RIVER SOMES | 6th Architecture Triennale

Exhibition on the River Somes regeneration project in Cluj-Napoca

17 November - 30 December

Opening: 5pm-9pm

The River Somes project is a contemporary example of river regeneration and re-naturalization efforts that aims to interconnect the diverse communities that inhabit the city of Cluj-Napoca in Romania, as well as to re-associate them to local fauna and flora species that were far removed from their natural habitat on the riverbanks. It includes an extensive intervention in the form of public spaces, squares, parks, bridges and green spaces along 15 km of the River Somes as it flows through the city. It is currently at the beginning of construction process, with completion scheduled for 2023.
