INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF PERFORMANCE ARTS AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN FAMAGUSTA

PERFORMING ARCHITECTURE

The project is located in very important area that has social and political problems since 1974 when Cyprus declared its republic. On the other hand, island has many historical values because of different ancient communities. Project site is located one of these historical places that is a walled city in Famagusta. Walled City has been hosted various cultures and nationalities such as Lusignans, Venetians and English and it includes various monuments from them. However, monuments are left to lose their identities during the recent years. In my project these different types of monuments are examined according to their architectural and structural characteristics and their values are interpreted in a contemporary way. In other words, site and its monuments is taken as inspiration source.
