From 25th to 29th of May 2005, architects, urbanists, sociologists, artists, students and cultural producers will investigate, negotiate and research that particular shift from modernism to postmodernism in historic/ contemporary Bucharest urban conditions through workshops, public screenings, lectures and symposion.
When an architectural style is mimiced on a large scale in Romania, is a particular European urbanism the result? Did Bofills influence create a critical regionalism obscured by block-ideology? How were these architectures perceived then in the eighties in Bucarest; what do they mean today to the people living there? What will be the impact on future urbanism in Bucharest?
