Cosmic Multicultural Bucharest in the Pandemic (429):
Another Foray into the Past

I saw three generations of buildings.
I started with the City Gates, created after 1990 in a Western artistic style of non-art.
Fortunately, between the two towers I saw the building of the National Exhibition, created in the 1960s with a semi-oval dome by an architect who had been a great rugby player … so that building seems to represent a sunset or a sunrise.
Right opposite is the current Media Palace, created in the 1950s in Soviet style, but which includes traditional Romanian solar symbols.
Almost a kilometer away is one of the most representative Neo-Romanian style buildings, Villa Minovici, created in the 1900s, with some solar floral symbols.
In the end,
a deep reverence
for the Sun, then I let him
choose his preference.
