18 Village workshop - charrette Why did we need a village workshop? –Things were moving slowly at the Town Hall –If we could get no input from the municipality we would get it by our own. Why did we invite INTBAU Scandinavia to organise this work shop? –The project architect was Mr. Arne Sødal, member of INTBAU Scandinavia. –Intbau Scandinavia proposed to organise the WS. It was good value for money. –The quality turned out to be excellent.

19 The long term consequences of involving INTBAU? Mr. Sødal and Mr. A. Engh organised the workshop. The need for a training venue and office became evident. The first steps towards a rental agreement for House 344 was made. Mr. A. Sødal, Mr. A. Engh, A. Neag, have the contract with the owner. The paperwork to start INTBAU Romania was set in montion. The genesis of INTBAU Romania was started. Many students were recuited from the Medias workshops / architect competitions. Mr. A. Sødal, Mr. A. Engh pushed this project forward on their own initiative.
