Tirana Architecture Week and the Albanian Ministry of Culture invite architects and architecture students up to 40 years old in an open ideas competition for the Pyramid Square of Tirana. Positioned in an emblematic location, formally a symbol of Communist Heritage in Albania this space in the present day has no future and identity, placed where most of the significant historical periods of the city overlap the organic origin from the autoritarian regime through 20 years of transition. A solution for a harmonious coexistence is yet to be found. This document describes the objectives, the terms and conditions of the competition, and describes the characteristics of the site. All submitted projects shall be reviewed by an international jury, composed by representatives of the Ministry of Culture and experienced professionals.The jury shall select five finalist projects.
