Interwar architecture with reinforced concrete structure exposed to multihazard in European context

Intervention in the Romanian and Italian context

By Maria Bostenaru Dan

The theme of this book is between the response to environmental hazards - such as earthquakes of housing (of the so-called "other Modernism") - over issues of conservation of historical materials, as a kind of sustainable urban development which includes inhabitants' participation. It is important to preserve memory, and this book uses the knowledge of art, a multimedia installation, and the role of photography as an example of virtual witness. It includes a dialogue about traditional earthquake resistant natural materials with modern construction in order to learn lessons about retrofitting. (Series: Architecture / Architektur - Vol. 11)
