Since the end of the 19th century, Józef Wybicki Square in Gdansk Wrzeszcz has been surrounded with subsequent frontages. The urban interior, named after the author of the Polish national anthem, witnessed the birth of Günter Grass, a writer, a Noble Prize winner, and an honorary citizen of Gdansk. The sculptures of the writer and some characters from his books, along with the plaque and the monument adorned with the Józef Wybicki medallion commemorate the Polish and German cultural heritage mix characteristic of Gdansk.
The square has been recomposed, and its east-west axis restored. The existing fountain has been renovated, and the sculpture of a girl with an umbrella helps integrate the fountain into other architectural elements. Since the design is based on the existing infrastructure, the playground, fences, and square's surface have been used, and the noticeable central heating chamber was chosen for the location of the obelisk. The square required new elements, i.e. architectural details, trellises, and lighting designed in accordance with the square's style. The water supply and drainage system of the modernised fountain has been reconstructed. The original spout has been replaced with a row of spouts located along the fountain's circumference and pointed at the girl's figurine in the centre of the fountain. In spite of the modest budget available, it was supposed to restore the status of the public space named after the well known man from Pomeranian region.
