An example of improper renovation of a Neo-Romanian style house: the old ceramic tile roof together with its peculiar roof ornaments and finials have been replaced with characterless corrugated metal sheets, which seal the loft off, not allowing the building to breathe and further damaging it. Bucharest, Opera area. (©Valentin Mandache)

I endeavor through this daily image series to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural heritage.
