Hands-on Famagustaā€¯ Summer Workshop 2014: Unifying Visions for Famagusta
06 Jul. 2014
The workshop was participated by volunteers and students as well as experts and young graduates of architecture to transforming controversies for the city  into design challenges. 
Material produced at this workshop became part of the web platform. 

We define controversies as turning points during urban design / planning processes when conflictual points of views coming from the project actors involved, are negotiated by the assembly of actors. During the negotiation the points of views may be readjusted by a collective decision process that may include the creation of additional points of views, may cause their turning down or their support by other actors, or even their modification. In some cases additional project actors may be introduced into such assembly.

Hands-on Famagusta Summer Workshop: Field Survey of Famagusta City
25 Jun. 2014
40 volunteers from both communities were divided in groups of two to three people both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots and were assigned specific areas of the city to survey. They were given printed maps of the city in A3 format on which they documented the existing buildings, their use and their height. The GC volunteers were going to Famagusta every morning by bus and returning back in the evening. Due to the inaccessibility of the fenced off part of the city, satellite images were used by the team to update the maps and have them ready for digitilization.
