Beton Hala Waterfront Center, Winning Proposal

Sou Fujimoto Architects were the first place winners with their proposal for the Beton Hala Waterfront Centre in Belgrade, Serbia.  The project is an elaborate system of ramps combing landscaping, architecture, and urban space intertwining an array of social and transportation programs, contrasting the medieval fabric of the capital city.

The new, vibrant pedestrian square will serve as the principal access point from the capital's riverfront to it's historic core.  It will house retail space, cafes and restaurants, exterior exhibition space and a viewing platform, al perched atop a subterranean parking garage and transportation hub linking the ferry terminal, tram and bus.
