Urban Regeneration in Fellah

Creation of an urban identity.
Urban Regeneration in Fellah

Fellah, an area between mature urban development and the agricultural outskirts, is the main entrance into the city of Tripoli. Accordingly, the proposed design intends to dignify it as a central focus, by renewing its various spaces. Thus, with an arboreal corridor that offers protection from the hot winds from the desert as a basic element, the new urban network is oriented to take advantage also of the sea breeze as a heat regulating factor, making the experience of the public space more pleasant.
