INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF PERFORMANCE ARTS AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN FAMAGUSTA

STONEHOLES

Famagusta has a powerful historical context and the context has created cultural and geological stratification on the walled city. The stratification connected with flow of life and the phenomenal sense can be shown with the cavities of sandstone which is the traditional material of Cyprus. Thereupon, the main aim of the academy project is creating free and interactive spaces on the ground by representing formation of the cavities. In addition, when the project is existed as over ground gren field which provides connection between students and locals with performance arts, it separates them as underground two layers. Especially, in the point, cavities from the main critical elements of design which provide circulation of people and other natural needs and the underground separation soften toward the holes.
