Overview

One of the most characteristic features of urban space in Cyprus is its low density. This is a feature that is not consistent with either the size of the island and the need to limit the extent of its cities, nor with local climate conditions and Cypriot culture, which has historically created places marked by their vitality. Along with a detailed understanding of the reasons behind this reality, there is an urgent need to start a debate on the question of our future architectural and urban planning choices, as part of the exploration and shaping of a sustainable, quality urban space. It is this debate that we hope to place before the public with the publication of the present volume.
