Square Sarajevo, Kragujevac, Serbia
Open competition for the conceptual architetual project "three city fountains"
​team: Josif Milenković, Jovica Milošević
Conception of the square can be named a "house without a roof." White monolithic structure permeates the space. It continuously extends from the top of the fountain across the benches, descends to the parterre and from there ascends forming the entrance gate into the largest spatial unit of the square. It is separated from the rest of the square by billboards and serves as a cultural center in the open. There are ergonomic freestanding benches for semi-lying body position – where people can relax, read and so on. The square has 2 more units - a part for the outdoor cafes, which is located next to shops on the ground floor of the building and the area around the fountain. The fountain itself is modeled after the famous Isama Noguchi fountain. A vertical pipe delivers water to the cube from which the water flows down around the pipe in jets. The jets visually conceal the pipe (which also serves as a supporting structure) and the cube seems to levitate
