(The facade of) this building was designed by Bolles and Wilson under the concept of "Virtual air conditioners". I am too lazy to explain it but it is about the nice effects te white spots have and the fact that the install of air condiitoners would not ruin the building esthetically.



Another building in the Blloku area:

I totally agree over Tirana. When Edi Rama painted the government buildings it was cool cause they were getting back to how they were when they were built. With the new colors he went mad. The city looks like a LEGO made city

Regarding flags, Albanian patriotism outside Albania is amplified by at least 10-20 times.

Tirana needs a serious leader next time. An urbanist or architect and not a painter.

Rama was nice for as long as it lasted. He lead Tirana into an urban masacre. Try to drive around Tirana and you will see that he was totally unable to create the necessary infrastructure needed for a city to work normally.

He painted the facades. Good! Try to take a look at the other side of the buildings that are literaly falling appart.

What is a city all about? Is it for tourists to feel like they are in a circus or for its residents to have a normal life?

Not to mention for the way all this was done. Not through lawful ways but through "personal contacts" with people in the construction business. This lead to corruption and state capture within the municipality. So now you have all possible kind of buildings done by the businessmen around Rama that don't don't even respect the plans and projections Rama goes so proud of.

The construction business is constantly producing new commies with some schizophrenic paint on them, with no architectural values.

Only a few serious constructions have been going on in Tirana.

Rama turned into a myth, with all the MEDIA owned by 2K Group doing such a great propaganda on him.

He is rude, unable of dialogue, unable to have normal relation with the MEDIA, he does not respect laws and institutions and when people ask this from him, he calls them "bureaucrats".

He was needed to Tirana to get the city out of chaos but now it is time for him to get out. He did good things, but his time has come. He changed the city into its personal art gallery, ignoring WHO are the people of Tirana, and WHAT their NEEDS are. Nowdays, it is definitely better then in 2001, when he began his work as Minister of Culture, he did a good job. He degenarated, became a victim of its own practices. He now needs to return favors to the businesses that helped him out, and this pay back goes against the interests of the people of Tirana.

In the rush hour the smoke and dust is as thick as fog, the air heavy with lead and tiny particles called PM10s, which harm the lungs and cause cancer. On an average morning, the volume of PM10s is more than 10 times the World Health Organisation limit. Some 50,000 tons of air bubbles and carbon dioxide fall on the capital Tirana every year, or 48 kilogrammes (105 pounds) of damaging particles per inhabitant. Tirana is estimated to be one of the most polluted cities in the world, behind New Delhi and Beijing, but way ahead of Athens, Budapest, Bucharest or Madrid.

He is neat though. Very popular among young people, Albanians in Kosovo, Albanians living outside Albania. He is carismatic and runs the municipality under an iron rule.

It does not matter whether it will be a socialist or democrat but the next mayor needs to be other then schizophrenic and hopefully an urbanist or architect to improve the life in Tirana.

One thing is more imortant then everything else, and that is for the cult of individual that surrounds Rama to turn down.

Keep in mind though, the only things being painted to such extreme are old commies who sooner or later will be taken down to be replaced with serious developments.
So this is temporary of course and Edi Rama wont be the mayor forever.
The new mayor will halt this craziness at some point and give the city a presence in colors that are more pleasing to the eye, not outrageous like we see today.
I disagree also with Shallvaret (soviet looking buildings) where parts of the facade have small color squares painted on them.
You cant experiment with great architecture of the city such as Shallvaret, just give them a nice color and leave the architecture speak for itself.

"Shallvare" and "Agimi" complexes that shared common architecture were literally attacked in all their values.

