Tirana Lakeside Masterplan. Albania
View between the internal and external ring of the buildings
Development of a strategic mixed-use site located against the artificial lake in the city of Tirana. Emptiness lies between the traditional city and the great lake. The site of twenty hectares is situated in the South of the Albanian capital. It sits against the lake, which is surrounded by a chain of parks and green spaces. This arrangement provides lucrative opportunities for development and regeneration. Extracting inspiration from this relationship, the design proposal seeks to itenerate these natural circumstances into an internally autonomous urban system that liberates a central space of activity as rings of program concentrically radiate out to establish zones while mantaining its perimeter. A limited zone of water exists at the focal point. The program of the internal ring consists of recreational facilities, green spaces and retail. The external ring of hotels, office towers and residencial condominiums establish the siteâ€™s perimeter. Personal responsabilities in this competition included 3D modeling and subsequent perspective renderings, presentation material including final submission rendering in perspective and plan.
