Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden are guest countries at the fourth edition of Romanian Design Week. 

"Can parking lots be turned into buildable plots?", "Can abandoned industrial sites be converted to vibrant city districts?", "What does architecture for bees look like?", "How do we increase public awareness in urban planning processes and how do we get commuters to choose the bike over the car?" – all these questions are to take "A Turn for the Better" by resorting to five Nordic proposals for liveable cities created by architects, city planners and urban activists in the Scandinavian countries, presented in an exhibition hosted by RDW 2016.

The exhibition is organized with the support of the Embassies of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden in Romania and with the financial assistance of the Nordic Culture Fund, consists of the following contributions:

Super Cycle Highway project signed by Dissing +Weitling architects (Denmark),
Dream Hotel project by Uusi Kaupunki Collective and Studio Puisto (Finland),
• "2.5 x 5 meters” project by Krads Architects (Iceland),
By-Bi, urban beekeepers project (Norway),
• "The People’s Port" project  of The city of Helsingborg (Sweden).
"The problems our cities are facing tend to be global. In «A Turn for the Better» we present five proposals from the Nordic countries for how these problems can be solved locally leading to more liveable cities for us all. We hope that the exhibition will inspire to a fruitful conversation between architects and planners from the Nordic countries and their Romanian counterparts as well as the general public attending Romanian Design Week", say Daniel Golling and Gustaf Kjellin of the independent architecture and design initiative Summit, the curators of the Nordic exhibition.
"We chose this topic along with the curators of the exhibiton because both The Institute team and our partners ING Bank and Bucharest 1st District City Hall are interested in starting a debate, from the fact that Romanian Design Week will be hosted by Piața Amzei, around whether Bucharest knows or not how to accelerate its way into modernization, using its own dowry that is still locked in her own chest", says Andrei Gavrilă-Borțun, CEO The Institute.

The authors of the projects from the Nordic countries will further detail their initiative during a conference on Sunday, May 22nd, 2016, from 12 p.m. , at The Institute Café.

The Nordic Culture Fund works to support an innovative and dynamic artistic and cultural scene in the Nordic Region, one that is diverse, accessible and of high quality.

Established in 1966, based on an agreement between all of the Nordic countries, the Fund contributes to positive artistic and cultural development in the Nordic Region by promoting co-operation between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland. It does so by gathering knowledge and information, building networks and providing financial support.
