General masterplan

The “vision” for the future of Tirana from now until 2030 (TR030) could be defined, in large part, as a plan for landscape recovery. This is a kind of “kaleidoscopic city” that can now, however, rely on a new instrument which may allow more coordinated and comprehensive management. TR030 is made up of three “containers”: a metropolitan Fresco based on ten main themes (biodiversity, polycentrism, diffuse knowledge, mobility, water, geopolitics, tourism, accessibility, agriculture and energy); an Atlas consisting of thirteen strategic projects located in the real landscape and a Chart of rules formulated around five metabolic systems (nature, infrastructure, city, agriculture and water). The strategy relies on the creation of gaps to generate public space, as well as on nature and farming to absorb the diversity and complexity within the new city limits. The relationship with nature is a theme envisaging various strategies: a continuous ring of woodland around the metropolis, including parks and protected nature reserves that will preserve and boost the existing biodiversity; new environmental corridors along the Lanë, Tiranë and Erzen rivers; a green belt (the new 4th ring-road) around the centre of Greater Tirana, functional as a linear public space and as a link for the transport network as well.
