Palms on Balconies – A visual study of contemporary houses…

Info

…from Romania built for representation

Since the revolution in 1989, Romania has seen a big wave of houses built for representative purposes, so-called palaces. These buildings challenge in many ways societal and administrative norms, and are built by a diverse range of people. Mostly commonly associated with these buildings are people of Roma origin, nevertheless a more widespread audience partakes in this building culture.

Seen from a social perspective, the work aims to broaden the previously limited research with a more differentiated approach. Through exchange with a substantial range of protagonists, and by working with visual ethnography, the project therefore seeks to produce typological images that inquire how social status is established through architecture.

Romanian Palace Research: Typologic primer

Info

Investigation on the typology of representative mansions built in Romania. 50 houses in two towns were therefore taken into consideration with Google Street View. Next to Certeze, in north-romania, where mostly romanian construction workers come from and built their concrete dreams, the second one was Buzescu, a town mostly with a high population of Roma and well-known for their estate. By doing so, the project strives to question the exoticized perception of the often Roma-only ascribed phenomenon. Ongoing project, MA Visual Communication, ZHdK.
