vienna-based office coop himmelb(l)au has won the competition to design
'the new parliamentary complex of the republic of albania' in the capital city of tirana.
the 28,000 m2 project will be the first building by the internationally-recognized
practice in albania.


situated along the compositional axis of the city, the design aims to provide a strong
urban statement as the newest addition to tirana's urban fabric. expressing a decidedly
contemporary architectural character, the building serves as a visual landmark for
the locals as well as a bold representation of the albanian republic's  future political center.

'our design for the new parliament in tirana, albania, stands for the transparency
of democracy,' says wolf d. prix, design principal and CEO of coop himmelb(l)au.
incorporating a number of different building elements, the holistic design aims to
include fundamental democratic values such as openness, transparency and
public co-determination.

at the core of the center, the parliamentary hall is accommodated by a glazed cone
that peeks over the office building, which is wrapped in a curtain-like exterior skin
made from panels of perforated steel. a wide public stair at the base of the building
leads the public to the landscaped roof of the plinth building, serving as an expansive
elevated plaza where views into the parliamentary hall are established. the main entrance
to the complex is through a solid conic form that acts as the counterpart to the transparent
parliamentary hall.

in order to provide optimal environmental conditions in an energy efficient manner,
a number of passive concepts are incorporated into the final design of the building:
the careful configuration of the forms reduce the use of fossil fuel while the dynamic
second skin of the office building drastically improves the building's performance
related to daylight intake, views, solar control, glare and noise protection,
thermal insulation and natural ventilation.
