New remote controlled lighting system for the Unirii Fountains
Mihai Savin, Executive Director, APA NOVA
Artesian fountains represent an important part in the history of Bucharest architecture, during both the interwar period and the communist regime. For more than a year, Apa Nova assumed the role of restoring the architectural value of these symbols of old architecture, through the use of modern technology. The lighting scheme implemented to highlight the Unirii fountains illustrates Bucharest’s strategy aiming to combine historical and modern values.

In 1991 he graduated from the University of Technology of Constructions Machines and also holds an Executive Master of Business Administration.
