An urban structure in Prompt natural cement in the Czech Republic
To rejuvenate its Staroměstské náměstí square –the Old Town square – the town of Mlada Boleslav commissioned a work from the artist Véronika Psotkova. She chose Prompt natural cement for its warm colours and stone-like texture.
Comprising a river in stainless steel, sculptures of three groups of children, water features, fountains and waterfalls, the ensemble recreates a living space. The artificial stone concrete blocks act as seats, and provide an area for rest and relaxation. Five locks allow pedestrians to adjust the water flow.
And a timely reward: this project received the first “Construction of the year 2011” prize in the Czech Republic.
