Here's the full project presentation for Tirana's future Football Stadium. Courtesy of spanish architecture studio RFA - Fenwick Iribarren Architects

New National Stadium in Tirana

Tirana is the major centre for sports in Albania and Tirana's football clubs have won more championships than any other clubs in Albania. Tirana has two stadiums, the "Qemal Stafa" stadium (named after a WW2 hero) with a capacity of 19.600 seats and the "Selman Stërmasi" stadium which holds around 12,000 spectators.

The Concepts for the Design of the new Albanian National Stadium

When designing a new stadium, especially one which is to be considered a “National Stadium”, it is always of interest for the future design to evoke recognizable elements of both the city and the country.
The design for the new Albanian Stadium in Tirana looks to bring into the design the following 3 main concepts:

Concept 1: The shape of the Country of Albania itself
Concept 2: The rugged and faceted mountain landscape of Tirana
Concept 3: The National Flag its strong colors of red and black

CONCEPT 1
The Shape of the Country of Albania




The Concept evolves from the shape of the country and also refers to its north south orientation in Europe. Albania is placed north south and this also corresponds to the ideal orientation of a football stadium. The shape of Albania is then simplified in a faceted and geometrical irregular shape, and the main cities or towns are located on the geometrical “Albanian map”.



The design then joins the main towns of the country forming a series of triangular shapes, representing the union of the people in these towns, and the stadium. The centre area is void in order to allow light to the pitch.



The formalization of the faceted form and the lateral facades, with the rugged geometry of the mountains and the Albanian landscape begin to come apparent in the formal concept design of the stadium.
The black color evokes the form and the memory of the Albanian Eagle which is present on the flag of Albania, and the black color is again used in respect for the color of the bird on the National Flag.
The red of the inside bowl and seating responds to the red color of the flag, the background for the stadium national colors and the team colors when representing their country.



CONCEPT 2
The Faceted landscape of Tirana


Tirana has an impressive wild surrounding landscape which is present every moment in life of Its citizens like a background.
This strong, powerful and sharpened envelope is represented in the spirit of the new stadium and their people. One only has to look at the surroundings of Tirana, to the nearby mountain ranges, to establish how the city is accustomed to a rugged and faceted environment. The stadium design is made up from some different faceted triangular panels, and when placed on the structure with different heights the effect is an irregular faceted façade of great architectural presence.



CONCEPT 3
The Albanian Flag


The Albanian flag is a very strong image. It is the symbol of Albania and as such the project looks to take on two of the main element of the flag,
The colors Black and Red are strong and dynamic colors and the Concept design looks to incorporate these into the final design.

Toptani Shopping Center // Tirana // Albania // MVRDV

‘The Toptani Shopping Center by MVRDV is part of the recent developments in the Albanian capital Tirana, a city which has emerged with innovative creative force from the past socialist chaos.

The combination of retail and offices allows for an iconic building following the requirements of both programmatic parts. The retail is located easily accessible in the lower floors and arranged around an atrium which follows the natural access routes from the city. The shopping center can be used as shortcut to generate more pedestrian traffic. The interior of the atrium is clad with mirrors which will create a magical scenery in which the shapes of the reclining floors mirror themselves.

The office floors on top are arranged around the same core which is slimmer here which is more efficient for the office program. The office floors provide views over the city and outside spaces, in the Albanian climate a real asset.

The façade has two main functions: it engages the city by being accessible through a series of stairs and balconies extending the city life and providing a façade animated with life. Parts of the façade are devoted to advertising, mostly around the entrances to the arcade of the façade is clad with a giant LCD screen which can engage the city and is in this new positive tradition of Tirana. The façade can be programmed according to the events in the centre and it can even serve as screen for important events such as elections or football matches.’

It's really not that hard to understand unless you are in elementary school or something.
Updating some of the projects and the construction progess of those two towers isnt in my eyes childish. I would assume peopel are more interested in those rather than some 5-10 stories high residentials.

As i said peopel in general only check the latest page and dont have the time to go through all the pages which are dated back into 2008. Yes i do agree posting the same projects over and over is stupid and ruins the quality of the thread, but posting construction progess of two (landmarks) in Tirana in my eyes isnt and last time i checked i am not breaking any rules by doing so.

I was referring to posts #154, #155. Both those projects have already been posted.
If you look at some of the more productive and organized threads in this section, you'll notice that when new construction updates are posted, the render of the project is not reposted over and over again. Only the project's name is mentioned.

The Open Parliament of Albania by Coop Himmelb(l)au


March 28, 2011

Coop Himmelb(l)au announced that the new "Open Parliament of Albania" in Tirana which incorporates fundamental democratic values such as openness, transparency and public co-determination is officially confirmed. The building, located on a site area with approximately 28,000m2, is going to be the first project in Albania for the Viennese headquartered studio.

"Our design for the new Parliament in Tirana, Albania, stands for the transparency of democracy," commented Wolf D. Prix, Design Principal and CEO of Coop Himmelb(l)au.



Architectural Concept
As the future political center of the Albanian Republic, the Open Parliament of Albania creates an outstanding architectural landmark in one of the main parts of Tirana's urban fabric. Situated along the compositional axis of the city, it is located in vicinity to the major governmental institutions.

The design for the Open Parliament of Albania relies on three main ideas:

- To provide a strong urban statement in this exposed part of Tirana's urban fabric;
- To assemble the different functions in one building ensemble that is compact enough to create a public forum and a park on the southern part of the site;
- To create a unique building for the most important public institution of the Albanian Republic with a contemporary architectural approach shaped to optimize active and passive energy use.



The design incorporates fundamental democratic values such as openness, transparency and public co-determination. The simultaneity of competing political concepts within a democratic society is translated into the design concept: Different building elements are not opposed, but coexist in one building ensemble with a contemporary aesthetic that allows visualizing new functions and meanings.

The core of the building complex is the parliamentary hall that is situated in a glazed cone and stands for the transparency of the legislation.



A public stair leads from the public forum to the landscaped roof of the plinth building that unites all the different building elements of our design: Office block, entrance structure and parliamentary hall. From the plinth the public is able to look into the parliamentary hall even from the outside.

The main entrance is designed as a massive cone, which creates an impressive space and acts as the counterpart to the glazed parliamentary hall.



Energy Concept
The new parliamentary building for the Republic of Albania is designed to capture the natural resources and energy flows of its surroundings and employ them to provide optimal environmental conditions for its occupants. The special configuration of the building form and the optimization of the building envelope together with the use of renewable energy sources ensure an energy efficient design and reduce reliance on fossil fuel energy sources.

The office building is covered with a second skin made of perforated steel that is specially configured to improve building performance related to optimum daylight use, views, solar control, glare protection, thermal insulation, natural ventilation and noise protection.
