Biography

ADNBA was established in 2003 in Bucharest, by Andrei Șerbescu and Adrian Untaru, later joined by Bogdan Brădățeanu. The work of our practice is characterised by our attempt to search for the right balance between experiment and experience in the complex and delicate landscape of contemporary life. While we believe in architecture as a creative gesture, with cultural value and social responsibility, we also acknowledge the sometimes hazardous, and always subjective distinction between such attributes, in a rapidly changing environment as nowadays Romania and the whole of Eastern Europe.

The challenges brought by the different scales, the diverse urban and cultural contexts, or the various building types we have worked with so far, have all enriched our experience and understanding of the many-sided nature of our profession. Our practice has achieved critical recognition for both our built projects and our competitions entries, many of which have been awarded in national and international juries.

We are currently involved in a diverse body of work, including mostly residential offices and public projects. In all of these, we strive for a wider and wiser understanding of the city and its evolution, this being also the essential background for our thoughts, hopes and doubts. But upon this background, the specific situation which each project and place bring to us, together with its fragile ties to the people, the neighbourhoods and their stories, is what interests us most.
