WORK
Literature research, field trips, exhibition visits, CCA archive research, buildings interior visit. Floor plans related to traditional/WHE
RESULTS
Functional layout/seismic vulnerability, documentary photography study
RELEVANCE
Followed reviewers’ recommendations: extended sites selection. Potential synergy with COST action European Architecture outside Europe
TRAINING

O2
WORK
Doctorate research topic: comparison of Romanian interwar buildings with RC structure in Europe. Technical building cassettes connected as “words” (Alexander’s principles, O4), described by ontology (O3) in a tree
RESULTS
Comparison tree out of comparison criteria transposed in computer science language (ontology, O3), a pattern language for participation in disaster management
RELEVANCE
Doctoral research, better research career prospect. Graduated from the doctoral school, submitted all referats preceding that of the thesis
TRAINING
Doctoral training without class attendance
O3
WORK
Cybernetic method: computer science ontology is a formal representation of a set of concepts within a domain and the relationships between those concepts, adequate for that between spaces in a building (operational structure)
RESULTS
COST action participation, related to architectural layout vulnerability (O1) and architectural/environmental value of building elements which define spaces (O6)
