The 1912 recognition of Albania as an entity on the international horizon is paralleled by our own initial encounter with this Balkan enigma (some fifteen years after the collapse of Albanian Communism). In both cases there were pre-histories to be taken on board and post-histories to be orchestrated. These are the parallel subjects of this book. As one of three architectural offices Bolles+Wilson were invited to the international competition for a Masterplan to re-script the central axis of Tirana.
