Gathering a large group of academics, re-searchers, artists, architects, and urban planners, the publication Shrinking Cities in Romania is a pioneering initiative to raise awareness of an acute and pervasive yet too little discussed matter: the socio-cultural, physical, economic, and demo-graphic decline of Romanian cities, as a widespread phenomenon. Following the exhibition that took place at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) in 2016, the book illustrates the various fac-ets of the urban transformation that is taking place in many Romanian cities, thus linking the case to the global context of this urban phenomenon. The research re-ceived the AD Astra prize in 2014 as well as the Architecture Annual prize for Visions and Research in 2017.
