Niculescu uses architectural structures as instruments for exploring human activities, to investigate the current transformation of our natural environment and the evolution of urban habitats. Her multifaceted output results in experimental films, performances, still images and collages as well as writing that looks at geographically-informed socio-economic developments of modern architecture in different parts of the world. The films draw upon architecture’s relationship to its natural environment, its integration into urban systems and juxtapositions with the local vernacular. Her global approach leads her to discover relationships, of a formal and conceptual nature that have previously been overlooked or marginalized.
