Project for a subway entrance.

Izvor metro station is situated between Splaiul Dambovitei and Izvor Park, on the axis of the bridge that crosses the river. Bulandra Theater, Gheorghe Lazar Highschool, and the Palace of Parliament are located nearby, so a considerable flow of passengers is feeding station.

The aim of the proposed project is not only to provide an access to the subway for travelers, but to be a place of gathering where events can take place. The building is at the same time a gateway to the park.
The technological architectural language, perfectly suitable for its utilitarian purpose, contrasts with the green vegetation of the adjacent public park.

The interior is characterized by fluent spaces that communicate on different levels, all being covered by a glass roof held in place by three steel beams.
