INTENTIONS - PHILOSOPHY
Constructing the recreational centre at the embankment area of Limassol is one of the main interventions in the coastal zone of the town. Considering the need of establishing a functional link between the town and the sea, this intervention project gives the opportunity to generate a public area, which will be used by both the citizens and the visitors, along with developing there the main cultural and recreational activities. It could therefore become a public place of reference in the town. The proposal, which comes next, advocates a balanced relationship between natural and artificial element, with a view to achieving the optimum natural and functional inclusion of this place in the coastal zone. It eventually tries, with the restoration of the Olympians� Coast, to rehabilitate the lost direct proximity of the town to the sea and materializes a project in a symbolic way, in that AKTAIO recalls Limassol�s past recreational centre.
