The Cultural Park of Paros _Velentzio, is located in the vicinity of the urban web of Parikia and offers the possibility of multiple cultural uses outdoors and indoors.
The main auditorium building is an important element in the whole composition,  with its placement, it liberates the landscape giving the possibility to create uses and conditions in the large free space between the pergolas.
The formed open-air void plays  the important element of the whole composition, it delimits the whole composition and liberates the landscape by uniting it with the sea.
The Hall offers the possibility to create a space for events. The large square in front of the foyer is the ideal space for summer events with direct entrance from the side street.
The large covered paths that start from the sea shore  and end at the building area , signal the proposal. One path is organized with a reinforced concrete pergola and the other with a wooden one, creating a contrast between them.
landscape design is a dominant element of the proposal: near the sea  tamarisk trees and low shrubs, next to the main piazza flowers and herbs, at the end of the plot tall palm trees .

The Philosophy of the Cultural Park lies in the creation of a composition of outdoor spaces with different textures, referring to the Greek flora and the local vegetation.
A key element of the intervention is the creation of the appropriate conditions, in order to enable the effective participation of the citizen.
