Prishtina is Everywhere

After NATO-led KFOR troops ended civil war in Kosovo (1999), an instant building boom changed the capital Prishtina dramatically. Within a few years its population doubled, partly as a consequence of an influx of returning refugees. Local investors profited, creating quick returns on ‘hit and run’ projects. On the fringes of the city ‘maverick urbanism’ had a different face: family clans invested family capital in large houses, built on farmland. The result was a random spread and development of the city, causing serious functional and structural problems for the future.

Mobility Center Project in Ferizaj

The ‘International Spatial Design Competition for the Mobility Center Project’ sought ideas for a new transport interchange and city spatial plan for the city of Ferizaj, situated in southern Kosova. The objective was to produce a catalyst for the regeneration of the urban centre by integrating all modes of transport into a Mobility Centre – linking this regional city to neighboring capitals.
