The exhibition "A City's beauty" travels to Bucharest from 18 May to 2 July, on the occasion of the opening to the general public of the first cultural season of Casa Mița Biciclista Stabiliment Creativ, organised by ARCEN.
Is it the city’s site, morphology, buildings, gardens, materials, or surfaces? Its residents, fragilities, hospitality, environments, or measure? How is the urban esthetic defined? Is it based on the projects and constraints of each passing century? And what forms would go with the climate transition?
The timing of this exhibition couldn’t be more relevant as the esthetics of the French capital are being questioned by the municipality and a new manifesto recently released, the government is upgrading urban regulations, and Parisians are now stating their willingness to participate in these discussions. Just after the beginning of the second lockdown (in the fall of 2020), Pavillon de l’Arsenal gathered more than fifty architects, artists, curators, historians, landscape designers, philosophers, sociologists, and urban planners… in order to discuss what makes Paris beautiful.
