  Palatele ţigăneşti. Arhitectură şi cultură

    Abstract

    “The gypsy palace”, as a certain type of architectural object in Romania is called, has developed over the last 15 years and has gained more and more interest due to its peculiar style, which is different from other architectural style in Romania. It is identified with an ethnic group that only recently has embraced sedentary life. In a first stage forms and colors turn the attention to the phenomenon, but, as one starts to go deeply into it, the aspects of cultural identity become more important. It becomes clear that only an interdisciplinary analysis can offer reasoning beyond the prejudices born out of a supposed cultural superiority, which in the 15 year of transition has been hardly proven.
