The Danube in Braila
"Braila laboratory" is the name of a just started cultural project from EEA grants at the "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urbanism. It is in a row of continuing efforts on promoting Braila as city at the Danube, as Romania actively takes part in the European Danube strategy. Recently concluded doctoral thesises, such as that of the chief architect of Braila, reinforce the practice relationship of research. Previous projects included the Italy-led consortium "Eau comme patrimoine" (Water as heritage) which featured the Po delta, Coimbra and Lille, also at the "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urbanism. Also, the university was active in developing the landscape plan for Braila (Cerasella Craciun in the book Earthquake Hazard Impact and Urban Planning, Springer, 2014).
