Street Delivery 2013 – Bucharest

© - Bucharest 2013

Every year in June, Arthur Verona Street in Bucharest is being closed to motor traffic and becomes a place exclusively for pedestrians and cyclists.

The event represents a project of  Cărtureşti Foundation and the Order of Architects of Romania for a better Bucharest so that people living here could enjoy the city heritage, the quality of architecture, their streets for promenade and the special landscape.

During this urban event, there will be implemented projects from different categories. Through urban planning, design and landscape projects, people are invited to contribute with creative ideas regarding public space (from street furniture to urban chaos or the brutal demolition of traditional areas and green spaces). Other projects will deal with issues of heritage, environment and urban development, because it is thought that the interaction between the modernization and old or natural surroundings is complex and the inhabitants must involve for their city to evolve 🙂

Of course, there will be plenty of other projects: visual arts, music (several concerts) and films (Verona Garden will become an outdoor cinema), theater, dance, other performances and activities for children (leisure activities in the Icon’s Garden/Park).

Striving for recovering the public space and for the urban development according to the needs of its citizens, Street Delivery 2013 is the 8th edition taking place in the Romanian capital. At the same time, the event will take place in Timişoara (7th edition) and for the 1st time in Iaşi. In Bucharest, from 14th to 16th of June, Street Delivery will mainly take place on Arthur Verona Street, right in the center of the Romanian urbanism.
