1918 – 1944 was the period of time that displayed the largest variety of orientations and stylistic explorations, a time when Bucharest went through an intense constructions activity. Once the modernist international style spread through Europe it was largely adopted in Bucharest as well. Modernist apartment-blocks started to appear next to neo-Romanian houses. In this context the city went through different phases: from decorative archaeology to the deep meanings of traditional architecture, entire streets or areas were built in this predominant architectural style.
The exhibition “Inter-war Architecture in Bucharest” is a visual journey, a meeting with the most important creations of architects Ion Mincu, Marcel Iancu, Horia Creangă, Duiliu Marcu, Petre Antonescu, George Matei Cantacuzino, Octav Doicescu.
