"Constantin Brancusi" International Centre - interactive tourist centre.
The Brancusi Cultural Center will offer its visitors a unique experience; they will know better the work of the famous Romanian modernist sculptor, Constantin Brancusi. While the main part of the center was recently built in the basement, the whole experience will be accentuated by the glass structure designed to be built on the surface.
The glass cube will have an elevation of 12 m and will be supported by glass poles of equal height and its roof will be supported by beams. Inside the cube, there will be some glass panels arranged in an ovoid shape. These panels will be cut in such a way that inside the ovoid there is an empty space, which will take the form of the famous work by Brancusi called "Pasare Maiastra". The entry into the ovoid takes place from below.
The complexity of the structure is also increased by the fact that it should also support the internal glass element, which has an ovoid shape. On the other hand, the glass cube must also be made in such a way as to comply with various performance criteria, envisioned by the designer.
