Radio Romania building – Fascist architecture in Stalinist times

A brief about the building hosting Radio Romania, the national broadcasting station in that country, which is a Mussolinian/ Italian Fascist era design, but built at the height of Stalinism in that part of the world, in 1952. It shows through this architectural example that there is a convergence of ideas and forms between those two ideologically messianic dictatorships, and that the architects serving one of those regimes can find employment in the new dictatorship.

I endeavour through this series of periodic articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.
