New Belgrade Fountain in Serbia by Studio Alfirevic

Fountain is located in front of the municipal building in New Belgrade (Serbia), designed in brutalism expression (Arch. Stojan Maksimovic and Branislav Jovin). The design of the fountain is an allegory of the time and the process of New Belgrade formation, as one of the most important modernist city parts of the former socialist Yugoslavia. In a contemporary way fountain evokes the appearance of the first collective housing buildings, which were erected in the area that was formed in the draining and filling wetlands process. Reduced visual expression, materialized in a minimalist manner, almost at the level of primordial symbols, is a reminiscence of extensive construction and architectural operations, which are conducted in order to form a new part of Belgrade, which was the capital of Yugoslavia.

Fountain consists of a shallow water area, like \”mirror\” from which modernist monoliths emerge. Surface treatment is performed in granite, with random positions of matte and polished slabs, as distant reminiscence of marshland. There are several granite benches at the edge of the plateau, with roughly treated matte surfaces, except the upper surfaces that are polished. Lighting for fountain consists of floor-embedded reflectors that are randomly distributed within a water-mirror area.
