Abstract

Over the last 23 years, Tirana has seen dramatic transformations. In particular, the semi-urban area of Tirana North ( the area between the city and the airport) has been gradually developed without planning or even any appropriate infrastructure, by converting agricultural land into informal small-scale housing sprawl. Surrounded by important infrastructure axes, but without any proper connection to the city, this area seem particularly isolated. The river, Another internal boundary in the area, the presence of which is almost not perceived because of the pollution and the lack of infrastructure between the two banks of the river, caused further fragmentation of the prawl.
