Tirana’s new boulevard extension is structured around a sequence of open, green spaces conceived as ‘urban living rooms’, giving it a new function as a linear park.
Tirana’s new boulevard extension is structured around a sequence of open,
green spaces conceived as ‘urban living rooms’, giving it a new function as a
linear park. The design put people first with over 65 per cent of space dedicated
to pedestrian and cyclists, while an abundance of trees and bushes creates a
natural barrier to the traffic. Responding to the high demand for open space
in the capital, the concept reflects the Mediterranean outdoor culture of
transforming the quality, safety and security of the urban environment, and
encouraging walking as the most enjoyable and convenient means of moving
around the city.
