The new appearance of Slavija Square will be a synthesis of several proposals. The main requirement was that this reconstruction can be performed in the same time as traffic reconstruction of Slavija . The idea predicts better and faster traffic in the area of the Slavija square and nice looking and useful space in the middle of the ring.

As a circle, Slavia’s event includes a circular motion, especially for drivers. The project identified the given zone of underground passages as an opportunity to get on the subway level again and affirm the circuit as a form and as an event, but this time in the form of pedestrian movement. Achieving an uninterrupted flow of the movement of pedestrians, which has so far been slow because of disintegration of pavement. Cascading drop which is characteristic for the fountain as a form of spectacle is here interpreted in terms of slits, which creates the the space on the underground level for placement of people who are exposed to the scene of the spectacle.
Elements of spatial solutions include: oversized drain (fountain), circumferential ring with pedestrian entrances to the street level, connecting communications- that connect the peripheral and central pedestrian ring and the central square in the form of a ring. Pedestrian circumferential ring that touches the entirely occupied zone in the underground makes a pure circular form that bounds pedestrian movements and projects them in the same round as the affected vehicles above.
