The London Festival of Architecture, a citywide celebration of international built environment, now in its 10th year, provides the perfect setting for a showcase of the finest conservation projects in Romania.

The exhibition, which opens at the Romanian Cultural Institute's “Brâncuşi” Gallery, is accompanied by a conversation with architect Șerban Cantacuzino CBE, founder of Pro Patrimonio Foundation, businessman and philanthropist Nicolae Rațiu MBE, architect Vlad Sebastian Rusu, the author of the major restoration works at the Cultural Palace in Blaj and artist, journalist and author Jessica Douglas-Home, founder of Mihai Eminescu Trust. The panel discussion is chaired by Dr Timothy Brittain-Catlin, Reader in Architecture at the University of Kent and Deputy Chairman of the 20th Century Society.

Using a wider historical framework to explore the way in which narratives of memory inform architectural practice, the event presents, through an exhibition of documentary photography, sketches and text, the major restoration and conservation projects carried out at the Enescu House and other rehabilitation projects, managed by Pro Patrimonio Foundation in association with the Romanian Order of Architects; the Cultural Palace in Blaj, winner of this year’s EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards in the Conservation category; and the Saxon Church in Alma Vii (Transylvania), recently restored by Mihai Eminescu Trust.

Exhibition Preview and Talk: Wednesday 21 June, 7pm.  
Free. Please confirm your attendance on Eventbrite

The exhibition is open until 30 June, Monday to Friday between 10 am – 5 pm.
