The urban area that is the subject of the study, is in the northern part of Bucharest. It is an area that used to be rural up to the end of the 19th century and became part of the city only after the urbanisation plan of the northern areas, when it was integrated in the “new” road system of bulevardul, which linked the city to the countryside. The regular weave of the boulevards - Bulevardul Aviatorilor, Iancu de Hunedoara and Calea Dorobantilor - defines the space where, starting from about 1985, the quarter was developed. The counterposition between these two green spaces, either public or private, and the solid structure of the buildings also leads the subject-user to considerations about temporality. The mutability of the greenery recalls the concept of transitory, meant not so much as its ontological meaning but as an aesthetic expression which communicates a condition of fleetingness, through specific expressive codes. Which aspect of our present allows picking up and modulating time, making its movement perceptible, better than nature? Then perhaps, the public greenery and the private one introduce with strength the space-time dimension, the feeling of the ephemeral in a place where, on the contrary, conveys values of substantiality, constructive solidity, balance, uniformity and individualism at the same time.
