Work:

Architecture Diploma and Master at theUniversity of Architecture and Urbanism Ion Mincu Bucharest, Romania - 2012 Sheffield University, UK 2008-2009 (ERASMUS) Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes , Paris - 2011 Juan Pedro Donaire Arquitectos, Sevilla, Spain - 2010 AIKO Architecten & Ingenieurs, Maldegem, Belgium - 2009 Histria Archeological site, Romania - 2009, 2010 Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes - September 2012 - February 2014 During my employment as an architect at Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes in Paris. I had the opportunity in that time to work in various stages of projects.

Competitions

Smaller teams - grater responsibility. Fast working rithm. Reliable team member. By taking part in competition teams, II aimed to get as much involved in the projects I was working for and therefore familiarized with various architectural programmes : exhibition centre Wien-HOERBIGER, bridges HelsinkiKRUUNUSILLAT, schools: Boulogne‐Billancourt, Evry, housing : Asnieres Logements, swimming pool: St Germain‐en‐Laye, Réhabilitions , hippodrome Maroc_Centre Hippique and office building Lyon-Cogedim. I was given the responsibility of being in charge or a competition for the Cite Universitaire de Paris. The brief included the urban planning and paysagist rethinking of the park and a new strategy for coordinating the new housing projects.

Building Permit and Urban planning

Dusing the first three months at the agency I worked on the file for the building permit for Aulnay Sous Bois Ilot K housing project. I was in the same time in charge of working on the plans for the developpers and I participated in meetings. This helped improve my understanding of the housing requirements in France and of the administrative part of filing for a building permit. The same project I was involved in preparing the plans of reglementations for the Urban Development of the wider project area, Mitry Princet

Phase APS Veolia Phase PRO and detailed plans Montreuil centre ville execution

One of the things I appreciated in working at Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes was the high quality of execution and architectural detail in the final project. Working on a more advanced phases of the projects for Veolia Aubervilliers Offices and Caf Strasbourg Offices I took part in elaborating details and I was part of a larger working team and more complex projects . As a intern in the same company I worked on Montreuil Centre Ville while still under construction, on the execution phase. By returning to the agency after one year I saw the same project finished.

Studies and dissertation topics:

As a student in Sheffield I wrote my dissertation on Social Housing: Park Hill and Cartierul Catelu, an analysis of two collective living complexes from UK and Romania. I demonstrated the ability to adjust and successfully developed team projects such as urban analysis and design workshops. Together with the team we won a One Day architectural design competition organised by the university. My diploma project was on a subject I became interested in since my erasmus studies: The Restructuration of the places under the Mancunian Way Elevated motorway in Manchester. I am especially interested in viewing architecture as a social activator and as support for activities and behaviour.

Interests

High school education –intensive informatics and mathematics + english at IC Bratianu known for academic performance -> competitive env. I participated to competitions of math and chemistry. In the same time started art school (studied painting, had a personal exhibition during highschool at the House of culture in Pitesti). Became interested in architecture, started preparing for exam for Ion Mincu University, fond of hand drawing as expression of arch which I am still. From my first years of study I stood out as the best student in school being awarded a diploma and prize of excellency in my 2nd year of education and a Bursary for academic performance offered by the Order of Architects in Romanian in 2010. This academic performance lead to having the first choice for the Erasmus scholarship in my 3rd year of university and studied at Sheffield University in Uk, ranked 3rd school of arch in UK. Also had 1st choice for internship at Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes 5th year. 2010

Context Kruunusillat is a traffic connection currently being designed between Kruununhaka and Kruunuvuorenranta in Helsinki, the capital city of Finland. Kruununhaka is an existing city district located on the eastern side of Helsinki’s city centre; Kruunuvuorenranta is a residential area currently being designed three kilometres further to the east, behind the Kruunuvuorenselkä sea area. Behind the design of the bridge connection is the City of Helsinki’s strategic programme aiming at the development of the traffic system with sustainable transport modes based primarily on rail traffic. The main users of Kruunusillat will be trams, cyclists and pedestrians. The purpose of the competition is to find in every respect a high-quality solution for an environment extremely demanding from the landscape and culturalhistorical perspectives. Kruunusillat shall have a positive effect on Helsinki’s image and shall be a worthy legacy for future generations.

