The Akamas Landscape Between Science and Myth

Meet the challenge – take part in the International Student Competition of the LE:NOTRE Institute Landscape Forum!

Hosted by theNeapolis University in Paphos, Cyprus from 16th - 20th of March 2016 the forum will focus on the north-western region of Cyprus including the peri-urban landscape of Paphos and the natural areas of the Akamas peninsula. The competition area is located in the most eastern part of Cyprus. The objective is to conceive a landscape narrative from the sea to the rural hinterland. The proposed transect starts at the coastline following the Avakas Gorge to the Pano and Kato Arodes Villages, situated at 500 m above sea level. A concept should be developed around the overall themes of sustainable tourism and cultural heritage. The detailing task is to design a park for amateur astronomy and star-watching.

The competition aims to support integrated and holistic approaches to the Akamas landscape through multidisciplinary student teams elaborating planning and design proposals at various scales.
