According to Donato Chiarini, the chief of European Commission representative in Romania, TUB project is the result from the partnership of a public initiative and a local authority to offer solutions for the critical problems of urban management and regeneration.
Mario Kuibus, the coordinating architect of TUB project explained that TUB refers to restructuring and changing the configuration of some central streets with no car access, for creating coherent ways for pedestrians and bicycles.
The project targets in a first stage the area located between Piata Romana and George Cosbuc street. The architects envision the project as a city brand, with a clear identification within the city infrastructure and some leisure areas named “rooms” which could host cultural and social events, according to Kuibus.
TUB has been selected for the International Architecture Biennale to take place in London next year.
