Mihai Eminescu National College
On September 1st 1926, Mihai Eminescu National College opened on the site of the former No. 31 Pimary School in Floreasca. It consisted of two volumes: the old manorial house, a larger building dating from 1860, and a smaller construction, dating from the first half of the 18th century. Up until 1958, Mihai Eminescu high school had maintained its old site and status from before the educational reform as a boys’ school. At the end of the 17th century, as part of the systematization plan of the city, the area where the high school was located was also demolished. In 1982, the old site and appendage were demolished while keeping the more recent building as a base for the new one to be built.
The much larger volume of the building stood out in its urban context, and soon became a landmark. The high school exists in relation to the city and the local community which demanded its construction.
We consider the high school to be a pastiche, as the building follows the style of the housing blocks constructed in the ‘80s in Bucharest, without having any aesthetic value.
The layout of the high school consists of three volumes pointing in cardinal directions. The main body is South oriented, while the other two face East and West, respectively, both having hallways towards the inner courtyard. Classrooms are rectangular and are situated along a hallway.
