 Summary:
 The historic centre of Sibiu, is an obvious example of the complexity and generosity of the Medieval urban space, well preserved until nowadays. Beyond ‘states ’ and nice ‘thoughts’ regarding the knowledge of the inherited space, the documentations and the urban renewal projects received in Sibiu a deadline ’2007’. The ‘action’ of testing and applying the complex renewal strategy make the historic centre of Sibiu the first postmodern model in Romania. Patrick Geddes diagrams regarding the theories of urbanism and real life can be an efficient working tool, even in the urban renewal area, in order to check the proposed strategies, respectively for the actual successes made in this field. Geddes’s diagram shows the evolution of the built frame in the circle of life, ACTS through FACTS and THOUGHTS to DEEDS. Therefore, we propose a theoretical overview of the renewal methods of the Spirit of the Place (Genius Loci) in Sibiu.
