How to connect the past with the future?
Two different worlds merged in time and space. We transform the linear perception of time into a cyclical one. The key element of the winning design from Superatelier is a circle which connects the historical site with the surrounding public spaces. The circular design with a footbridge allows the exploration and viewing of the entire site from a multitude of angles. The openness of the winning design to the surrounding environment, the natural flow of movement around the site and the neutral architecture of the pavilion positively contribute to the presentation of the archaeological site.
For the Water Tower, the authors chose a welded wire mesh solution, which hints at the volume and shape of the original historical structure. Similar solutions are commonly used for the presentation of historical structures abroad, as they showcase them in an appealing and attractive way to visitors. The area surrounding the Water Tower with all its features becomes a central point of the new urban structure of Vydrica and a place for relaxation inside an active and lively city zone.
Whether you are inside the circle or moving along its perimeter, there are always things to discover.
