This proposal has been designed by the architecture studios Lompreta Nolte Arquitetos and MEQUETRAFFIC , both from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The goal of Beton Hala Water Front Center Proposal – composed of temporary and permanent exhibition space; and commercial area – is to create an urban hub, which would connect urban key points surrounding the building. These key points are namely the Belgrade fortress, Kalemegdan Park, Beton Hala and Kosancicev Venac.

More on this project after the break.

From the historical context of Belgrade fortress, connected to the natural context of Sava River and Kalemegdan Park, and the cultural context already present at the Beton Hala building; the architecture is woven in a cultural network, in which physical connections are to be made.

By using the landscape as a support, the architecture extends the park behind it and brings it to the public, creating a long boulevard that connects the low city, where the docks are located; and the high city, where the city’s fortress and park are.

The architecture is composed by several volumes that are superposed in different angles, creating interesting panoramas of the waterfront area. Interconnected open and closed spaces are created to enhance the experience of the architecture.