Some news from Shekulli

Ngjyrat e kryeqytetit shqiptar nė Novisad


Shekulli

Ngjyrat e Tiranės udhėtojnė ditėn e nesėrme pėr nė Novisad tė Serbisė. Ndryshimet e viteve tė fundit nė kryeqytetin shqiptar do tė shpalosen dhe nė vendin fqinj, pėrmes projektit tė “<@>G r o u p”, “Dammi i Colori”. Pas realizimit tė projektit “Tirana Overground”, i cili pėrbėhej nga 12 ekspozita dhe projektit “Farmaci pa Ndjenja”, nesėr “Grupi <@>” do tė realizojė projektin “Dammi i Colori”. Ky projekt do tė realizohet ndryshe nga tė parėt. Pas udhėtimit nė Hidrocentralin e Komanit, hapėsira e zgjedhur pėr realizimin e kėtij projekti ėshtė “Exit Festival”, qė zhvillohet ēdo vit nė Novisad tė Serbisė. “Ky projekt ėshtė veēuar jo rastėsisht pėr tu realizuar nė Novisad, ndonėse nė gjithė aktivitetin Tiranė - Prishtinė ekzistojnė akoma edhe 8 projekte pėr t’u realizuar. Por e veēanta e kėtij projekti ėshtė se ai ka marrė shtysė nga njė video dokumentar mjaft specifik “Dammi i Colori”, tė cilin Anri Sala e ka organizuar pėrgjatė njė interviste me kryebashkiakun e Tiranės, Edi Rama, rreth ndryshimeve tė kėtij qyteti, dhe kėto ndryshime do t’i pėrjetojė mediatikisht nėpėrmjet video artit qyteti fqinj i Novisadit”, - thotė organizatori i kėsaj iniciative, Fani Zguro. Sipas tij, nė kėtė video ngrihen probleme tė rėndėsishme sociale ekonomike, ashtu sikundėr tė gjithė jemi koherentė. “Pas realizimit tė saj apriori katėr artistė tė tjerė shqiptarė organizuan nė njė hark kohor rekord prej katėr muajsh, tė gjithė nė tė njėjtėn periudhė, nga njė video. Secila nga kėto video e merr subjektin nga transformimi radikal qė i ka ndodhur Tiranės dhe nė njė mėnyrė apo nė tjetrėn nga video dokumentari “Dammi i Colori”, - vazhdon artisti.
Alban Hajdinaj paraqitet me “Eye to Eye”. Video ku njė vajzė reflekton rreth fasadave tė ngjyrosura nga projekti “HUO” pėr Bienalen e Tiranės 2. Ku artistėt internacionalė si Gillick, Eliasson etj, vendosėn qė tė vazhdojnė punėn e Ramės, duke marrė pėrsipėr qė edhe ata tė ndryshonin fasadėn e pesė pallateve nė Tiranė. Sipas Zguros, ky projekt sa social aq edhe politik ėshtė parė me njė vėshtrim kritik tek videoja “Eye to Eye” e Alban Hajdinajt. Ndėrsa Gentian Shkurti vjen nė kėtė projekt me videon “Color Blind in Tirana”. Eshtė historia e njė djali qė ka humbur aftėsinė pėr tė parė me ngjyra dhe drama virtuale e tij ėshtė se ai nuk mund tė shohė ndryshimet koloristike nė kryeqytet. E dashura e tij ėshtė pėrshkruesi narrativ i siuatės dhe midis tyre fillon njė dialog, i cili pėrfiundon me citime ngjyrash tubeti, ndėrkohė qė imazhet vijojnė vetėm bardhė e zi.
Tek videoja e Fani Zguros “Torture Stamp”, do tė njihemi simbolikisht me historinė e njė tė riu i cili kthehet pas shumė vitesh nė vendlindje dhe i vetmi moment ku ai ndihet i qetė dhe nė harmoni me vendin, janė orėt e vona tė natės, ku gjithēka ėshtė e shkretė dhe e heshtur. Heldi Pema mbyll retrospektivėn e kėtij projekti me videon “The Client”. Nė kėtė video planet vijojnė bardhė e zi, dhe kamera ėshtė gjithmonė nė lėvizje, pasi ajo xhiron nėpėrmjėt njė makine - taksi. Kjo video i bėn njė reportazh minimal panoramės nokturne tė Tiranės, e cila nuk kuptohet nėse vėrtet ndodhemi nė kryeqytet apo jo! “The Client” mbyllet me pėrplasjen virtuale pas njė muri, me titrat THE END!!!.
Mėsohet se tė katėrta kėto video hapen pėrpara publikut me njė konferencė pėr shtyp, ku do tė prezantohet libri “Young Albanian Artists” nga Fani Zguro, dhe mė pas do tė diskutohet rreth videos “Dammi i Colori”, nga ku mori shtysė dhe vetė ky projekt.
Mandej tė katėrta videot do tė projektohen nė skermin e madh, ku pėrpara tij do tė luajnė “Fat Boy Slim”, “Garbage”, “Underėorld”, “Slayer” e “Napalm Death”.
