PARK IN RIO (IRINI PSILOU) I ntention of the course was the planning of a park based on the idea of the optics. The plot is rectangle, is found next to the casino of Rio and its one end reaches the sea. Aiming at the creation of different optics, the initial thought was the mapping out of diagonals. The carrefour of diagonals created a triangular grid. Then the rectangle plot was separated in triangular parts and a puzzle out of triangles was created. On this grid I organized a route that creates different optics from its every spot. This route leads to intermediate squares, and subsequently these squares lead to specific facilities. The hotel also follows the concept above. The hotel constists of a strip that changes its position on every floor creating interesting open and semi-open-air spaces.
