Marius Călin, chief architect at X Architecture & Engineering, spoke to Capital magazine about urban regeneration, the art of living, architectural vision and high-end projects.
“Even if it does not look like, architecture is always transformative, hence the difficulty of stabilizing its mobility through a firm construction. If we put forward the concept of a "perfect house," we should recognize and seek its future adaptability against the tempting, but transgressing sense of the stated purpose”, the well-known architect beautifully states.
The award-winning, innovative, design-oriented and full services leading architectural designer has also mentioned his most important on-going projects:
“We have several buildings in various construction phases, such as One Herastrau Plaza and One Mircea Eliade / future One Floreasca City. The multifunctional project that we build in Floreasca is the first real estate development in the last 30 years integrating vertical housing, offices, and commerce. I recently completed the One Herastrau Park complex. We want every building in our portfolio to encourage hurried inhabitants to live their city today.”
