Tirana Urban Complex, Albania

The third urban complex for Tirana will contain the Parliament, cinema, bazaar, library, a park, commercial area. The panel the determined MVRDV Architects the winner of this competition naturally looked for a monumental and unique character that had defining entrances but also communicating spaces. Colorful rectangular boxes are easily recognizable and fit into the green spaces, while permitting a flow through squares and interior areas. The buildings react to each other in a sort of urban island. The program of each building determines its position and little else, so perhaps the blocks are meant to present the skeleton of what will be a more meaningful manifestation.
