Manifesto The competition area is both a target and a test site at the same time. It is a small island in a relatively small historic city in Albania, the city center of which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There is a lot to tell about the city, its particular history and its architecture, but since it is not the scope of the brief to fall into those details, these explanations will be part of a separate document. The island itself, which is the site of this international competition, is a leftover asset neglected by the city but which nevertheless changes shape time after time because of the changes in river water flows.
