The project was part of the general proposal for the study area enclosed between the Tirana-Durres freeway corridor, the road connecting the airport through the Berxull
node and the Kamza corridor. The decision to concentrate, at a later stage, on separate successive stripes of the area – cut diagonally from the Tirana_Durres to the Kamza
corridor, and approaching progressively the airport zone - was a strategic decision based on the fact that, after some considerations about the geographical and spatial
characterization of the area, it was clear that the complexity of the area demanded a closer observation. It is important to clarify that the stripes are not representing homogenous portions of the area, and
were not defined based on similar and/or consistent characteristics, rather on their capacity to give a sample cross-section, a typical selection, of the characteristic parts
and relationships typical of the area object of study. The stripes in fact contain - a portion of - all the anthropic and biophysical characterizations of the area.
Therefore while dealing with the scale of the extended study area, and always in line with the proposed general vision and the related Masterplan, the attention was focalized on a single stripe.
