0910 DR The Water Pavillion

[e]The Water pavilion is an open air public space, located exactly above the water surface. Steel structure is rooted in the river bed, and connected with the existing river bank by the pedestrian bridges. Cascading floor layout is planed for easy access to different size boats and varied water-levels. During the summer period, pavilion functions as a public beach, where cascading surface enables direct contact with the water. The Water Pavilion is conceived as an initial intervention within the future transformation of the Port of Belgrade. With minimal changes of the existing surroundings, and contrasting the industrial ambiance, pavilion is conceived as a new land-mark. Different activities will unfold in the pavilion to attract the visitors and simultaneously promote the whole district.

[s] Paviljon na vodi je projekat otvorenog nadkrivenog javnog prostora. Visenamenski prostor cini fleksibilna celicna struktura oslonjena na recno dno, povezana pesackim pasarelama sa postojecim nasipima. Kaskadirajucim povrsinama u parteru, odgovara se na problem direktnog pristupa recnim plovilima razlicite velicine, tokom razlicitih vodostaja. U toku letnjeg perioda, paviljon bi funkcionisao kao urbana plaza, gde kaskade omogucuju neposredan kontakt sa vodenom povsinom. Paviljon je koncipiran kao prva intervencija u predstojecoj transformaciji podrucja Luke Beograd. Minimalnim promenama postojeceg okruzenja, kontrasno se odvajajuci od industriskog ambijenta, paviljon je zamisljen kao novi prostorni reper. Razlicitim aktivnostima koje bi se odvijale na njemu podstakao bi se protok ljudi i samim tim promocija celog podrucja.
