|CONSTANTIN GOAGEA – Architect, Magazine Director, Urban ‘Visionary’
An architect and director of Arhitectura Magazine (Bucharest), he is leading an effort to turn a 120 year old industrial site – home to the Wolf Company – into a museum of urban Bucharest history. It is hard to believe that such an ‘old- industry’ site, that today makes high security safes, could still exist in so beautiful a setting astride Carol Park (see aerial photo and click to enlarge).

Located across from the Filaret Bus depot (onetime train station), the factory’s old buildings are being stripped of their machinery and made ready for possible restoration.
The original Wolf factory, highly advanced for its time, produced steel beams for the Cernavoda Bridge in the 1880s. It remained a steel and metal producing factory until the present.
Goagea’s is proposing to turn the site into a museum, restaurant, conference center with direct access to the park currently obstructed by moss-covered high walls.
