51n4e - Skanderberg Square, Tirana
|F. Persyn ; C. Lao Schmidt Eds ;.
The ambitious transformation of Tirana’s Skanderbeg Square is the result of a collaboration between Belgian architecture office 51N4E, Albanian artist Anri Sala, Belgian environmental designers Plant en Houtgoed, and Albanian project developer iRI. The large-scale project’s challenge was to reshape a high-profile urban space, a central plaza in the nation’s capital city that is representative of this developing young democracy, while deftly addressing the hope and tension that comes with such transitions. This book is a pilot of a forthcoming series called ‘Chapters’, a progressive documentation of the work of 51N4E and its collaborations with related individuals and practices.
