Urban Neighborhood Regeneration through Reading the Evolution of Urban Form in the City of Tirana

Renilda Hyseni | Florian Nepravishta [5] | Kristalba Asanbejlli


Abstract: Urban morphology is the study of the physical form of cities and their characteristics. This article focuses on analyzing and reading the urban form of an old neighborhood in the city of Tirana. Thus form, resolution, and time constitute the three fundamental components of urban morphological research. These are present in all studies, whether by geographers or architects, and whether they focus on a medieval, baroque, or contemporary city. In Albania, the concept of urban morphology is almost unknown and not at all involved within the process of urban planning and regeneration practices. The reading process helps us to understand the urban complexity and development of this site over the years. Accordingly, through this way is possible to understand the adaptive capacity of the site and consequently brings an urban intervention methodology to promote sustainable urban development, replicable in urban areas with similar characteristics. In addition, this article aims at developing a methodology of finding a way of intervening and regeneration of the area through theoretical and methodological studies about urban form.


Keywords: adaptive capacity, complexity, urban morphology, urban form, regeneration
