"The exhibit offers a chronological survey of Romanian architecture from 1870s to 1948 with a focus on the Royalties' contribution to the modernization of the country and creation of a national style. It was at the beginning of the 20th century that the capital Bucharest was called "The Little Paris", due to the French influence. After WWI, King Ferdinand and Queen Mary sponsored the implementation of the national style in their effort to put Romania on the map of the world. The exhibit identifies Queen Mary's contribution to Romanian architecture landmarks as well as her visit to Seattle. The exhibit, is authored by three major architecture professors: Augustin Ioan, Marius Marcu Lapadat, and Ionel Stoicescu, in collaboration with CREART, Bucharest. The UW Ellison Center for Russian, Eastern European and Central Asian Studies is sponsoring the event." (Promo Copy)
