CYPRUS ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM
Location: Cyprus – Nicosia
Project Size: 21.000 m²
Construction Cost: €39.678.000
In an era where digital and complex architectural forms and concepts seem to be thriving due to the inexhaustible technological means of representation (and influences due to the internet), it would be easy to deviate from the symbolic and sensitive approach to which history, heritage, tradition and identity greatly contribute in such theme projects.
We strongly believe that the New Cyprus Museum should be representative of Cyprus’ historical and archaeological heritage (with reference to the different eras, artifacts and materials they represent) and that it should also represent Nicosia’s architectural and urban heritage, instead of creating another ‘universal’ trend of architectural concept that is not representative of the context (historical, architectural, cultural and urban) it is in.
