Fountain Tower. Batumi. Georgia
2010. Batumi, Adjara (Georgia).
Scope of the work: Design. Documents for construction.
Client: Government of Ajara.
Budget: 4,100,000 euros.
Description: Conceived as a meeting point, the architecture and the city are mixed in this open and recreation space. The tower consists of five different volumes with a total height of 25 meters. A central fountain has its source in the interior of the building and expands itself radially outside, so the building blends with the environment. The water in its way through the building generates different spaces and atmospheres, transparency of the openings and arches allows to enjoy the interior decorative elements. The historicist language used remits us to the early twentieth century ottoman architecture, where clocktowers were built as emblematic buildings.
