Tirana's Main Boulevard Dėshmorėt e Kombit is very long.
It starts from Mother Theresa Square and it ends all the way down to Skenderbeu Square to continue under a different name Zogu 1 from Tirana International Hotel all the way down to the train station.



At night is so beautiful



Mother Theresa Square is nice as well , large enough

Tirana pictures

The first thread was over 200 posts so i decided to open a fresh one for the new updates and photos.
Here is a couple of pics from apartment buildings in Tirana.
Edi Rama has gone mad

Most people dont know this but the brain behind many of these very interesting color-painting renovations of old commie buildings is Anri Sala.
He is a 30 year old painter and writer from Tirana who lives and studies in Paris ,France.



Most people think is Edi Rama's work but that's not the case at all.
Edi Rama is the leader of the bunch but other people are in charge of repainting projects and of course Anri Sala is the one behind most of the large projects you see in downtown the city such as "Pallatet Agimi"

maybe we should separate Tirana Projects and Tirana pictures. this way it belongs to neither main page neither Fototeka.

could you make a new thread for projects only and I will move and rename this one in Fototeka

This guy has gone mad..

And of course, like with many architects, this artist does not live in the city/town/place where he realizes his creation. Makes you wonder...

I think they exagerate the colors in many occasions
They are trying to make the buildings look as unique as possible but i just think they are not attractive if you over do it
It's bad enough he uses different colors but he uses crazy shapes to go along with , it's just weird in a sense
It's like they are experimenting in a piece of paper a capital city

so this is the guy

I wonder, how was the decision made? Did he propose it to the municipal govt, or was it some kind of competition to revitalize the capital...

Yes , that's him.
Here is more info about Anri Sala



Sala is one of an emerging generation of artists whose work is informed by social and political tension. He explores the blurred lines between history and biography, fiction and reality through video, photography and animation. His richly textured images are embroidered with pain, disillusion, loss, ideas of responsibility and failure, closely bound to a painterly tradition.
