the temporal dimension of changeability is translated through processes, as a fluid substance of our existence.” Going from stability to adaptability and considering our cities to be in a continuous evolution, the mind-set of thinking in flux is raised. Cities are influenced by social (performers) and environmental (climate and the grown environment) dynamics, as continuous actions of processes in situ. Stepping further as thinking in flux, is about thinking of happenings and how these are affecting the situational aspect of everyday life. As a journey into the world of processes, the aim is stating for a new professional ground of exploring the ability of our contemporary urban structures to embrace changes over time. Embracing this approach a design guide was composed and tested through a design proposal for the city centre of Helsingør.

SUNNY DAY | The square is activated by the hustle and bustle of the urban life, each of the participants having their own stage and scope, but still being and acting together in the Church Square. Being enhanced by the design, the square is lowered and is offering spaces to stay and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere generated by the influx of water and plants.

Front side - The Church Square

RAINY DAY | Creating the square as a flexible space, where the natural processes are hosts rather than guests, the Church Square is designed to collect and clean the rain weather, fact that is enabling it to be changeable and in the same time to be entertaining for the inhabitants .

Front side - The Church Square


SATURDAY MORNING |

People inhabit the new pedestrian friendly street by activating and enjoying the new programs developed: cafes, sitting places, shops, greenery.

Back side - The Church Square

SATURDAY EVENING | Being a flexible space the street is affording diferent entertaiment activities: in the evenings, being more about different concerts and lighning shows.

Green RAILSCAPE academic project, “Urban Design� Master, Aalborg, Denmark, 2015

This project concerns the introduction of a new mode of transport through the heart of Aalborg. A light rail system is proposed to be implemented in the city network, and this mode of transport challenges the way in which we understand and perceive mobilities. Therefore, the project is coming to complete the basic scheme of having a new type of mobility, by the creation of a new urban scenery given by a Green Railscape - a green corridor which physically is meant to regenerate and strengthen the urban habitats and socially is introduced to sustainable energize the city life. The project consists in a design manual, including the theoretical framework of sustainable mobilities and ecological approaches, as well as design guidelines for the proposed light rail stretch, connecting Aalborg from east to west. The strategic principles from the manual are exemplified through a site specific pilot project for the light rail interchange at Vestby Station.

GREEN BELT Internship at West 8, Competition, Koln’s Municipality, 2016

This competition was based on the Koln Municipality’s idea of creating a green belt that can feed and, in the same time, relive the hustle and bustle of this traffic orientated city. In the past, the Municipality wanted to develop along the ring road a complex average rise residential area formed by big concrete blocks, but unfortunately for that period and fortunately for today they didn’t achieved their goals, fact that enables them today to readdress the empty areas in the extend of creating an enormous green belt that is going to surround the city. The West 8’s approach was following their intentions and in this way, we wanted to create new addresses for the existing residential areas, but also for the new development. Moreover, the first concept was to develop a unitary approach in order to fold both the landscape design of the new green belt and the urban design, as a way of creating new integrated urban neighborhoods. The underpinning principles are: folding together the cultural meaning and the neighborhood morphology with a GREEN BELT, readdressing the existing neighborhoods through creating a more sustainable and active area, creating a new green spaces system, introducing fluidity in all types of mobility.

Competition New Church, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2016

In the matter of time, the Church was perceived differently: from a religious public building to a multicultural space. Considering that the church, even since ancient times, has played a big role in giving people a sense of belonging and gathering, the religious building is framed by this main social function. Society is constantly changing and is turning become more multicultural. Current church offers various events such as: DJs, jazz, concerts and lectures. The church is often limited by its framework and can periods stand more or less empty. Therefore, the modern church should complete the picture time frame by becoming the central of social cohesion. It must be inclusive so that everyone feels welcome regardless ethnicity, color and background. The framework should be flexible and adaptable so that there is always life in the house. The church should become the community house. Moreover, the architecture is folded together by the public spaces that are created around it. The waterfront has the purpose of a public square, gathering place that is created in a direct connection with the water by the different platforms that invites people to perform, relax, enjoy, eat or sunbath. The rooftop is created as the other end of the public space, elevating in this way the whole usual horizontally urban flows in a vertical link , which is ending with a green space, modelled as urban rooms, accommodating different activities.

A House of Fairytales Competition for the Hans Christian Andersen’s Museum, Odense, Denmark, 2013

“The Mirror of Dreams” is a concept project that wishes to bring to life a museum of international importance, that will appeal both to the young and the elderly, promoting the great value of Hans Christian Andersen’s universal legacy, as one of the most influential story-tellers of all time. The project has a holistic approach, envisioning the museum itself and the public space -the future Garden of Odense-, as indivisible parts in a duality-influenced relationship. Both illustrate the famous works of the writer, with subtle mementos and allegory displays in an integrated design, named “The Mirror of Dreams”. The title refers to the fact that each and every visitor shall filter and interpret the morals within Andersen’s fairy tales, in a personal manner, in a mirrored-reflection. Moreover, the museum and the garden become that one place where the visitors reconnect with their childhood, while day-dreaming about intriguing fantasy lands. One of the key elements of the concept is creating a path within the museum that recreates the initiated journey of every major character included in Andersen’s stories. All of the chambers and spaces are built in such a manner as to reflect the teachings of the writer, real and adequate in ancient times, as well as now. Visitors enter unknowingly into a different kind of space, but exit with a new vision that highlights the most important values of our society.
