2007-2008 I Urban Project for the Historical National Park of Troy and the Environs


Urban Project for the Historical National Park of Troy and the Environs

An integrated development scheme was aimed to revive historical heritage in Troy Historic National Park while encouraging the experience of visiting the natural and cultural assets of the ancient territory. One of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, Troy embodies rich layers of history, myth and culture in a unique location by the Dardanelles. This intensive interest calls for a holistic approach which considers the co-existence of Historical National Park and the surrounding urban settlements, rather than solely focusing on the archaeological site of Troy. In this context, three project areas were specified: the activity park, the urban settlement and the rural settlements with their peripheries. While the activity park were to animate the history and myth of the territory, surrounding rural settlements were designed to support this holistic scheme with their contemporary rural life and production pattern.
