The 10 best videos for 2017 – Historic Houses of Romania

I have shot over 150 video podcasts throughout 2017, in both English and Romanian, on a multitude of themes related to the architectural history of Romania and Southeast Europe. For me it represents the start of an activity direction, which I would like to culminate, funding and interest from the public permitting, in the production of documentary films on architectural history subjects. Here are what I consider as the best 10 such videos for that period, in English. I am curious if you have a favourite one from this list or from the other videos realised yesteryear (find them according to their publication date, on the Video Reports page)? Please send your views using the comments section of this post.

1. Walking like a Saxon

2. What is the Little Paris style”

3. The architecture of the Muslim community of Romania

4. Ceausescu’s architectural imagination

5. Traces of WWII bombing in Bucharest

6. The kitsch statue of King Carol I

7. Manichaean symbolism in Neo-Romanian style houses

8. From the tower of Deutsch Weisskirch/ Viscri church

9. In front of the former Nazi embassy, Bucharest

10. My first architectural photography exhibition


My aim, through this series of blog articles, is to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania and Southeast Europe, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of world’s architectural history and heritage.


If you have a historic house project in Romania or other country in Southeast Europe, I would be delighted to advise you in aspects pertaining to its architectural history and ways to preserve as much as possible from its period fabric and aesthetics in the course of restoration or renovation works, or to counsel you with specialist consultancy work related to that project. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this website.