HELSINKY BRIDGE A thin line crosses over the water, suspended by cables and achieves a maximum of transparency and lightness through a state of the art confirmed wide span structure. The bridge is creating a promenade for cyclists and pedestrians. The paths are set all along the two sides of the bridges. The protections are made of prestressed net in order to increase transparency and their railing is made of a specially extruded aluminium which integrates light for pedestrians and cyclists. By night the lights in the handrails underline the geometry of the bridge. The central space is lit indirectly by spots integrated in the lower deck. A homogenous light is reflected form the white steel surface above. The white pylons are illuminated by spots and mark the crossing at night.

A Suspended Plaza Over The Sea

The West Section

The new bridge is more than a link between two destinations. It offers a plaza in the middle of the crossing, inviting to have a break and contemplate the landscape. The suspended platform is protected from rain and sun by the upper bridge deck. Temporary installations and attractive events can take place there enriching the experience of the crossing. A specific tram stop is installed on the bridge next to the side-ramps leading from the upper deck to the plaza.

The western bridges are simple deck bridges carrying 60 meters offshore and 20 meters on land. The open section of the bridges over land allows reducing the overall height and street crossing underneath. It assures easy accessibility for maintenance.

The East Section The second section of the bridge achieves a maximum of transparency and lightness through a state of the art confirmed wide span structure suspended by cables. The impact on the water is minimized by proposing one slim pylon in the water, smoothly shaped by elegant curves. The side pylons are founded on the landslides. Their typical form announces the entrance to the main bridge.

AULNAY SOUS BOIS Urban Planning Le projet Secteur Princet est situé globalement au coeur d’une zone d’aménagement dénommée Mitry-Princet. Cette intervention urbaine a pour objectif la requalification de l’axe le long de la rue Jules Princet et la rue de Mitry. L’opération comprend la création de 18 îlots pour la réalisation d’immeubles de logements libres en accession ou en location, et le requalification des espaces actuellemet occupés par un tissu « relâché » à dominante pavillonnaire avec quelques activités commerciales notamment dédiés à l’automobile. La zone est marqué par une poly-centralité urbaine et un éparpillement de ses fonctions.

Les parcs qui se trouvent dans le périmètre d’intervention feront l’objet d’un réaménagement. Le parc dénommé « de la Roseraie » est une pièce structurante du projet, qui permet de connecter l’ensemble d’espaces verts du secteur. Le principe d’implantation des volumes a pour objectif de créer un équilibre entre le construit et le végétal qui doit être mis en valeur par chaque opérateur. Les nouveaux bâtiments expriment une écriture architecturale contemporaine. Le traitement des façades est conçu en fonction de l’espace sur lequel elles s’ouvrent, et de leur exposition. Les matériaux nobles sont à privilégier: le béton, le bois, la pierre naturelle et le métal.

Orientation

Amplantation d’ ilot H

Les logements à partir de trois pièces ont un double orientation, ils sont des appartements traversants ou d’angle.

L’ilot K configure la limite du parc de la Roseraie vers la rue Jules Princet. La disposition des bâtiments permet de créer un nouvel accès au parc et une connexion visuelle en continuité avec le parc des Cygnes par une séquence de percées qui ouvre le coeur d’ilot. L’implantation des bâtiments crée au nord d’ilot un nouvel accès au parc. Cette continuité des espaces verts publics et privés est essentielle pour la compréhension du réseau de déplacements doux proposé par le projet d’aménagement.

Loggias Les angles de deux immeubles comportent une loggia qui assure une meilleure luminosité des espaces contigus.

Le lot est composé de deux immeubles indépendants, R + 3 + attique, comportant au total 94 logements, sur un niveau de sous-sol destiné au parc de stationnement. Les accès se font par deux porches traversants et centraux par rapport à chaque bâtiment. Chaque porche desserve deux halls d’accès, un par cage d’escalier.

