ÜberRaum Architects have recently restored the facade of The Romanian Cultural Institute in London. The completion of the work was celebrated with an impressive multi-media art performance where a film was projected onto the façade of the 160-year old building at 1 Belgrave Square. Created by Bucharest-based visual artist Ion Cotenescu (VJ Cote), the performance paid homage to the history of the building and the characters who have lived there over the years.
