Establishing new connections to reunite a divided capital, ZHA envisioned Eleftheria Square as the first part of a much larger urban planning vision, with new public spaces within the moat that encircle the entire Nicosia reconnecting communities on either side of the ‘Green Line’ that divides the city. Located near the centre of Nicosia, adjacent to the Venetian Wall and its dry moat that encircles the ancient city, Eleftheria Square is the largest civic plaza in Nicosia and has been designed to host festivals and public events attended by thousands of the city’s residents.
