Maria Bostenaru Dan


A case investigated in detail was of the architect Virginia Haret, the first woman architect in the world. After obtaining a diploma in Bucharest, it spent a period of residence in Italy, where she worked with architects and archaeologists of the time. The influence of neo-classical architecture of the Italian Novecento remains not seen in the works of architect, maybe just in the Povernei Street extension, now demolished. In the early years she had built in Neo-Romanian style, moving then to Modernism.
