Foreign Influences Designing Albanian Schools Architecture

Ledita Mezini

Abstract: Throughout history, Albania was a battlefield of several wars, assaulted from other countries and always struggling to survive and preserve its traditions, language and culture. Invasions happened through guns and battles but also through the extent of foreign languages and culture in education. The education sector and structures that hosted it, passed through stages of transformations, developments and regressions dependent on the course of history and the forces of foreign countries shaping it. The main objective of this research is to highlight the Albanian school buildings through two parallel points of view an outlook through the course of history and analyzed as structures. This article tries to explore the changes that occurred in educational buildings in Albania. It focuses on the influences, problems and issues that have emerged, during the several invasions and how these influences have affected the architecture of Albanians schools. This analysis is followed by a discussion of the architectures development and the typology, standards, structures and shapes of this category of buildings focusing mostly on the last century, trying to fill the gap of history and knowledge for this important group of edifices.
