Abstract: The subject of this article is a sculptural pedestal in the urban environment. The harmonious interaction of the pedestal and sculpture is an important plastic compositional task. The article gives a short excursion into the history of the topic, analyzes specific examples and gives recommendations in solving compositional problems related to the pedestal in the urban environment. The purpose of the work: a historical excursion of the origin of the pedestal, and analysis of specific existing works of sculpture. The results of the study can be applied in the practical activities of sculptors, architects and urban planners in the situation of designing a sculptural form in the urban environment. The work employs methods of comparison and analysis of historical samples for compositional construction, as well as observation and specification. It can be concluded that the pedestal is the most important compositional element that not only affects the perception of sculpture, but also is an inseparable semantic component of one whole. Monument, any plastic spatial form in the urban environment is expressed clearly and convincingly when interpreted in a clear artistic, harmonious language, when it reaches the synthesis of architecture, sculpture and pedestal.
