Str Ion Câmpineanu 28, Bucharest, City Center / Sector 1
Muntenia, Romania

The ensemble is among the first, if not the first, modern architecture ensemble built in the city center of Bucharest after the Second World War. Until this construction, there were not big modern interventions in the city center, new constructions were built outside city center on virgin lands. The identified functions between 1960 and 1989 were political (all Communist Party congresses were held here), cultural (movies, concerts, theater, etc.), leisure (park), housing (apartment buildings) and commercial (the ground floor of the appartment buildings; the tower apartment building had also commercial spaces at the mezzanine level). Today, all functions are still in place, the difference is that the political one is no more the main function.
