A place of culture, recreation and interaction
Iroon square is developing a new dynamic in the urban fabric as a result of the recent relocation both of residential and educational uses of the Cyprus University of Technology. Student activities, in combination with frequent cultural events taking place inside and outside Rialto theater, contribute to the change of public space. The new era of the square needs also a new identity as well as a programmatic flexibility for its users.
The proposal aims to reinforce the three main activities taking place in the square today: culture, recreation and interaction. The design focuses both on the enhancement of cultural events and collective activities, and on the composition of more relaxed and intimate environment that provides opportunities for creating new experiences.
