First International Conference on Architecture and Urban Design (1-ICAUD)

Deadline: 15 January 2012
Open to: everybody who is interested in architecture
Venue: 19 -21 April 2012

Epoka University in Tirana, Albania, is organizing the First International Conference on Architecture and Urban Design (1-ICAUD) which will be held at Epoka University in Tirana, Albania on April 19-21, 2012. An international audience of about 150 persons, including academics, practicing architects, urban designers, and planners is expected.


Over the past twenty years, Tirana, the capital of Albania, has evolved into a dense, compact, and vibrant city of almost one million people, full of shops, cafés, restaurants, music, colorful buildings, and street life. At the same time, it is choked with automobile traffic, its older façades are crumbling down, and the traditional housing stock is being eroded to make room for condominium buildings. Sustainable construction technologies are in their infancy. High-tech high-rise architecture is juxtaposed with small scale informal additions to communist-era housing units and pre-communist oriental and Western neoclassic homes.
