This project gains inspiration from the local traditions of Mahmudia, Tulcea. Crafts are one of the least popular works in Tulcea, especially since the financial crisis. However, Mahmudia features the House of the Fisherman, a small museum that shows the life of fishermen and what they do. This museum has displays of old houses of the city, which help in the creation of this model design.
The model features the rustic charm of traditional architecture. The theme of the design is “wintery village”. The colors of the buildings are a classic wooden brown. Among the many considerations in making the model are the place’s soil and the weather. The construction will be made to cater these factors. Since Tulcea is a very busy industrial city, so the barn-like buildings are built to link the people to their roots. The model is a collaboration between traditional and modern colors.
