RECOLOR:Restructuring the city center of Limassol
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This project proposes a mobility plan for the city centre of Limassol, with the goal of minimizing the use of the car and the social and environmental impacts of car traffic. The inner city of Limassol with the population of 160 000 to 200 000 suffers from a high dense traffic, facing excessive pollution, disconnected areas, an incomplete pedestrian and bike system. The project will focus on minimzing traffic and creating a complete pedestrian system in order to find new life lines for the city. The proposal presents a clear structure of a circular loop and six linear axes. The strategy in designing the loop and these lines is to highlight the unique qualities and different characters of specific locations. Together the loop and axis will allow the inner city to function more as a whole, in respect to live, work, culture, education and tourism.
