Tirana, 2016. The TID Tower is a new tower right in the centre of Tirana, designed by the Belgian firm 51n4e. The tower, which contains offices, shops and a large hotel, represents the rapid economic and social growth that the city, and Albania as a whole, is experiencing. However, it also shows the gap between the new/future Tirana and its surroundings, which are struggling to keep up. The tower gives a bird’s eye view of the city, to imagine what will become of it, for better or for worse.
