Our intention is to build a building or two, with residential destination, with an art gallery on the ground floor, public, where contemporary Romanian artists to exhibit for free and try together with the City Hall, the Ministry of Transport and the University of Architecture “Ion Mincu” to we revitalize this area, by creating within the Royal Station the Museum of Bucharest Architecture and the reconversion of the esplanade of the Royal Station. Thus, an important museum pole is created in Bucharest, a pole that can also be found in the area of the Royal Palace.
