“Inspired by Constantin Brancusi’s „miracle” sculpture, the building rises naturally from the ground through golden spirals (the fibonacci spirals) and crystallizes in a shape that, just like its muse, tries to set itself free from „the past burdens”, striving to rise high. Its shape offers the visitor a feeling of aspiration, an aspiration not only of the building, but of life itself.” – Claudiu Ionescu – architect
The building represents Romania’s first permanent digital museum. Inside visitors can explore any museum of the world through the use of the latest technology in 3d video projections, 3d screens, touchscreens and so on. A big advantage is that the museum can host any presentation, exhibition or vernissage and that the visitors can effectively inform themselves about the environment, local traditions and history without the need of a very large expositional space, a big surveillance staff or substantial maintenance costs.
Located near the mures floodplain natural park, an environmentally protected area, the building has a very strong eco-friendly character. This fact is due to the buildings installations that do not pollute the environment and a green roof that brings back a bigger “slice of nature” that the one that was removed because of the construction of the building. This green roof also offers the visitors a 360 panorama of the surrounding beauties that the mures floodplain natural park has to offer. Another key environmental concept was included in the design and it has to do with the n-s orientation of the building that, together with the pavement that surrounds it, forms a solar sun dial. Practically, the shadow of the building marks the exact time on the concrete pavement without using any other energy besides the sun shine.
The building is situated in Pecica, a very old community with a rich history and many well-kept traditions. The most famous is bread making and it’s considered to this day Pecica’s local brand. Visitors can now observe the art of bread making because of the 250yo model of the local bread oven present in this museum. The Pecica bread was highly appreciated even by Nicolae Ceausescu, the communist Romanian dictator that had a bread shipped to him by plane every Saturday.
The structure of the building consists of reinforced concrete walls that are all tilted inwards or outwards. The Pecica region is an active seismic zone, so a 7,5m long cantilever, on 2 outward 15 degrees tilted walls, supporting over them a green roof was no easy task for the structural engineers.
The building was completed in 5 months’ time, is already part of the community and has become an icon for the locals.
受Constantin Brancusi的“奇迹”雕塑的启发，建筑通过金色的螺旋(斐波那契螺旋) 自然地从地面升起，结晶成一个形状，就像它的缪斯女神一样，试图把自己从“过去 的负担”中解放出来，努力上升到高处。它的形状给参观者一种渴望的感觉，不仅是 对建筑的渴望，也是对生活本身的渴望。——克劳迪亚斯-建筑师
该建筑是罗马尼亚第一个永久性的数字博物馆。在里面，游客可以通过使用最新的3d 视频投影、3d屏幕、触摸屏等技术来探索世界上的任何一座博物馆。一个很大的优势 是，博物馆可以举办任何展览，展览或vernissage，游客可以有效地了解环境，当地 的传统和历史，而不需要一个非常大的展览空间，一个大的监测人员或大量的维护费 用。
该建筑位于环境保护区内的mures洪泛区自然公园附近，具有很强的生态友好性。这一 事实是由于建筑设施不污染环境和绿色屋顶带回了更大的“自然的一部分”，因为建 筑的建设被拆除。这个绿色屋顶也为游客提供了mures洪泛区自然公园360度全景的美 景。另一个关键的环境概念被包含在设计中，它与建筑的n-s方向有关，与围绕它的人 行道一起，形成了一个太阳能日晷。实际上，建筑的影子在混凝土路面上准确地标记 了时间，除了阳光之外，不使用任何其他能源。
该建筑位于Pecica，一个有着悠久历史和许多保存完好的传统的古老社区。其中最有 名的是面包制作，至今仍被认为是Pecica的本土品牌。游客现在可以观察面包制作的 艺术，因为在这个博物馆里有250年代的当地面包烤箱模型。即使是共产主义的罗马尼 亚独裁者尼古拉·齐奥塞斯库(Nicolae Ceausescu)也非常欣赏这种Pecica面包，他每 周六都会坐飞机把面包送到他那里。
建筑物的结构是由向内或向外倾斜的钢筋混凝土墙组成的。Pecica地区是一个活跃的 地震带，所以一个7.5米长的悬臂，在两个向外15度倾斜的墙壁上，支撑起一个绿色屋 顶对结构工程师来说不是一件容易的事情。
