“Architecture is inhabited sculpture.” – Constantin Brâncuși
What are the forms, highlights, influences and doctrines that have shaped Romanian architecture in the 20th century? Urbanist Radu Pervolovici (Meta Cultural Foundation, Bucharest) and professor Shona McArthur Kallestrup (University of St Andrews) join London-based architect Adrian Petrenco for an overview of 100 years of architectural creativity, starting with 1918 - the year of Romanian unification - to the present day. The conversation is complemented by an exhibition of photography illustrating the stylistic diversity of Romania’s built patrimony and the political, cultural and social contexts that have influenced it during a troubled century.
The event is part of RCI London’s programme celebrating the Centenary of united Romania (1918-2018).
Exhibition Preview & Talk: Wednesday 13 June, 7pm. The exhibition is open until 26 June, Monday to Friday between 10 am – 5 pm
