japanese practice sou fujimoto architects has completed the concept for the ‘beton hala waterfront centre’ in belgrade, serbia. with its particular location at the edge of medieval beton hala, kalemegden park, sava river and adjacent to the fortress wall, the project seamlessly grabs each facet and entwines them into a literally spiraling structure of ramping ribbons in what fujimoto calls a ‘floating cloud.’ the eye of the circulatory whirlpool houses a new square and part of an exterior exhibition space which continues through under the massive roof structure. a restaurant and cafe are located under the inhabitable canopy along the riverfront, with commercial spaces closer to the fortress for easier access from the street. the woven bedlam of rings allow the user to find their ideal space based on the variety of programs existing in different sections, as well as the proximity of the surrounding sites.

the encircling bridges above ground separate the pedestrian from the subterranean parking garage and the transportation hub linking the ferry terminal, tram and bus. the structure exists as an array of social and transport functions, located in the middle of a culturally rich site, which joins the various components in a free-flowing circulatory whirlwind.

  • Wow when I saw it I really liked it , there are some not very clear points about the design but overall it is really interesting space. It makes me interested to go inside and experience the feeling… Makes me curious…I don’t understand why most of the comments are so negative.. Honestly! It is true that it can be a little bit less sophisticated and there are a few things which has not been considered as functional but in my opinion one of the most important things about designing a public space is to make people intrigued and attracted by it and make them wanting to experience it… I definitely am!
