Romprest is the partner of Street Delivery in 2012
BUCHAREST, June 12, 2012
Between 15 and 17 June 2012 Cărtureşti Foundation and the Order of Architects of Romania organize in Bucharest on Arthur Verona street, the Street Delivery seventh edition, a planning, architecture and art event, which seeks the recovery of the urban landscape by pedestrians and the community.
Bucharest was declared in 2011, according to the Aphekom study, the most polluted European capital, being a victim of the development at the expense of the comfort and quality of life. Meanwhile, the urban landscape has deteriorated and it has been separated from the citizens, becoming only the result of official projects and the response to real estate developers, conducted in the absence of any real dialogue and any involvement of entities who can negotiate the harmonization of environmental and community right to influence the quality of the public space.
In many areas, but especially in the city center lacks coherence of pedestrian trails, the inhabitants of Bucharest being thus deprived of the simple joy of contemplation and promenade. Delivery Street emerged as a form of resistance.
"Street Delivery began with exercises related to small details: parceling, roadside, fencing, paving and gardening. Gradually, I came to the conclusion that a good neighborhood and the mutual interest could lead to the idea of cultural route. I didn’t start, as it usually happens, from a public order, but from a private initiative and from the need for a district neighborhoods aggregation. The aim was to reunite Arthur Verona Street, crossing Magheru Boulevard - because it actually begins beyond it - and thus Grădina Icoanei Park would join Cismigiu Garden. This promenade creates a different kind of relationship than usually with the city, with houses and the traffic. You can uncover opportunities and places that now we could not imagine that they would be used. There is an economic and urban comfort that you can capitalize when you accept and respect the rights of the pedestrian and the cyclist. "- Şerban Sturdza architect, President of Pro Patrimonio Foundation.
Street Delivery has been, since 2006, a framework in which civil society, artists, architects, musicians, residents and all those who want to make themselves seen and heard can provide an alternative way of living in the city. In these three days, each year, it is being created a positive projection on the potential of Bucharest, and other cities of Romania which are facing similar situations.
Street Delivery is an exercise of joy through good neighborliness" says architect Şerban Ţigănaş, president of the Order of Architects of Romania. "When it comes to this conflict, the overlap between an old street, where citizens could move between Grădina Icoanei and Athenaeum, and this avenue, which meant the upgrading of Bucharest at the time, we can say that the project is not finished yet. Street Delivery is the essence of a type of action that takes the form of regular return, an annual event, a custom resumed, but talking about things that can happen every day, anywhere, anytime, about public space and its continuity. The pedestrian is equally important as the motorists when we understand the context of mobility as a desire and a need to travel and to participate in what the city offers, which is a conglomerate of interests. Arthur Verona Street is a street like any other, but those who live or work here - the Order of Architects, Cărtureşti Bookstore and all others who have agreed to participate - have opened and launched a call for collaboration and dialogue. Every year, the Street Delivery aims to solve a neighborhood problem, as small as it would be, be it a pavement to be repaired, a fence to be restored by some craftsmen or the monuments and the square in front of the Anglican Church. There are simple things that bring quality to the urban space.”
Although Street Delivery event is intrinsically linked to cultural trail project Arthur Verona, in the time since the first edition, with the added diversity and dynamism brought by those who have joined us, a more general objective shaped: an optimistic emotional landscape and the sense of belonging. Together, we aspire to a city where people have priority and they enjoy living.
This year too, Romprest promotes the positive attitude and the civic concept of the people participating in the seventh edition of Street Delivery. As always, Romprest provides waste management services and facilities necessary for the smooth running of the event.
