gh lazar attic conversion

award at 2008 bucharest biennal

All the main elements are salvaged: the windows in the partition walls, the stoves, the doors, even some additional structural beams, they were all collected along the years from houses under demolition or so-called "rehabilitation". None was bought from antique shops, just salvaged from junk yard. It is a nostalgic approach, quite awkward in a city where heritage monuments  are torn apart over night. In this respect it is a manifesto against what is happening today in Bucharest. award of the president at the bucharest architecture biennial 2008, nominee at the bucharest annual.
