Ri-Gjanica in Fier, Albania by MAU Architecture

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Article source: MAU Architecture

The project’s strategy is to increase those elements that characterize the identity of Fier, the reconstruction of a series of relationships that have conditioned the quality of life.

The city’s relationship with the river not only through the presence of a new urban platform, but through a connection to the broader and more complex territory. River revelation towards transparency, visibility, visibility, usability and access to the coast; The greening relationship permits the recognition of a permeable boundary within compact constructions by enhancing visual perception. Along the shore on the north side of the river, the project proposes, in this regard, a linear park that balances spaces through a green road network with a multidimensional vision due to different perceptions of views. The northern Axis also remembers a pedestrian system, the “Promenade”, and a wide greenery system.

National Photomuseum Marubi in Shkodër, Albania by casanova+hernandez architects

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

In 2013, the Albanian Ministry of Culture envisioned a plan to improve the national cultural infrastructure, paying special attention to the renovation of existing historical buildings, reusing them with a new cultural program. One of the first projects included in this program is the Marubi National Photomuseum, which is specially important due to its pioneer character. The plan to create the museum has enjoyed an enormous national repercussion because of the historical importance of exhibiting the photographic legacy created during more than one century by three generations of photographers from the Marubi family. But also, because preserving and disseminating Marubi’s work in a historical city as Shkodër acquires a strong symbolic significance that will help to promote the Albanian national identity, specially among new generations.

Building Tirana’s GREEN Future: Tirana Northern Boulevard and River Project in Albania by Cino Zucchi Architetti

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Article source: Cino Zucchi Architetti

The center of Tirana is marked by a clear urban layout, but its recent growth filled up a large area around it without any order, structure, adequate services or meaningful public spaces.

In our proposal, the voids rather than the buildings become the catalysts of new urban regeneration, attracting public and private functions around a sequence of green spaces of high environmental quality. The extension of the boulevard into a lively green promenade progressively opens up to the beautiful landscape of the hills across the Tirana river.
