CONTEMPLATION GARDENS ALONG THE BOULEVARD “MARTYRS OF THE NATION INSPIRED BY HOLY BOOKS AND RELIGIOUS COHABITATION
Atelier Albania, at the request of the Municipality of Tirana, Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Culture and mandated by the Office of the Prime Minister, announces an international landscape design competition, inspired by the most noble value of religious harmony that Albanians share with each other and the world, focused on the open spaces along Boulevard “Martyrs of the Nation” and main public spaces of the capital city, Tirana.
The Boulevard encompasses potential sites that may accommodate series of landscape interventions inspired by the holy books, but not only. The main purpose of this competition is to receive design proposals that will transform the linear open spaces of the boulevard, as well as other pockets of green spaces into landscape representations of the noblest cultural values that Albanians share through faith that is not only related to religious harmony, but harmony in general, as well. This is a unique opportunity to improve the city central public spaces through landscape design actions that seek spiritual comfort and contemplation.
