The Pyramid of Tirana, a notorious building connected to the past, will no longer be like this, as work has recently begun on the transformation of this communist-era building into a multifunctional IT youth center.
Here is how Durham describes Tirana in the 1900s.
The Prime Minister Mr. Edi Rama, the mayor Mr. Erion Veliaj and the US Ambassador in Tirana Mrs. Juri Kim were present to see the start of the transformation.
This is a very ambitious project that lacked in Tirana which is expected to be finished in 2023. The Pyramid was created as a Musem for the Dictator Enver Hoxha, and was designed by his daughter who was the architect. Having this symbolic it has been the center of debates to destroy this building considering it as a communist symbol. But it is a very rare object, so keeping it, is a reminder of the past, but transforming its role is a fantastic idea, in accordance with the saying: reminding the past, building the future.
The pyramid will serve as a kind of incubator for businesses in the field of innovation, art and creativity. The innovation of revitalizing the center lies in the fact that the TUMO model is a new type of educational experience at the intersection of technology and design. Young people will be given the tools and knowledge they need to achieve their potential and they will be able to develop their learning skills to face the challenges of the 21st century. The TUMO Learning Program consists of self-employment activities, workshops and labs in 14 change programs under the supervision of the best experts from around the world.
