Brâncușis Măiastra in twelve-meter-high glass cube

Craiova Art Museum honors sculptor with impressive glass art

When works of art from a sculptor are exhibited underground they need an even stronger above-ground anchor point. This is the idea that led to the creation of the twelve-meter-high cube above the new „Brâncuși Museum“ in Craiova, which is dedicated to the work of the great Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși. The imposing all-glass construction is a tribute to the artist that is visible from afar. With glass panes that are the full height of the building (sedak) the shell is just as impressive as the filigree interior, also made from glass, which is designed to look sculptural and is based on a typical Brâncuși work – the mythical bird Măiastra.
