The ‘Hands-on Famagusta’ project has developed a model for a unified Famagusta it will be presenting next Saturday.
During the exhibition, the team will be showcasing a transportable model of the city comprised of 20 parts that are 3D printed.
With a length of 5.5 meters and a width of 1.8 meters, attendees will be able to use this as a starting point to imagine a “common urban future.”
‘Hands-on Famagusta’ in a statement said the projections depict “controversial matters that may emerge during the processes of the city’s reconstruction after a political agreement takes place.”
“It is a tool for public debate supporting communities to engage with possibilities of building the city’s commons, allowing the creation of a unified Famagusta.”
As part of the concept, the project has a website in Greek, English and Turkish.
The event is set to take place on November 28, 2015 – from 17:00 at the Sts. Peter and Paul church / Buğday Cami in Famagusta. The exhibits will remain open for the public from 27 – 29 of November, 2015, from 10:00 – 18:00.
The team is comprised of Imaginary Famagusta (I.F.), Laboratory of Urbanism, University of Cyprus (LU2CY), AA&U For Architecture, Art and Urbanism.
