Academia de Studii Economice din Bucureşti. Scurt istoric

  • Subiect: „The topic of this article is the building at No. 6 in Piaţa Romană, in Sector 1 of Bucharest, an establishment of the Academy of Economic Studies. The edifice is categorized as a historic monument, having the code B-II-m-B-19597. The preoccupation to establish economic studies in the United Principalities goes back to mid 19th century, while the necessity to found a practice-oriented Academy became stringent around early 20th century. In 1913 the Academy of High Commercial and Industrial Studies (Academia de Înalte Studii Comerciale şi Industriale – AISCI) was created, and, as early as the beginning, the need to built its own establishment was felt. In 1924, the Administrative Board approved the start of the construction work and the contract with the architects Grigore Cerchez, Edmond van Saanen-Algy and A. Culina, so that, on November 15, 1926, the establishment of the Academy could be inaugurated. At that time, the establishment comprised two wings: the main wing and the wing of the amphitheatres. In 1934-1935 the main wing was enlarged with a new building, its architect being A. Culina. In the 1970s, the two establishments in Calea Dorobanţi were built, the head of project being arch. Cleopatra Alifanti. The edifice of the Academy of Economic Studies is representative of the edifices for higher studies that were constructed in late 19th century and early 20th century. A special component with regard to appearance and technical execution is the Wing of the Amphitheatres. While the main wing (arch. Gr. Cerchez) iterates elements of volumetry, decoration and adaptation to the front used for large official buildings that are placed in representative areas of the city (e.g. the BCR establishment in Piaţa Universităţii), for the wing of the amphitheatres, Edmond van Saanen- Algy used a modernist architecture, with large openings, with structure elements that also play an aesthetic role.”
