Durana Corridor


The competition for Tirana-Durres corridor stems from the need to improve the urban condition of the area along the corridor. It is one of main circulation axis of Albania that connects the two biggest cities in the country and again connects them both to the airport. It has become an economic corridor that brings large revenue to the country. It cuts through many small cities and in this perspective the whole country is the beneficiary, while the communities along the corridor will be direct beneficiaries. From an organizational perspective the competition slices the Tirana -Durres corridor into three segments/ lots: the area which connects Tirana to the metropolitan highway, the area which connects Durres to the metropolitan highway, and the city of Vora which is split in half by the metropolitan highway.

Ring road as avenue of trees

orbit: grand vorЁ Park

The orbit that circumnavigates the north-west of Vorё is a ring road

defining the outer limit of an extensive Park - a public facility with Botanic

Gardens, Bicycle Loop, Jogging Path, Sports Fields, 2 Pyramidal Corporate

Office Towers, tree-lined Pockets for existing and new villas, a train station

and scattered rows of Eucalyptus Trees. Connecting the PARK to the

existing downtown Vorё is a public forum, a Piazza that ramps down and

extends under the highway, connecting to a tree lined Plaza and adjacent

School - a stitching together of town and Park.
