Architectural and monumental complex with fountains
The architectural and monumental complex with fountains was developed by Antyp ART-BUD LLC for the city of Severodonetsk, Luhansk region. The author of the project is an architect, sculptor, Honored Artist of Ukraine Petro Antyp.
Architectural and monumental complex “Infinity” was developed by “Antyp ART-BUD” LLC for the city of Zaporizhzhia. The author of the idea is an architect, sculptor, Honored Artist of Ukraine Petro Antyp. The fountain consists of 25 bowls located on different levels. A unique feature and compositional dominant of the complex is a 5-meter bronze ball (approximately 25 tons). It rises with a certain frequency of water pressure to a height of 3 meters. The project envisages a system of “water” screen 12 meters high and with a total area of 180 square meters, which shows laser shows, movies, concerts and more. The complex uses bronze sculptures and natural boulders, and its composition is based on the symbolism of geometric shapes (circle, square), which embody the idea of space, perfection and infinity. Therefore, the fountain organically combines the latest achievements of scientific and technical thought and sophistication of artistic and architectural solutions.
Fountain over the bridge
The project of the fountain over the bridge was developed for Khmilnyk city in 2012. The uniqueness of the project is that the main streams of water intersect with each other directly above the bridge. Special calculations avoid water falling on the roadway. The mode of operation of the lighting system involves periodic multi-colored painting of all jets of the fountain, including descending streams on both sides of the bridge and foam nozzles located in the river on both sides of it. Therefore, one of the advantages of the fountain is the use of summer water, which avoids the installation of special water treatment pools. The height of the two main jets reaches 30 m, length – 60 m. The pump system is designed taking into account their capacity. The conciseness and simplicity of the image-compositional solution of the fountain gives it a special charm and style. And the originality of the idea makes this project a completely innovative development of artistic and engineering thought of the XXI century. The author of the project is an architect, sculptor, Honored Artist of Ukraine Petro Antyp.
