Situated in Paphos, in Tassos Papadopoulos Street and adjacent to schools, the pedestrian bridge, aims to give children a safe path, offering the opportunity to learn, play, talk, without risk.

The shape familiar, intimate, characteristic to the kid’s world – a game with shapes and colors, inviting the children to “play over the road”, to move across safely, to “move” to the knowledge, through the impressions formed during the game.

The architecture rises through the movement, forms, colors, materials, and perceived through shapes sequences that require movement of the observer. All emotions are controlled by the using of the colors, preparing users psychologically and emotionally to reach their destination.

A presence that will become a reference point and offers an aura of renewal, energy and color to the area.
