The Turkish military sign is seen in front of a deserted hotel in an area used by the Turkish military in the Turkish occupied area, in abandoned coastal city of Varosha in Famagusta, southeast Cyprus, Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. The town's crumbling, war-scarred beachfront hotels have become an emblem of the country's division between Turks and Greeks. In 40 years, few have set foot inside the town, which remains heavily guarded by the Turkish army and twists of barbed wire. But that grim scene could present a rare opportunity. Massachusetts Institute of Technology architecture professor Jan Wampler calls it the greatest challenge of his career: he and a team of architects, urban planners, business leaders and peace activists hope to rebuild an entire town to correct past errors and mold a sustainable, ecological habitat.
