Some great things to do at drained fountains
在沒有水的噴水池你能做的事

2014

 

Huge drained fountains in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia, were once where people gathered and children might go swimming during the hot summer when it was under Soviet rule more than 24 years ago.


Without water today, they are still wonderful places to go. I have thought of several great things we can do there. This is part of my journey to explore possibilities of structures—whether they are abandoned, partially abandoned or unmanaged—in urban areas.

對稱又巨型的噴水池於二十多年前,是住在亞美尼亞首都亞首都葉里溫市的居民夏天聚腳聊天,甚至是小孩游泳的地方。在蘇聯解體後的今天,這些噴水池再沒有水,也甚少有人走近。

其實還有事情可以在這些地方做吧。我在當地邀請了不同人士到這些沒水的噴水池重新經驗這些設施。這也是我探索那些在都市中被棄置、半棄置或沒人管理的結構的一部份經驗。
