Eleftheria Square

Nicosia - Cyprus - 2010-2011

Eleftheria Square constitutes a dramatic and historically significant ‘architectural intervention’ – an aspiration to reconnect the ancient city’s massive fortified Venetian walls and moat with the modern city beyond – a bold vision of coherence and continuity which can become a catalyst to unify the last divided capital of Europe.
We provided guidance to the design team with the aim to give this historical place back to Nicosia’s residents while making it inclusive and usable by everyone.
