Vlora Waterfront

This project is the result of a successful collaboration between a German architectural office and the city of Vlora in Albania. The project involved extensive cooperation between the designers, the government, and various ministries, including the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Culture. The goal of the competition was to design a promenade in the first phase and a bypass road in the second phase, while preserving the unique identity of the city.

As the former capital city of Albania, Vlora has a rich history and a unique character that needed to be preserved and highlighted in the design. The project aimed to create a connection between the seaside, landslide, and inner city, while also paying homage to the city's cultural heritage.

The competition resulted in a second-place finish for the design proposal, which was subsequently reworked and implemented by the designers. The promenade area has recently been opened, and it is a testament to the success of the project and the cooperation between the designers and the city of Vlora.

Overall, this project is a perfect example of how collaboration between different groups can lead to innovative and successful design solutions. The focus on preserving the identity of the city while creating a modern and functional space is a testament to the power of design to shape the spaces in which we live and work.
