The central fountain in Unirii Square has integrated four “water screens” oriented towards the four cardinal points, meant to create a huge multimedia platform for videos, but also laser projections, the arrangement of water screens offering a unique three-dimensional effect in Europe. Now the fully digitally monitored system allows the control of any individual unit in the entire complex of 44 independent wells located 1.4 km from Alba Iulia Square to Constitution Square.
Les Ateliers Nomad has developed a complex creative concept that combines a unique choreography with all the animation techniques known in Europe. The fountains in Unirii Square, built at the end of the ’80s, represent one of the longest such systems in the world (1.4 km), with a water surface of 16,200 m², unique in its layout in the center of the Capital.
