I don't want more "bright colored" projects. The green/blue/yellow window shields on the building above are disgusting . Instead of ridiculous colors, if you want to make a building more beautiful, it needs more ornamentation.



For instance, this building;

I'm very familiar with the architecture of Baku, and there are no bright colored buildings there either. The flame towers are one color and it is their architectural desighn that makes them beautiful. Plus Baku is mostly "sandstone" in color yet I would not call it a boring city, so again I don't know what you mean.

What is Baku have to do with it? And Flame towers is no bright coloured? Nobody says, you need extra bright so it can cause seizure to your eyes. But what is this? Only person with vision problems can't tell Flame Towers is bright or not. End of point.



Anyhow, its your city - deal with it.

BTC Tower / Westfourth Architecture

Architects: Westfourth Architecture
Location: Bucharest, Romania
Design Team: Vlad Arsene, Cristiana Ştefan, Antoniu Craiovan, Iulian Dimitriu, Crina Popescu, Daniel Bilan, Mircea Enescu, Karoly Markos, Marinela Paşca
Structural Engineer: Britt, Popp şi Asociaţii
Envelope Consultant: Aludesign
Electrical: Conseng
Project Year: 2007
Project Area: 27,000 sqm
Photographs: Andrei Mărgulescu, Ştefan Tuchilă

At 25 stories and 110 m, the BTC tower, is presently thee tallest building in Romania.

In spite of its size, the tower does not benefit from either a large site or a surrounding plaza. The relatively small 2,500 sq m site is set on Ion Mihalache Boulevard, next to the Filantropiei Hospital and close to Piaţa Victoriei. The tower, while situated in the second plane of reference, behind Piaţa Victoriei, constitutes a dead-end perspective point for the Lascăr Catargiu Boulevard, revealing most of its height from Piaţa Romană. An illusory presence, the tower seems to diminish behind the Antipa Museum, as one approaches Piaţa Victoriei, along the boulevard. Transcending its impact on the immediate neighborhood to the larger vistas of the city, the tower establishes an urban role for this much challenged typology in Bucharest.

The requirement for large open office areas, in the context of a relatively small floor plate, determined an eccentric location of the core in the building. The core is set on the southern wall leaving the northern exposure available for most of the building. The transition from south to north along the façade is marked by the reduction of the ceramic frit density in the silk screening of the curtain wall, changing the tower’s transparency towards north. The core mass that remains exposed on the south façade is clad with dark corrugated metal panels. The tower sets back above the four-level «base» containing larger office floors. This register reflects the height of the existing buildings along the boulevard. The base’s top two levels are cantilevered over the building entry, revealing the lobby doors, set in the circular body of the tower at its contact with the ground. Above, another cantilevered volume parallels the «base» and separates the tower into lower and upper sections. The «base» is clad with alternating dark and clear glass panels. The horizontal dark glass strips that mark the office zones in the glazed areas correspond to one-meter width bands of tinted vision glass, set at eye level. The vision-glass panels above and below these strips are silk-screened. Within the floors’ structure, these panels have a ceramic coverage between 30 to 50%. The slab structure and dropped ceiling areas are covered by «shadow-boxes», having the outer glass layer patterned in the same way as the vision-glass.

Ok, I was polite but now I realize that you nothing but a troll. Those are lights. Anyone can light anything any which way they like. I was talking about the color of the materials used. If you are going to lie and mislead, this conversation is over.

This is what they look like in their natural cladding color.

Cathedral Plaza / Westfourth Architecture

Architects: Westfourth Architecture
Location: Bucharest, Romania
Design Team: Vlad Arsene, Onar Gerelioglu, Lucia Stoll, Cristiana Ştefan, Mihaela Vasilescu, Daniel Bilan
Envelope Consultant: Aludesign
Structural Engineer: Popp şi Asociaţii
Project Year: 2010
Project Area: 26,000 sqm
Photographs: Andrei Mărgulescu, Silviu Chiţu

Located on a site adjacent to the eastern wall of St. Joseph Cathedral, the building is set on the Southern third of the site in order to maintain undisturbed the view of the cathedral from Calea Victoriei, a major city thoroughfare. Both the plaza created between the tower and the cathedral and the tower itself, mark cathedral’s presence in the city. The eastern cathedral’s wall becomes the background for the new plaza, enhancing the vibrant role that the Catholic Church plays in the life of the city.