Configuration Intérieure Les logements comprend des cuisines en façade sans réduire la surface des séjours, afin de bénéficier de lumière et ventilation. Les sanitaires et circulations sont placees a’l’interrieur.

Les Facades Le corps principal de 3 étages, se détache du socle en béton brut par un matériel différent: l’enduit blanc. Afin de couper l’effet de barre, la facade est interrompue par des retraits, loggias et balcons, qui permettent une lecture verticale et donnent un rythme. Les fonds des retraits sont en bardage en bois vertical. L’attique est en retrait aux niveaux R+4 et dispose des terrasses accessibles. Les menuiseries en façades sont en bois. L’occultation se fait par des volets roulants. Pour les fenêtres simples sont prevus des volets coulissants extérieurs en acier thermolaqué.

LYON BUREAUX Situé sur Vaulx-en-Velin et Villeurbanne, le Carré de Soie est l’empreinte d’une ancienne cité industrielle marquée par le développement de diverses entreprises au XXème siècle. Ce patrimoine emblématique confère à ce lieu une identité atypique à étayer et sa positon en lisière de Lyon en fait un atout majeur pour le développement de l’agglomération. Dans le cadre du renouvellement de ce site, la ZAC Villeurbanne La Soie repose sur la volonté de faire du Carré de Soie un vrai quartier de ville. Accueillir de nouveaux habitants, créer des espaces de loisirs, des commerces tout en faisant naître des lieux de travail qui font la réputation et le dynamisme économique de la ville sont les objectifs majeurs du projet. Ces lignes directrices conduisent à la production d’un système urbain et paysager durable qui valorise le patrimoine et les ressources dont il hérite. C’est dans ce contexte que s’insère le nouvel immeuble tertiaire COGEDIM. Situé entre la rue de la Soie et la rue Decomberousse, l’îlot H bénéficie d’un emplacement privilégié en proue sur l’Esplanade de l’Union. 13

Terrasses - jardin Les dimensions généreuses des jardins intérieurs permettent de maximiser les apports en lumière naturelle et la ventilation naturelle des plateaux. Toutes les terrases sont accessibles et créent des lieux communs aux utilisations variées: terrasse, belvédère ou espace planté. Ils gardent une relation avec la ville via des cadrages sur le bâti environnant. Les différences de niveaux entre les patios contribuent à la qualité des vues.

Bureaux

A la charnière entre deux contextes très différenciés, l’ implantation du batiment représente l’opportunité d’édifier une « pièce urbaine » et de proposer des profondeurs visuelles variées depuis les espaces de bureaux : vues lointaines et dégagées au sud, cadrage sur la ville et le tissu faubourien de l’Amande au nord. Par sa position, sa volumétrie, son épaisseur et sa variation de hauteur, le futur immeuble représente un enjeu essentiel pour le paysage urbain du Carré de Soie.

Les espaces des bureaux sont répartis en cinq lots d’environ 350 m² par étages. La volumétrie exprime les fonctionnement interne, chaque lot constituant un volume bien délimité. Les cinq unites sont desservis par deux colonnes de circulations verticales situées en périphérie. Elles libèrent un maximum de surface pour les bureaux et permettent leur ulilisation indépendente. Chaque noyau possède une double escalier Chambord éclairée naturel et exprimée en facade.

Mezanine Un restaurant d’entreprise accessible pour l’ensemble du personnel ainsi qu’une grande salle de réunion modulable prennent place en mezzanine. Une passerelle suspendue relie les noyaux de desserte et permet un accès aisé à ces lieux tout en contribuant au dynamisme du hall.

RDC De part, sa transparence et ses fonctions, le RDC est forme un tout avec l’espace public qui l’entoure. Il accueille des commerces ainsi que des espaces de restauration qui participent à l’animation de son environnement. L’entrée du bâtiment se fait par un hall traversant accessible depuis les deux rues piétonnes. Le hall profite d’une lumière naturelle et permet de rejoindre la cafétéria d’entreprises. Il s’installe en continuité de l’espace urbain.

