Bucharest today is the result of more than thirty years of urban planning under communist power, just as it is of the 90s and 2000s interventions which undoubtedly impacted the economy, society and urban policies of the city. Through the photo manipulation process that the series went through, Multilateral  proposes The Absurd as an efficient analytical instrument in approaching this problematic space, situated in permanent transition and anarchic and accelerated architectural transformation. The project also follows delicate relationships, such as the one between private space and public space or that between individuality and the gregarious.
