The other
map

Intro

For an outsider, the places we are talking about are rather difficult,or even quite impossible to find. During recent years different kinds of places have arisen in the neighbourhood situated south of the city centre – from spaces for cultural events or the maker movement, production workshops for social design, contemporary art centres and a radio broadcasting station to a large natural urban delta to be protected. The current phenomenon represented by all these initiatives and places, should eventually turn the “bad” part of the city into an appealing one, a place to be, a cool destination. We are researching and mapping these energy points. A “Map of the Other Bucharest” will show the spots which are building up urban change and becoming an artwork in itself.
