The transformation of the Pyramid in Tirana is considered one of the 12 best architectural projects in the world.
The well-known magazine in the field of architecture “Dezeen” has also included Pyramid, where thousands of young people are waiting to learn coding languages, getting a safe profession for the workplace.
“Studio MVRDV has several projects to complete in 2023, but one of the most unusual is the repair of a 1980s pyramid in Tirana. The depreciated building, known as the Pyramid of Tirana, will be reopened as a youth center, containing studios and classrooms for young Albanians. “It was originally built in 1988 as a museum dedicated to the former communist dictator, Enver Hoxha, but it was closed three years later after the fall of communism in the country,” the article states.
The educational institution TUMO Tirana will run the Pyramid after its renovation. It will offer preschool educational programs for 12 – 18 year olds, such as robotics, animation, game development, music and film.
