CRITICAL REVIEW

Romanian architect with a functionalist orientation. His architecture is typically modernist, without too many decorative elements and a simple composition. The occurrence of the curved element is specific to him, and it creates a visually dynamic effect. We notice Art Deco-like influences in some of his villas.
