INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF PERFORMANCE ARTS AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERFORMANCE STUDIES IN FAMAGUSTA

DISSOLVING INTO THE’COORDINATED’

The three main blocks of the academy; The performance block, Education & Administration and Accomodation block, each follows a particular concept. The main idea was to attract people and indulge them into the space. Famagusta, well known as the walled city, has numerous historical monuments, and highlighting them through axes and introducing elevated walkways (which are multifunctional- used by the academy and public occasionally). The exhibition and education blocks have roof rested on walls, pr more properly wall planes, placed asymmetrically but always in paralles or perpendiculars, so that they appeared to slide past each other in a space through which the viewer could walk more or less endlessly, without ever being stopped within cubical area. This idea was actually repeated throughout the project. Each part was designed to maximize the view of the area.
