The exhibition features Zaha Hadid Architects' project of Eleftheria Square in Nicosia Cyprus and is curated in collaboration with the Cultural Department of the High Commission of the Republic of Cyprus in the UK.
The project is simultaneously exhibited in two venues: The Hellenic Centre and The Bargehouse.
Integrated Landscapes is an approach to designing projects throughout the intersection of political, social and ecological issues. The concept for Eleftheria Square takes the form of an architectural intervention, which is only part of a much larger urban planning vision that aspires to organize and synthesize the whole of the Venetian Wall, Moat and Fringes into a unified whole. The significance of the intervention at Eleftheria Square lies in the fact that it can become a catalyst for the urban unification of the whole of Nicosia.
The architectural concept is part of a vision to establish the extent of the Venetian wall and the Moat into an urban park, a Central Green ring that circumscribes the whole of the Walled city.