Parking En infrastructure, deux niveaux de parking proposent 189 places de stationnements et sont accessibles par une rampe située sur la voie est-ouest en façade nord du bâtiment. 14

L’aménagement du solarium est proposé en continuité du jardin anglais du Château-Vieux. Son dessin s’inspire de la géométrie de cette partie et complète la composition de l’ensemble.

Il est envisagé de rénover la piscine en plusieurs phases qui permet des fermetures très restreintes afin de maintenir l’offre d’activités le plus possibls

Un accès vertical de chaque côté du nouveau accueil permet de canaliser le flux des utilisateurs : visiteurs et baigneurs individuels d’un côté, groupes et salle de musculation et de gymnastique de l’autre.

SAINT GERMAIN EN LAYE SWIMMING POOL Située entre la forêt de Saint-Germain-en-Laye et les jardins du Château-Vieux de Le Notre, cette piscine olympique constitue l’un des plus beaux équipements des années 70 en région parisienne. Sa mise à niveau en ce qui concerne les exigences d’hygiène, d’accessibilité et d’économie d’énergie permettra de retrouver un équipement moderne de qualité en réponse aux attentes contemporaines. L’orientation du site, l’implantation actuelle des réseaux routiers et le positionnement des transports en commun nous ont incité à positionner l’entrée principale au sud, plutôt qu’en lisière de forêt. Dans la continuité du dispositif de parc instauré par Le Notre, une nouvelle séquence d’entrée permet de découvrir le projet progressivement tout en dévoilant des percées visuelles sur le solarium.

L’aménagement du solarium s’inspire de la géométrie du jardin anglais du Château-Vieux. Les zones différenciees sont: : zone calme et de repos, zone familiale, aire de jeu avec un terrain de Beach volleyball, un espace pétanque et des tables de tennis de table au nord de la piscine a l’ombre et a distance des autres espaces.

La nouvelle disposition de l’entree offre l’opportunité de créer un parvis généreux et agréable qui est situé en contrebas de l’aire de stationnement et qui profite d’un ensoleillement direct en cohérence avec le site qui l’entoure. Des terrasses successives en gradins reprennent la topographie. Une rampe latérale permet l’accessibilité. Ce nouvel espace publique constitue un lieu de rencontre et d’attentes des groupes et des familles. Un auvent vitré courbe invite à se diriger vers l’entrée.

La banque d’accueil et les accesses verticals sont situes face à l’entrée. Directement sous l’espace accueil, à l’emplacement de l’ancien bar, la salle de musculation s’ouvre sur la piscine. Sa façade se termine en courbe à l’image des cercles de la coupole.

Les vestiaires sont groupés au deuxième sous-sol. La marche vers l’avant est respectée entre l’accès et les bassins. L’utilisateur passe par la zone de déchaussage, le couloir extérieur des vestiaires, les cabines de change, la zone avec les cabines, et par les douches et sanitaires aux premier sous-sol (accessibles par un escalier et un ascenseur de chaque côté ).


Mancunian Way Manchester Pedestrian circulations are not encouraged under the motorway: The space underneath is dangerous and unused. The street itself gives little joy in wandering along its sideways. “Beware, mugglers operate here” signs, lack of direction signs and poorly lit passages make the underpasses less likely to be used. The project is introducing uses at different hours and proposes the refurbishment of the underpasses by using lighting and eliminatig corners to increase visibility.

Mancunian Way Manchester Due to its protective green belt the Mancunian way has potential as a green corridor. The existing parks are to be refurbished by introducing new support for activities: open air cinemas, places for picnics, concerts, playgrounds or sports.

Mancunian Way Manchester From East to West when walking under the Mancunian Way you would find “the redbricks” community, grows its own vegetables , the Hulme neighbourhood, First Street new development commercial area, the university campus, the campus sports area and the Ardwick artist neighbourhood. By defining neighbouring influences I divided the longest elevated portion of the Mancunian Way into five segments fostering context related uses: A cinema, a vegetable market, an university club, a sport zone and a recording studio

MANCUNIAN WAY DIPLOMA PROJECT

George Mitrach

PT1

The Mancunian Way elevated motorway was built in the 1940’s to enable the traffic between Manchester’s industrial area and the quays. Since the decay of the industry it was preserved as part of the inner city ring and the main short circuiting east-west route.

