The winning submission was made jointly by two Swiss architects, Mario Campi and Fabio Reinhart, and an Albanian architect, Agron Jano. Even though the photographs seem to have disappeared from the webpage containing the official announcement, they are available elsewhere, so here is the winning entry:
This structure is built onto the Parliamentary complex on Blvd. Dëshmorët e Kombit, one of the two main buildings currently used by the Parliament.
The aim of the competition, as stated in the original announcement is
...to select architectural, urban planning, and spatial ideas and solutions for the New Parliamentary Complex.
The competition aims to create the most functional design possible and deliver an optimal spatial and architectural solution, at a level commensurate with its function, for a dignified presentation of the new work in relation with its homologous institutions and to increase the caliber of the architecture and urban planning of the Capital, and especially its central axis.
The building as it currently exists is hardly outstanding, but relative to much of the terrible architecture and design in the city it has its merits. The changes being envisaged don't seem to me to represent an improvement.
The scale of the construction appears to completely overwhelm the older building, and its height is out of keeping with the other buildings on the Boulevard - the University, the Academy of Arts, the Palace of Congresses, the Presidential Residence, the Prime Minister's office, the Pyramid, even the Rogner Hotel.
Unfortunately the Boulevard has already been blighted by the truly ugly Twin Towers, but it seems a shame to move away from the more human scale of the existing structures along the street in pursuit of grand schemes.
On a different note, from the citizens' point of view, grand parliament buildings are never a good idea. Politicians already have too great a sense of their own importance and indispensability. It's not something to be encouraged.
The estimated cost of the project is 30 million EUR and since no international funders are going to stump up the money for this, it could be argued that the Government should be spending those funds on more important projects that benefit the people of Albania.
