BAS teacher Cristian Stefanescu (a-works) has contributed research material and 2 projects to this year’s Romanian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Titled Fading Borders, the curatorial project by Poster Architects brings into light the complex relationship of Migration and the City represented by two main parts inside of the pavilion: (Away by Teleleu) a journalistic survey of the lives of Romanian migrants within various local European communities and (Shrinking Cities in Romania by IDEILAGRAM) the interconnected shift in architecture and urbanism within six Romanian cities greatly affected by this phenomena. The contribution is anchored by work carried out at BAS with students and teachers in the master course Braila Laboratory (2015) and the subsequent publication This Place is Pretty Good: Spatial Engagement with Braila’s Latency.
