The project argues that post-war modernist residential neighborhoods such as those built during the communist regime in Bucharest, are valuable resources in need of design interventions meant to unlock their potential. 'Static Urbanism' is an urban strategy and a design framework for transforming these residential neighborhoods. The main design technique of delaminating the gridded facades, challenges the traditional boundaries of urban space, shaping a 'static' space for people to slow down from their routine and reconnect with their surrounding space and community.
