Editor’s: Tradition is the New Modernity or the Other Way Round

Post de: Stefan Ghenciulescu

It seems as if with the passing of days, we are more and more conservatives here in Romania; including about architecture. Somehow, this is understandable. On the one hand, constant destruction can bring people closer to the past than to an aggressive present; on the other, crises always cause things to fall back into place, bringing about a return to strong identity landmarks and an even stronger nostalgia for the good old, safe days.
