Second Nature
The project Second Nature aims at the renegotiation of the relationship of the Public Garden with the urban landscape of Pafos, through the study and design of structures. The structures will combine the natural landscape with aesthetic standards and will be delivered as installations that will remain in the town. Participating teams of architects and artists from Cyprus, Denmark and China are: The Green Cube (Evdokia Papoui/Christakis Paraskevas), The Second Life-Fallen Leave (XianLiang, Liang/Wym Poon), Garden Bubbles (Robert B. Trempe), PolyCatOikia (Emilios Koutsoftides/Gabor Stark, Bloom (Charis Solomou/Odysseas Georgiou/Kyriakos Kyriakides/Michalis Georgiou), The Green Shower (Eleonora Antoniadou/Eleni Flouri/Andreas Tsiaklis/Pantelis Papadopoulos).
Concept and design: Valentinos Stefanou
The structures will be constructed on site from the 10th of February 2017 and their presentation to the public will take place on the 19th of February 2017 in an event that will include the participation of the Schools in Action programme.
At the same time, the installations – benches, built by the artist Michalis Papamichael under the Rebench programme, will be set up in the Public Garden.
