Prundu Pyramid – A Romanian Mistery
In the 80’s (the last decade of Ceauşescu’s Communist regime), the Romanian engineer and biologist Marioara Godeanu started to build a futuristic project for that time: “Wastewater Treatment Plant” (WWTP), which used as a “filter” the Egyptian lily (Romanian terms: “Nufărul Egiptean” or “Lotus”), a plant that could fix sediments. The resulting biomass was used to fertilize the land of Albota (village from Argeş county). With high powerful pumps, the water reached out into big water tanks placed on top of the building. Here, the purified water flowed slowly in a complex channels labyrinth. The eccentric character was given by the shape of the building: a miniature pyramid, a model of Cheops’s Pyramid.
Stated as a WWTP station, Prundu pyramid was actually a laboratory for diverse scientific experiments: studying the pyramid effects on a variety of elements (notable is that, in some periods, the percentage of oxygen inside the building reached to 40% compared to 21% of the normal atmosphere).
For this building , Ms. Godeanu and his team have taken numerous prizes: silver medal at Genève (1992), gold medal for working on ecology research, Grand Prize at the iENA Nuremberg – International trade fair for inventions etc. The eccentric laboratory was the place where different kinds of energy were studied, with infrared detection. The energy stored in magnetic field was converted into information-energy, modifying the structure of different elements (plant physiology, their germination, water purification etc.).
The Romanian Pyramid is located at the outskirts of Piteşti, Argeş county, in Prundu village.