PT1

PT1

The Mancunian Way is an element of contradictions: It is a physical and psychological barrier between the city and its southern neighbourhoods, Hulme and Ardwick, It tears a break inside The University Campus, and it creates dangerous and unused spaces underneath. Simultaneously it is an iconic construction for Manchester towards which people manifest interest to preserve and appropriate. The project proposes activating the residual areas underneath the Mancunian Way and giving them back to the community. By defining neighbouring influences the longest elevated portion of the Mancunian Way is divided into 4 nodes, 3 segments and 2 ends. The nodes are the requalification of the existing crossings (3 green areas and Oxford Road level crossing). The segments are a farmer’s market, a university student centre and an open sports area. The ends are two signal interventions: a recording studio and a cinema. The overall attempt was to give a purpose to the unused areas right beneath the motorway without making any invasive change to the structure itself.

Manchester future developments, the green and the Knowledge corridor


Before and after The areas under the motorway are different in function and form and require unique approaches: “The Redbricks” community, sustainably grows its own vegetables. The high rise student residences have no connection to the street level. The University buildings turn their back on the Mancunian way, no doors, no public space. The central university parking is set under the widest sector of the motorway. The university sport facilities include a football fives pitch under the road. The passage to Ardwick artist community is inhabited by hip-hoppers, free runners and graffiti artists. The project takes all these aspects and turns them into user oriented proposals with the purpose of gathering people into making use of a space that is unused: a film screening area for the local community bringing light and life to the passage, a Farmer’s Market for prosper small developers in Redbricks and throughout Manchester, a club and a two level more efficient parking for the students, an extra sports zone which reunites university athletes with free runners and skaters,a recording studio and gig location for young Ardwick talents.

Redbricks Farmer’s Market A community from Hulme which calls itself “The Redbricks” after the houses it inhabits, grows its own vegetables and live a sustainable life right next to the concrete motorway. On the other side of the motorway a new commercial axis emerges: First Street. A segment of the project under Mancunian Way between the two hosts a Farmer’s Market for small developers from Redbricks and not only. It completes the commercial sector of first street with a market type of commerce.

The Proposal The building is organised on two levels and it fosters an underground connection with the two adjacent parks. The market level is suspended from the street level to isolate from noise and pollution. The ground level serves as parking and delivery area and it mediates the connection with the two parks through the two ends of the building which inhabit the entire height beneath the motorway.

ANALYSIS OF ACTIVITIES IN TIME

THE CITY URBAN FABRIC

The analysis is focused on the relationship between activity and time of day/ week. The results of the analysis show the predicted flow of people in the surrounding area of our site based on facilities that are open during specific hours. This lead to several conclusions. If Plaza de Espana is used intensely throughout the day, the access between the Museum Plaza and PLAZA J SANCHEZ CONTES is interrupted during museum closing hours. This can make the museum square an end and not an intermediate point on a route. The restaurants and bars that open in PLAZA J SANCHEZ CONTES could sustain a permanent use of the place, but its location further from the intersection with the commercial axis makes the flow of people lower. Our response to these observations is to integrate the site into the dynamic circuit of urban actors also by providing a new base for temporary activities that could fill the gaps in space use and time.

The existent city centre has the potential to form a network of public spaces creating an activity core element in the middle of the historical centre. Thus the area may become permeable. Instead of seeking a linear connection between the plazas object to our study , our interpretation of the site is that it can transform into an urban catalyst of activity spreading radially towards the cinema, commercial street and other nearby facilities. Our strategy is to view the church as an object in the centre of this public space, not as a frontage to an existing plaza. In this configuration of space the existing Plaza De Espana and the new plaza form a single entity surrounding the church. The fountain becomes the articulation between the two. The created plaza should incorporate two atmospheres: around the church, it subordinates to it by keeping simple features. The other atmosphere is generated by “enclosure”’ of the plaza, forming a more protected space. This sense increases when you approach gardens of the residential part of the project.


