WoHo Systems for a design competition in Tirana, Albania

WoHo was part of a design proposal for a mixed-use development in Tirana, for a competition hosted by USLUGA. The proposal brings together urban and landscape qualities to build a state-of-the-art cultural platform for living, working, and coming together in different ways. Special attention is paid to the ecology of the project, both during the construction and operation of the building. Environmental and material performance are carefully designed to balance quality, cost, and sustainability, in both short and long terms; and a strategy of standardization of building components and off-site fabrication is conceived to enable circularity.
