A few steps away from University Square, behind a little square with a fountain lies the building of the School of Architecture. Grigore Cherchez conceived this building in 1912 and it took five years to complete it. By circling the building you'll notice that it is a hybrid. The old wing (which is the one designed by Cherchez), in Brancovenesc style, is a mixture of Eastern and Renaissance motifs, with richly ornated pillars and carvings. This building was dedicated to Ion Mincu, which is considered to be one of the greatest Romanian architects. The new parts of the building are in a modern, cold style.

Well was impossible to not mention this building since i studied here...what u guys want??

I like visiting universities when I travel. In the old ones, you usually get to see some nice architecture for free! Plus there's usually bulletin boards for local events.