EUROPAN - DON BENITO PUBLIC PLAZA Don Benito covers 56,292 hectares, the fifth largest municipality in the Badajoz province. Its economy is based on farming, the manufacturing industry applied to agricultural products and a large tertiary sector, the third biggest business area in Extremadura. In recent years, Don Benito has been significantly re‐equipped with new public facilities distributed evenly through the city. This concentration of businesses into the centre means that there is a lack of this type of activity in the periphery and a large influx of residents to the centre. The historic core, which contains the competition study area, has a network of narrow streets with a complex layout. The site is a void in the urban fabric in the town centre, next to Santiago Apostle Church and close to the main shopping street. The aim is to rezone the entire block around the church by: ‐creating a public square that decouples the rear of the Santiago Apostle church from the current adjacent building, ‐ incorporating the adjacent classified building into this city space , possibly building an underground public car park, ‐ adding public facilities, generating a new frontage for the resulting square and covering the rear sections of the existing constructions in order to shape a quality space that acts as a sponge for the urban fabric.

The new urban platform accommodates seasonal and daily change. Shading systems enable the permanent use of the outdoor plaza in the sunny period of the day. SHADING THE PUBLIC SPACE

CHURCH AS A DOMINANT

The facades of the plaza maintain a lower skyline in order to mark the church as a dominant element.

Creating a new vantage point at a different level allows the space to orient back towards the church. An elevated promenade will provide both Shading and NEW viewpoints.

The interior facade is homogeneous: it puts into evidence the church as a dominant element and creates a better sense of enclosure. Exterior facades integrate in the city by inheriting the traditional sizes of plots, the heights and the materials.

The public space extends to the ground floor and the first level of the buildings surrounding the plaza. An exterior access is provided for the first level through a wooden terrace linking the two levels through a ramp. The same construction serves as a shading device and creates a vantage point.

Behind the homogeneous facade lie fresh shaded gardens of the housing accessible from the first floor. Here the public platform detaches from the building and forms a horizontal bris soleil for the south facade of the commercial ground floor.

The widest sequence of the platform becomes a secondary plaza shadowing the ground floor during the day. A second level of interior public space opens towards the platform.

USE OF SPACE IN TIME, SHIFTING ACTIVITIES BETWEEN THE 4 PLAZAS, PROPOSAL FOR NEW USES IN PLAZA D’ESPANA The diagram shows the usage of Plaza J Sanchez Cortes, Plaza Del Museo and Plaza de Espana on a daily time scale. Our proposal aims to enforce and fill the time/space gaps in existent uses. We aim to reinforce the use throughout the entire time cycle by adding complementary functions, such as the ones that sustain the rhythm of the space at night. The enclosed part of the plaza has the potential to host such a variety activities.

Open air cinema: Use of temporary screens and wooden amphitheater structure. The same segment of the plaza is transformed into a descending amphitheater in open air. The lighting of the plaza is made at the paving level. The church is distanced from the finishing ground material of the floor by a light stripe.

The Merry Cemetery from the village of Sapanta, Romania is famous for its colourful tombstones that describe in paintings and rhymes the persons buried. Instead of focusing on the tragedy of someone’s death the cemetery expresses the beauty of the individuals’ life. This attitude is said to derive from the local ancient Dacian culture. It is told that the Dacians used to cry when a baby was born and be happy when someone died, as they anticipated a better life after death next to Zalmoxis, their god. The idea of death viewed in an optimistic and detached way was highly inspiring.

