Coloured Landmarks in Tirana Impact on Life Quality and Costs

Gjergj Ruci [2]

Abstract: As many post?communist cities, Tirana presents its visitors with soviet style buildings/concrete ? apartment blocks. These buildings were a solution for the housing problem in the city. This paper aims to analyse the relationship between these blocks, their inhabitants, and the city. Multi?storey buildings are a form of identity loss for their inhabitants but in meantime it has opened a new window of opportunity in the real estate market in Albania. Once again, architecture, even on the slightest side of it connects people immensely with their everyday affairs.

Keywords: urban identity, soviet style architecture, social memory, concrete, housing
