The Architecture of Bucharest, 1920-1940

The return to Romania of avant-garde intellectuals from abroad during the 1920s stimulated radical changes that permeated and transformed Romanian society. During the 1930s Romania's cultural, technical, and artistic achievements rivaled those of Western Europe and in some respects surpassed them. This is the first book in English to reveal the extent to which modern architecture flourished in Romania—and is still visible as a neglected and almost forgotten past amid the contradictions of present-day Bucharest.
