Bucharest Art Deco Style Gate

I am back from my tropical insect bite allergy travails and thought to restart the Romania historic architecture postings with a cheerful photograph of a well proportioned Art Deco pattern encountered in the design of a mid-1930s block of flats gate in central Bucharest. I like the enduring modernity and fine quality of this design, which speaks volumes about the creative atmosphere existent in this city before the terrible cataclysms of the fascist dictatorship, the Second World War and the communist takeover.

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