The present architectural competition, besides the architectural synthesis for the regeneration and redevelopment of the “Germanina Farm” calls also for a proposal of the new uses of the farm.
Over the last few decades, the rapid growth of the tourism at the Geroskepou inevitably changed its agricultural character, which was sovereign for centuries. The process was accelerated by the new Paphos International Airport which is next to the Germanina Farm.In such cases of rapid changes there is always a serious risk that the original character of the place would be damaged or lost irreversibly. Hence, it is crucial a strategic plan which will govern the change and will take under serious consideration the special qualities and the old character of the place. In this spirit the particular proposal for the Germanina Farm is to become a Centre for the research and dissemination of the agricultural tradition of the greater Geroskepou area.
