Vukovar Water Tower was heavily damaged during Croatian War of Independence and became a symbol of war suffering.
We barely touch the Water Tower… Panoramic elevator leads us to the memorial room in place of the former water tank. In the room, on the screens, we can see documentary videos from the period of the city and Water Tower suffering. A long zig-zag path leads us to the roof, to a viewpoint from which we can see the city which is renewed. And we can see the Danube.

In the Czech Republic, the current trend is revitalizing embankments, bringing water and streams back to the fabric of cities under the motto ´River back to the People´. The project “Making the Vltava waterway navigable” thus played its role in initiating this effort; it supports and introduces life back to the water sheet and its surroundings – this is the natural associate part of the project.

Matadero Madrid’s elevated water tower is a singular work: a concrete structure standing 25 meters high and 14 in diameter, located on the southern edge of the new contemporary creation space. The tower, which originally was surrounded by small garden pavilions for workers at the complex, now rests on a lot that has functioned in recent years as a makeshift parking zone and a space for stock and support of artistic activities. This earth-covered area, in which some of the plant species that inhabited the gardens still survive, will, in the near future, cover an underground transport hub and be transformed into a paved plaza providing access to the cultural facility.
