Round towers Art Deco apartment house

Round towers Art Deco style apartment house dating from the late 1930s, Spain Square, Bucharest (Valentin Mandache)

The building above is located in an area of Bucharest developed in the late 1920s and throughout the 1930s, full of interesting Neo-Romanian, Art Deco and Modernist style buildings and street furnishing. This particular edifice is placed on an quite sharp angle street corner. I like the aesthetical architectural solution found by the inter-war designer in the form of a symmetrical façade flanked by tower-like structures, one of which (the right hand side one) wonderfully solves, through its circular profile, the design problem posed by the more unusual street corner.
