Concrete Fountain

2017

 

A dialog between heavy and light. 

 

The massive cylinder incorporates a sink and it’s attached to a slim and long cantilever. Here there is a canal where the water would run trough before gently fall on the ground. A structural Re-Enforcement is the hidden protagonist. It’s a visible steel profile in the cantilever and a grid inside the block, keeping the two contrasting volumes in a surprising balance.
