Haskovo’s New Urban Park

How to integrate an old military terrain into city’s life? How to transform a sufficient size area in the heart of the city into an urban park to enrich the public realm, the image and the development of the city? How to preserve the historical identity and to add new functions and activities to reflect people’s needs? These are the questions that provoked us to develop a conceptual competition project for urban park development in the city of Haskovo. Our vision for the territory is to regenerate and develop the old military terrain and to turn it into a connecting, with its own identity, sustainable, innovative and attractive urban park that will enhance the city’s green infrastructure and will increase the public space quality.
