WATER SIGN (commemorating the centenary of water supply in Celje)
 
 

location: Celje, Slovenia
client: Municipality of Celje
type: public space
status: concept
year of competition: 2008

 
 
Envisioned as a transparent volume on a black stone base, the water sign faces passers-by as a large ice cube, symbolizing purity of water. In urban environment, water reaches us via an array of pipes, and this way it is also introduced into the sign: a simple pipe rising from the ground, supplying the fountain and returning into the ground again. The fountain, a white stone bowl, connects the sign to materials in the square. A water meter is incorporated into the sign, reminding us that water is precious. The volume's surface is printed with water molecules; at night, blue LED lights fitted in the base illuminated it from within, transforming it into an aquarium of blue water.
