On June 1, the renovated complex of fountains “Stars and constellations” was opened in front of Palace of Children and Youth in Kyiv.
The value of an architectural composition, which includes pools and fountains, consists in a monumental mosaic, which is a monument of modernism. The fountain was created by artists Volodymyr Melnychenko and Ada Rybachuk and recognized as a local monument of modernism.
The fountain has not worked for the past 40 years. Restoration of mosaics started in 2017. The works were coordinated by Volodymyr Melnychenko, one of the authors of the mosaic.
“It is extremely important to restore those monuments that are the history of our city. Fountains near the Palace of Children and Youth are a significant place for rest of the citizens, and I am pleased to note that today we have given a new life to this place”, — said deputy head of Kiev City State Administration Valentin Mondriyevsky.
The Palace of Children and Youth in Kyiv is a cultural monument of local significance. It was built in 1962-1965 by architects Abraham Miletsky and Eduard Bilsky.
