Having as a starting point an analysis on urban services and environment quality in Tirana City, the design research will focus on developing inclusive solutions for accessibility issues, conceived to contribute to the definition of a strong visual identity for the city as a whole , whilst allowing the individuality of discrete areas within. By contributing to the character of the place and by answering to social needs, products like urban furniture, lighting, signage, bus stops could effectively work both as visual landmark that states the character of an urban space and as an instrument for social inclusion. The workshop will try to define design solutions able to develope a balance between the function and the visual identity, providing good accessibility, confort, and easiness of orientation and wayfinding, for the greatest part of Tirana population.

Abstract

Having as a starting point an analysis on urban services and environment quality in Tirana City, the design research will focus on developing inclusive solutions for accessibility issues, conceived to contribute to the definition of a strong visual identity for the city as a whole , whilst allowing the individuality of discrete areas within. By contributing to the character of the place and by answering to social needs, products like urban furniture, lighting, signage, bus stops could effectively work both as visual landmark that states the character of an urban space and as an instrument for social inclusion. The workshop will try to define design solutions able to develope a balance between the function and the visual identity, providing good accessibility, confort, and easiness of orientation and wayfinding, for the greatest part of Tirana population.
