INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF PERFORMANCE ARTS AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN FAMAGUSTA

CONVERGED CAMPUS

Imagine that you travelled Famagusta, the first place you will choose to go is the “WALLED CITY”. First impression you will get is the solitude and the unplanned of the city. The reason of this, Walled City has always been under the influences of war and military uses. Thus, An academy of performance arts&studies is an opportunity to break this sense. While analyzing the site, I was impressed of the organic orientation of buildings and streets. I tried to protect this characteristic of the city. As an international academy, in order to provide a mutualist relationship betwween students and locals, I blended the campus to the city. I created connections according to historical landmarks, and I blended the functions to the site. By this way, students get progrees by the study within the public and locals express and explore their identities by the integrating with art.
