✔Bucharest's architecture is a mixture between classical and modernist styles! The city is surrounded by buildings built in five main architectural styles: the Brancovian style, the Neo-romanian style, the Art Nouveau, the Art Deco and the Communist era style. The modern landscape of Bucharest combines all of these styles and at first sight it seems really disorganised. But if you stay for a little bit longer here you start to get used with it and actually enjoy it! 🏛 . ✅Архитектура Бухареста - смесь между классическим и модернистским стилями! В городе полно домов построенных в пяти разных стилях: стиль брынковяну, нео-румынском, модерне, арт-деко и коммунистическом стиле. Современный Бухарест, на первый взгляд, выглядит безалаберно, но если пожить здесь подольше то можно привыкнуть и даже наслаждаться таким видом! 🍷 . #bucharest #architecture #bucharestarchitecture #beautifulplace #cityofarts #romania🇹🇩 #traveller #travelromania #travelbucharest #romanianphotographer #history #brancoveanustyle #neoromanianstyle #artnouveau #artdeco #communistera #modernlandscape 🛰 .

Case study. “Communist economy is a state of recession permanent crisis. There was no shortage of unofficial products, almost all the merchandise was regulared and as soon as it appeared in the warehouse it immediately disappeared. Under these circumstances there was no sense of advertising, so the symbols functioned differently than in the western country.” “共產主義經濟是一場經濟衰退的永久性危機。 當時不存在任何非國營企業產品,幾乎所有的商品銷售都是被預先計畫好,貨一到倉庫就會立即消失了。 在這種情況下也就沒有使用廣告去鼓勵消費的必要,所以這些符號與標誌在西方國家的功能不同。“ (Patrick Hardziej & Rene Wawrzkiewicz, 2017, Preface section, ¶ 10). #polishdesign #logodesign #symboltologo #graphicdesign #grafikakomputerowa #polski #communistera #patrykhardziej #renewawrzkiewicz

Monday morning down memorylane. Daily basket in communist era Romania. Tea, Pepsi, milk, facecream and a pair of leggings (?) 😅 ... I remember going with my grandma to the local "supermarket" and using one of these baskets. Shelves were mostly empty, though, and there was a quota system in place in the 80's. . @ 100 years of Romanian Advertising expo @ Palatul Universul . .

Instead of the normal sights in Zagreb, I went to an abandoned hospital on the outskirts of town. It was worth committing a felony. #abondoned #communistera #urbanexploration #croatia #me #lifecouldbeworse #europe2018 #quarterlifecrisis #brutalistarchitecture #thatwasarealniceclambake

With the older #communistera buildings in central #bucharest the devil is in the detail. They're all different, mostly ratty and tired, and to most eyes ugly, but it's like people sneaked in small design details or #architectural styles, hence the amount of faux #artdeco. In this case it was the fine #bronzed staircase window and roof line that caught my eye. #architecture #archdaily

A little ratty #communistera gem I found down a dead end on my wander this morning. Strangely the brown window frames and the curved section reminded me of the awesome #georgebarnsley #cornishworks #derp, even though that was Victorian era! Not quite sure was going on with the weird innerspace behind the concrete lattice work! #bucharest #architecture

So, here's the bomb: communism in Albania. I just want to warn you first that everything I'm going to mention here is what I heard from locals, and sometimes is not historically accurate. In 1941 the Communist loyalist liberated the country from Italian Fascist invasion. The leader name was Enver Hoxha and it became an official dictadorship three years later, when he took total power. - First it had relations only with Yugulasvia, but soon Hoxha said its socialism wasn´t the pure one. After, it allied itself to URSS, but in the 1960s he said that Stalilism wasn't pure either. It then allied with China, but, guess what? It wasn't pure enought for Hoxha either. Therefore, the country completely isolated itself. - During communist era, everyone had a work, but not everyone had something to do. It's said that communist regime hired 4 or 5 people to do the work of one, so it wouldn't have unemployment rate. - No moving was legal. If you are from one city, you stay there. If you try to escape the country and the government learn it, your whole family, until 3rd degree, will face punishments. When the borders were open in 1990s, many Albanians ran away. It contributed to the fact that nowadays there are more Albanians living outside Albania than in its borders - 6 millions expats x 3 million in land. - Everyone was received an amount of food per month. All levels of education were (and still are) for free. Health system was also universal and free. - No private cars were allowed. Exactly, you couldn't buy a car until the 1990s. People joke that this is why Albanians are such bad drivers - they've driven for less than 30 years now. - There was one government channel of TV and radio, but people that lived in ther borders were able to catch the waves from Italian and Greek radios; this partially explains why these are the second and third languages most spoken in the country. - It was the first atheist country in the world and all religion were abolished - many mosques and churches were destroyed or used for something else.

"Perhaps Eastern Europe’s most tongue-in-cheek Communist-era construction is at Romania’s Vidraru Dam, where a 10m statue of Prometheus (the man who stole fire from the gods) commemorates one of the Communist Bloc’s biggest hydroelectricity projects."

Whilst there's plenty of #communistera #concrete in #bucharest, when I'd done some searching for #brutalist buildings the #tehnoimport build was one that stood out. Not sure I'd characterise it as #brutal_architecture, but you still can't beat some quality #cylindrical #socialistmodernism. Apparently the red marking at its bottom is to indicate that come another #earthquake it might fall down! #romania #architecture
