TIRANA | Park City Development News

Tirana - Park City

This project is located in the western outskirts of Tirana, an area under heavy development in recent years due to its prime location close to the main entrance door to Albania's Capital.

With a total of approx. 400.000 sqm floor built area it will house about 7.000 inhabitants. It stretches between two large parks, whose conceptual design was also part of the design brief: Runway Park, the 1.1 km former landing strip, and Lana Park, an extension of the city's main green axis.
The design proposes an urban layout that forms a hinge between these two parks, makes them accessible and connects them while strenghtening the distinctively different character of both. The urban structure is a combination of three typologies, offering a broad variation of lifestyles opposed to the prevelant development paradigm of 9 floor broken perimeter blocks in downtown Tirana.

Studio: Cityfoerster
Architects: Mareike Henschel, Martin Sobota with: Harm Timmermans (shift), Ulrike Centmayer (landscape)
