In 1986, on the orders of Romanian leader Nicolae Ceaușescu, Petrescu became chief architect of the colossal Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, a thirteen-year megaproject constructing the world's second-largest civilian administrative building after the Pentagon. During the 1970s and 1980s, she was involved in many of Bucharest's redevelopment projects, which led to the relocation of thousands of residents in order to demolish their old, poor neighborhoods, replacing them with modern buildings fitted with all the required necessities under one roof.
