Street Delivery recreates the Capital

The Carturesti Foundation and the Architects’ Order of Romania is organizing on Bucharest’s  Arthur Verona St, Friday thru Sunday the 7th Street Delivery, an event of urbanism, architecture and arts that sets out to recover the urban landscape for pedestrians and community. Given Bucharest was declared the most polluted European capital and is a city less and less loved by pedestrians, bicyclists and all traffic participants, in many of the city areas, and in the central one mostly, we are deprived of the simple pleasure of contemplation and promenade. Street Delivery, which appeared as a form of resistance, has offered since  2006 a framework for the civil society, artists, architects, musicians and plain residents so that everybody who wants to be seen and heard could offer their perception of life in the city. “The purpose of Street Delivery has been to reunify Arthur Verona St, crossing the Magheru Boulevard – beyond which the street starts actually and therefore, the Icon Garden Park would be connected via a pedestrian route that is more diverse, safer, and also an alternative to its auto counterpart, to the Cismigiu Garden,” said Architect Serban Sturdza, President of the Pro Patrimonio Foundation.
