Andreea Blaga

by andreeacblaga

My name is Andreea Blaga and I was educated as an architect at the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urban Planning, Bucharest. During my fourth year I had an Erasmus exchange at the Swedish School of Planning, Blekinge Tekniska Högskola, Karlskrona, where I had followed a master programme with majoring in sustainable urban planning.

Currently I am part of a bigger research project called ‘urbanHist’ which is a multidisciplinary research and training program whose aim is to develop a joint understanding of the history of urban planning in the 20th century from a European perspective. My research project “Planning for Growth and Social Welfare” is aiming to address the Swedish welfare model and to place it beyond the national frontiers, in a broader European context, while considering the interstate knowledge diffusion and transfer that occurred during the postwar period between architects and planners.
