The Drapers Bastion / Point 4 Space


Brasov is one of the Transylvanian cities built in the Middle Ages by German (Saxon) colonists. Most of its fortifications were demolished to make way for massive development in the 19th and the 20th centuries. In the last ten years the city council has commenced a programme of gradual restoration and conversion of the remaining walls, towers and bastions. The Drapers Bastion, converted by Point 4 architects, is part of this fortification system. Having been abandoned for such a long time, fragile elements — copings, sentinel walks and staircases — had vanished completely, leaving just the heavy circular wall — via ArchDaily
