Beton Hala Waterfront center
Mimesis and modern pride The project is shaped by the context: the long three storey building covered by the steel white platform roof looks like a contemporary re-edition of the old Beton Hala concrete building. His shape, lying down on the riverside, doesn’t block out the view of the fortress from the river. Meanwhile it generates the car parking, being a sort of dam containing cars. From the Kalemegdan hill, the new waterfront complex shows himself as a one-storey building, a thin long line whose shining roof reflects the sky like the sparkling water of the Sava River. This floor of the waterfront complex hosts the exhibition areas.
