Alexandra-Elena Burtea

My name is Alexandra-Elena Burtea. I am a year 4 architecture student at the Mincu University of Architecture and Design, Bucharest, Romania. The career that I’ve chosen and share with my colleagues holds great value to me, both in a professional and personal field. I believe this profession to be imperative in the development and growth of our world, and being the engine of this constant change brings me satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment.

1. Please introduce yourself in a personal and professional way.
My name is Alexandra Burtea, I'm an architect student, year 4 at the Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism in Bucharest. I've always been a competitive person. Being able to participate in contests has given me the architectural freedom to design and create in the manner which I believe to be most valuable.

2. What is your design philosophy?
Humility is the foundation of good architecture. In the pursuit of doing great, many fail to do good. In a world that is ever-evolving, architecture should be the leading example of change as the first tool against harmful environmental, social and political factors. Our age of design should focus on becoming cleaner, sustainable, and more flexible.

3. Can you briefly explain your understanding of the topic and the source of ideas?
Our ideas and inspiration came out of an unusual corner, while we brainstormed our options, we realized that what comes naturally, rarely gets the appreciation it should receive. In our design, we wanted to reflect on daily experiences such as smell, light, shadow, reflections, and so much more. To be a part of the design. We discussed a high traffic crossroad, where a lot of different cultural lifestyles meet. We wanted to transform this everyday experience and give it meaning and a face of its own. Translating into this design. Using the experience it gives, we utilized it to create a more efficient and transparent design to allow the crossroads to be traversed in a more timely and organized manner.

4. When and how you were first introduced to architecture?
Before I went to architecture school, I had no knowledge of it whatsoever, yet the decision to join became one of the best decisions of my life. I found a way of expressing and utilizing my skills and insights to create designs that have the capability of shaping a better world, a brighter future. Architecture has proven to me that if you give your heart and passion to it, the rewards are extremely satisfactory: contributing to life and society itself.

5. What does architecture mean to you?
To me, this profession holds the power to create and reflect on cultures history, and future at the same time. The control and effect it has had on human progress, the effect it has had on our way of living is fundamental and irreversible. As an architecture practitioner, I often find myself stunned by the impact we have and have had on the world. I pride myself on being part of this world-building creative process.
