A PIER IN THE LAKE

International Design Competition

 

 

«A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature» (Thoreau, H.D., 1954)

 

[RESULTS]

 

For Tirana Design Week 2019, we invited designers and architect to join the debate through the proposal of a ludic project – or installation – that could speculate about the issues presented above: those of UnCertainty and Non-Normativity.

The idea of the Committee was to foster the participants a Research Through Design approach to foresee possible future scenario for one iconic place within the municipality of Tirana, the Farka Lake (Liqeni i Farkës), that could be used as a catalyst to revitalize a currently underrated and depressed area.

 

Within the many projects submitted this year, only 6 were considered by the International Jury to be fulfilling the basic conditions to be evaluated and become part of the selected ones for the Competition.

 

In the end, the Jury - unanimously - decided to not give a First Prize because none of the proposals was recognized to be deserving the maximum amount of marks and did not match criteria set by the commission.

 

For this reason, a second and third prize, together with a mention of honor were given by the jurors to the other best projects within all the submissions.
