Nicolae Ceausescu's neo-stalinist regime has achieved architectural notoriety by forbidding any sort of individual initiative, instead building huge compounds and erasing whole swathes of the historical city centers. These urban and peri-urban areas - poor neighborhoods, unbuilt zones within apartment block ensembles, former slums and villages on the urban periphery - have become the hunting grounds for the private dream home. These new buildings never seek to connect to the place, clearly asserting their autonomy. Aesthetically, such houses are difficult to classify. It is not bland Western-style suburbia, but bulky buildings ranging from the expanded American model, through small châteaux to neo-classical perversions. Sometimes a building will exhibit genuine architectural qualities. This house proudly presents its neo-modernist vocabulary. A carefully composed structure of planes, masses and voids, it achieves a kind of monumentality through the emphasis on its spatial elements.

Opinions are divided across the communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu
