Housing the Civil Servants and (Re)Constructing the Romanian Nation State: Ideology, Policy and Architecture (1918-1958)

Abstract : This article discusses the rapport of political concepts of Romanian state construction to housing policies and projects in the capital city. From the institution of a unified nation state in the interwar period, to the reconstruction of a Soviet-type socialist state after World War II, it illustrates how concepts and processes of state formation yielded social and spatial hierarchies related to housing. Aiming for a “long-term” historic approach, the study focuses on the continuities and inertia among successive political regimes in regard to assistance to housing for civil servants, considered as representatives and agents of state construction.
