The Farka Lake (Liqeni i Farkës) is an artificial lake in the southeast part of Tirana, 9.6 km away from the city center.

Outside political pressures, uncontrolled sprawl of the urban fabric, and the anxiety of collecting ‘free space’ in an area that is continuously increasing its land value are just some of the factors that are menacing its equilibrium.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is pleased to announce its 7th International Student Tall Building Design Competition. The goal of the competition is to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society. The age of the tall building as a single iconic piece of sculpture, standing in isolation from its surroundings, is coming to an end. Designers have a responsibility to ensure that these permanent urban structures engender a future-oriented urban response to the greatest challenges of our time: unprecedented population growth; mass urbanization; climate change; environmental degradation; social, political and economic change; and the rapid advance of myriad technical innovations.
