Transylvania Cultural Center / Ioana Mihaela Agachi, Octav S. Olanescu, Anamaria C. Popa & Vlad S. Rusu
Ioana Mihaela Agachi, Octav S. Olanescu, Anamaria C. Popa and Vlad S. Rusu shared with us their first prize entry for the Transylvania Cultural Center. The competition was initiated by the Cluj-Napoca’s city administration to determine the best solution for the design theme for a new Cultural Center which is based on the city’s Cultural Developement Strategy. The new Cultural Center was designed to host a new Philharmonic Hall, offices, restaurants, spaces for performing artists, a building for restoration facilities and different exhibition spaces. More images and their description after the break.
The proposed extension to the Central University Library by EXHIBIT Architectura in Cluj Napoca, Romania is an exercise in the design of a contemporary civic, monumental structure among historic, and grandiose institutional buildings. The proposal is an extension, as well as a link between the existing library storehouse and the new building, while creating an outdoor room, or plaza, between the two structures.
More on this project after the break.
