ABRUPTARHITECTURA (Bucharest 2007) was co-founded by Cristina Constantin (1980) and Cosmin Pavel (1981), in 2009 Mirela Vlăduță (1982) joined the team. Since 2015 Cristina and Cosmin are teaching within the design studios of the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture in Bucharest and Sibiu.

ABRUPTARHITECTURA does not have a credo so strong to resist things found on the way. Maybe this could be the only credo. Not to resist. Just pay attention. An architecture that does not exist per se, a respectful, understanding, gentle, storytelling, adaptable architecture. Retrieving its sense in world of being, not in a world of forms. Just being alive. Taming architecture.

ABRUPTARCHITECTURA’s work have been recognized in several architecture events, such as European Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies van der Rohe Award – shortlisted project in 2013, Challenge of the Time - Iakov Chernikhov International Prize for Young Architects – nomination in 2012, and have received the awards and nominations of various contest sections at Romanian Architecture Bienalle 2012 and Architecture Annuals organized by the Romanian Order of Architects in 2011, 2013, 2019, 2020.
