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.
DURANA ECONOMIC CORRIDOR Axonometric view of the section F3: KASHAR LAKE It is the biggest reservoir of the whole Lot 1. Its scale allows recreational uses. Its extension and shape makes possible to swim and sail in it at the same time. While activities on the lake are already starting to be organized by a small economic activity, the area still lacks boat deposits, swimming lanes, piers, showers, changing rooms, diving boards. Kashar Lake Park at the Kashar Water Reservoir is an attempt to create a new recreational park related to the highway corridor of Tirana - Durres. It is a reinforcement of the park program on Kashar Lake. The FAST TRACK project is the reinforcement of the park program on Kashar Lake, part of the study Section 1 [S1]. While activities on the lake are already starting to be organized by a small economic business, the area still lacks the basic park infrastructure. 40 PIOVENEFABI + YellowOffice + ArchiSpace Studio
