Apartamentul /Infobox pentru Bucuresti
photo documentation, 2006
This infobox represents the place where the memory of the city is activated through different initiatives and projects. The need to link our present, our memory with the recent past led us to the idea of such a place. For some reason this infobox was not built in the nineties, immediately after the fall of communism. In 2006 the conditions have changed because of the new construction market which focuses especially on the city spaces left unconstructed, areas were demolitions took place in the 80es under the communist regime.
We collaborated with the architects Dan Dinoiu and Alex Pop and decided that the shape of such a space should be an interpretation of the living unit /apartment of the block of flats, as a reference to the most common habitat in romanian cities.
The result of our collaboration was a model and an architecture project which was showed under the frame of the project Va Urma to the people living in Rahova (a critical area of the city exposed now to new demolitions) and in Galeria Noua to the intellectual and artistic community.
The next steps were showing it to the city officials and trying to find a place and funding to construct it. This Apartment/Infobox should be a place for documenting our past on one side, but also to act like a small kunsthalle in which new projects would be produced.
