SPORTS TOURISM IN DILIJAN

 COLLABORATOR ROBERT COX

CAPITALIZING ON DILIJAN’S ILLUSTRIOUS PAST AS A RESORT AND SPA TOWN, WE HAVE REIMAGINED DILIJAN AS AN ACTIVE RESORT TOWN - COMBATING SLUGGISH TOURISM IN ARMENIA BY DEVELOPING AN EXTREME SPORTS CENTER. ACCOUNTING FOR NEARLY ONE QUARTER OF WORLD-WIDE TOURIST EXPENDITURES, EXTREME SPORTS TOURISM IS A PERFECT FIT FOR THIS MOUNTAINOUS REGION. IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE AREA, WE DEVELOPED A DISCREET, YET MONOLITHIC BUILDING THAT DISGUISES ITSELF WITHIN THE HILLS FACING THE TOWN WHILE INTEGRATING A NETWORK OF ACTIVITY TRAILS THAT WE DEVELOPED - DISTINGUISHING ITSELF ONLY BY A SERIES OF LARGE GEOMETRIC APERTURES.
