CYSOA Lighthouse

CYSOA Lighthouse

The Cypriot” stands at the Beach of Geroskipou, facing the Mediterranean Sea.  Inspired by Ancient Cypriot Sculptures, the lighthouse is gifted anthropomorphic features. Its elegant curvature is expressed by timber diagrid cloaked in steel mesh. Its abstract form invites multiple interpretations. It can be read as a torso covered with Himation, or a priest dancing towards the sea. The light source is imagined as a Halo that crowns the Cypriot.  With the translucent, ghostly quality of metal mesh, the lighthouse creates a surreal and mystic atmosphere to its surrounding.
