Cyprus Pavilion, Venice, Italy
The limits of the Green Line are created by the two opposing military formations. Through investigating the reconfigured urban fabric on the fringes of the Line within the walled city of Nicosia, a Game was created. This Game is made out of exact to-scale replicas of the existing urban blocks, which are currently used as defensive fortifications by the military. These models illustrate the untypical ways in which the military use typical spaces, such as streets and houses, to suit their strategies. The result: a Game in which you can create and re-configure your own sequences of contemporary urban warfare.