The tower’s core is placed asymmetrically towards the southern wall of the building, in order to set the office areas towards the north and the better natural light for a working environment. The structural system is composed of steel frames, braced diagonally along the perimeter walls. The north facade, towards the cathedral is clad with stone panels, while the irregular punched windows on this wall are marked by aluminum projecting frames. The southern facade features floor height glass panels and decorative vertical fins. On the west, the facade is set behind balconies which expose the vertical and diagonal steel frames.

City Gate / Westfourth Architecture

Architects: Westfourth Architecture
Location: Bucharest, Romania
Design Team: Vlad Arsene, Călin Negoescu, Onar Gerelioglu, Raluca Ionescu, Antoniu Craiovan
Envelope Consultant: Aludesign
Structural Engineer: Popp şi Asociaţii
Project Year: 2010
Project Area: 93,000 sqm
Photographs: Andrei Mărgulescu

Located at the entry in Bucharest, in “Piaţa Presei Libere” and in the axis of the Exhibition Pavilion, the Citygate complex is being constructed on one of the most prominent locations in the city.

The complex consists of two 18- storeyed towers located across from each other and creating an entry plaza to the Exhibition Complex in between. A common three level garage connects the towers under the plaza. Two three-storeyed wings are attached to each of the towers achieving larger floor plates on the lower levels of the complex.

The circulation and service cores are located in the central sections of the towers, dividing the office areas in East and West wings. These wings are rendered as distinct volumes enhancing verticality and transforming the design in a composition of four vertical elements, grouped in two buildings. Furthermore, each of the volumes is articulated in high and low rise sections clad with different glass envelopes.The horizontal articulation between these high and low rise volumes varies in each of the four vertical sections.

The relation emphasized in the project, between towers on one hand, and between building wings and sections on the other, recall the concept of duality inferred by the image of «gate».

World’s most powerful laser to be built in Bucharest with EUR 180 mln EU financing

Daily News, Entertainment | Liam Lever | September 19, 2012 11:53 am

The European Commission has agreed EUR 180 million in funds for a new nuclear physics research center to be sited in Romania. Included in the plans is the most powerful laser ever made, which will be housed in a facility in Măgurele (in picture, artist’s impression), a few kilometers south of Bucharest.

“The Extreme Light Infrastructure Nuclear Physics Facility (ELI-NP) will generate laser pulses with up to 10 petawatts (1016 watts) of power,” reads an article published by scientific journal Nature. The laser will allow scientists to study the structure of atoms in greater detail than ever before. “It will allow us to do a new sort of nuclear physics that hasn’t been possible so far,” said project leader Nicolae-Victor Zamfir, director-general of the Horia Hulubei National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering in Măgurele, quoted by Nature. He went on to explain that the laser will be powerful enough disrupt the extremely strong forces between particles in the nuclei of atoms.

According to Nature, 40 research institutions from 13 EU member states have been involved in the planning of the new hi-tech center. “We have very high hopes for the ELI-NP project. Through it, Romania has a chance to put itself firmly on the map of European research, to retain highly-specialized workers – reversing the ‘brain drain’ and attracting new companies to the region,” said Commissioner for Regional Policy Johannes Hahn after the EUR 180 million in funding was agreed yesterday (September 18 ).

The total cost of the facility is just under EUR 356 million and EU structural funds for Romania are to be used for the project. Romania’s cutting edge nuclear physics research facility should be up and running by 2017.

Construction will start next year and should be ready by end 2014.
