The Comunist Experiment

Blocks of flats built around 1960. A kind of urban collective buildings for workers that were never specific to Romania; rejected by their inhabitants, with no man's interstitial land, those blocks represent one of the most bitter lessons of life. The urbanism of these areas of the city, a nightmare of Le Corbusier's "La Ville Radieuse" show but very well the conclusion this great architect arrived at the end of his life: "La vie a raison, l'architecture a tort." (life is right, architecture is wrong).
