Cristian Ionescu * status: executed 2005 High continuum - A flat site in the Otopeni area, without constrictions, imposes a challenge. A beneficiary opened to the experiment completes the whole of data of a special exercise. A normal terrain and normal theme solicitations lead, thus, to a “diagonal` decision. The stationary rectangular parallelepiped of the sky-light’s force introduces a revealing axis of the high east-west descender like an initiatory axis following the ladder access in a succession of lifting, of “conquering` the hights. The balance of the triangular areas is an antagonistic balance, but sufficiently to itself as a geometrical place. The sky-light, decomposed in other triangles, ensures the relation of the different slopes of the same “reality`. The space, fluent, is developed on two levels. The details connected to the defining of the fire spot as focalizing place interior-exterior bring to the composition a new center, added to the main trajectory. (Cristina Olga Gociman) The space congruent to the shape – a bet that the architect has won, in this special case, revealing the interiors through large glasses, multi-guided. In front of the idea of total space, the tectonic redraws in folds in their turn “eaten` by light. 30 Although, planimetrically, the building is a strong demonstration of interaction of perfect shapes (triangles that slide one besides the other), from the point of view of its amenity, it convinces by its superior transparency – both on the side (the tough, strong walls are dissimulated), and on the outside (the power of the empty spaces and their clarity prevails).
