About object:

The architectural concept is to transform the square into a lively, attractive and actively used urban space, to provide it with clearly identifiable and strong architectural character. It was managed to realize most of ideas suggested in competition, except info-box. The Reform Movement Square has a dotted fountain designed where its 11 nozzles shoot water up to 4 meters in height; and the citizens and city guests are greeted with a “sharp” concrete halt. Officially cold granite has been laid; its seriousness is cut across by a refracted strip of black broken stone, ending with a new fountain with a metal sculpture “Nendrės” (Reed) (sculptor D. Sodeika). Graphic images are shown on the advertisement screen; and the illuminant walkway connecting the new part of square with existing sculpture clock is switched on at night (architect V. Vizbaras). “Eternal” benches of granite cubes are arranged nearby the square, and a little grown trees planted along the perimeter will cover the facades of surrounding blocks of flats. Authors rejoice that the Square has been reborn: active communication, children swimming, youth parties and city events take place here.
