The Câmpina Municipality decided to promote a contest for solving the modernization of its downtown, presently crossed by a major traffic road, with a public space potential underutilized. The municipality hypothesis, even though difficult to achieve, is intercrossing with an underground passage coupled with the necessary underground parking with a high capacity, a solution considered by many Romanian cities, but that is very radical, expensive and has a long achievement duration. Still, what can be achieved on the surface because of the segregation of circulations allowed us to reflect on the industrial character of the city, with a tributary destiny of oil exploitation and central spaces defined and outlined in a socialist manner. The key to our solution for the contest was the continuous portico, variable and multifunctional and the generated atmosphere deliberately industrial, but with a lot of potential to the ownership and use of various spaces.