EVOLO 2011 CLOSER TO HEAVEN, THE SKY HIGH CEMETERY The modern world is experiencing an aggressive affirmation of the individual. We are valuing more the image of youth than the wisdom of old age, and so we are avoiding to accept our mortality. In this period of diminished spirituality and lack of belief in afterlife, people become more preoccupied of the conservation of their human remains. Burial ceremonies are diverse, but the concept of burial grounds has rarely been questioned. The physicality of death is in search of a new image and place. This task is not easy in an era of migration, multi- ethnicity and demographic dynamism. The traditional skyscraper is an icon of the consumerist society that is now in crisis. However the idea of vertical development remains a contemporary theme as a response to demographic growth. The Sky High Cemetery is an attempt to explore and fundamental rethink the horizontal cemetery concept, no longer efficient due to insufficient and expensive sites inside the city. The cemetery becomes a sustainable architectural program, releasing the ground, as a direct answer to urban density. Both generic and specific, the tower will grow organically with the city it is built in, becoming in a symbolic way its’ physical genealogical tree.

43


The elevator The elevators work using a internal GPS system. In order to reach the desired tomb, a person has to input the name of the deceased on the control panel of the elevator. Intertwining tubes of glass with a parametric metal structure make the almost immaterial body of the cemetery. The structure becomes infrastructure. The tombs are attached at different points on the tubes, resulting in diverse typologies with different atmospheres.

The family tomb It accommodates an entire family. The oldest member of the family can order the tombs for the other younger members. Pictures, stories and other information about the family can be accessed from small touchscreen panels placed next to the graves. The larger entry space in front of the row of tombs could be used for the reunion of the living family.

The cremation tomb Is a continuous oval space with a perimetral cremation wall, and zenithal natural lighting.

The VIP tomb Represents the burial place of a famous person. It will display a large area to accommodate a big number of visitors. Information about the person will be available from the virtual archive, on a screen next to the actual grave. Small conferences or tribute shows could be held inside.

The tomb for individuals It will accommodate persons of any ethnicity and religion. It is formed from a larger space which has up to 5 graves attached on the outside. On top of the tombs, small gardens could be arranged, as light enters in the central space from the upper part of the perimetral tombs. The central space in this case is the given entity and the peripheral elements are each added when a new tomb is needed.

Public floors

Mall

The ground level is entirely public. The ground is liberated of graves, the space is given back to the city. The first floors of the tower will be given to the use of the living, representing an articulation between the city and the cemetery by various uses: museum, offices, shops. The skyline becomes the limit between the profane and the sacred. Gallery Following the example of the medieval catholic town, where the cathedral square was the heart of the town, the cemetery would reenter the city centre, catalysing people in public space.

Chapel

GABROVENI INN RECONVERSION BUCHAREST, LIPSCANI OLD CENTRE The building is situated in the old central area of Bucharest and is considered to be of great importance to the historical heritage of the city. However it is not abandoned and is found in a poor state. Moreover there is an unbuilt site on one side of the building itself. The concept was to restore the identity and the physical concept of the building, which is the local commercial inn, a place organised around an interior open patio with commercial use on the sides. The building will become a new point of interest for the entire old area being situated in a central position. It will incorporate new uses such as a gallery, library and art centre, museum and commercial spaces. The facade follows the fragmented skyline line of the context but creates contrast.

2010 - proposal

48


Following the character of the entire old centre of Bucharest, the corniche line is vibrated and forms an irregular profile. The height of the buildings that were later demolished is lower than the one of the remaining Gabroveni Inn.

The present condition of the building is a critical. Due to low maintenance and the passage of time the state of the site shows a deserted construction ready to collapse at any moment. This is a sad situation considering that the building represents a valuable heritage site in the old centre of Bucharest. Moreover, the area surrounding one side of the building is now demolished showing the side of a contemporary construction.

he proposal is to reintegrate the Gabroveni building into its context by reconstructing one side of the site keeping in mind the original geometry of facades.

1850 - Borocczyn plan

Building typology: two wings boarding a passage

On the Borocczyn map made in 1850 one can notice the original occupation of the nearby site as well as the facade of the building as it was first designed.

One wing of the existent building collapsed. The intervention tries to restore its integrity and value the remaining original parts. A sense of history gives identity and when talking about identity the scale and importance become complementary: the historical centre gives identity to the city while singular buildings give value to the historical area. The site not only talks about a such building, Hanul Gabroveni but also about its conflicted relation with the surroundings and the unbuilt forgotten environment that swallows it.
