The Story

In Bucharest, contrasts can be found everywhere: in architecture, people, attitudes, public spaces, all of these contributing to its identity. This year’s event theme, MEDS Bucharest – “City of Contrasts”, was born from these issues of the city. The challenge is to analyze, study and interact with these contrasting aspects of Bucharest. The main concept of the workshop is to experiment with several types of construction methods, from digital planning to the final result, through teamwork, sharing different skills, knowledge and experiences.

The City

Bucharest’s urban landscape is defined by contrasts, through its inappropriate juxtapositions, lack of rules and striking differences. Throughout time, palaces and mansions have been built amid slums. Then, residential blocks appeared in the villas neighborhoods. Old churches were hidden by blocks during communist times. One of the largest building in the world, named “the People’s Palace”, was built over and after an entire inhabited neighborhood was demolished.
