The project

The Brancusi Cultural Center will offer its visitors a unique experience; they will learn more about the work of the famous Romanian modernist sculptor, Constantin Brancusi. While the main part of the center was recently built in the basement, the whole experience will be accentuated by the glass structure designed to be realized on the surface.

The glass cube will have an elevation of 12 m and will be supported by glass poles of equal height and its roof will be supported by beams. Inside the cube, there will be glass panels arranged in ovoid form. These panels will be cut in such a way that there is an empty space inside the ovoid, which will have the shape of Brancusi’s famous work called “Pasare Maiastra”. The entrance to the ovoid is made from below.

The complexity of the structure is also increased by the fact that it should also support the inner element of glass, which has the ovoid shape. On the other hand, the glass cube must also be designed in such a way as to comply with various performance criteria laid down by the designer.
