MVRDV designs Albania’s tallest building with pixelated facade

Construction has started on a skyscraper in Tirana designed by Dutch firm MVRDV, set to feature a facade with a pixelated map of Albania at its centre.

With a height of 140 metres, Downtown One is set to become Albania’s new tallest building, ahead of the 91-metre-high Rajfi Residence.

The tower will be built on Bajram Curri Boulevard, a major east-west route through the city, facing Skanderbeg Square. It will contain a mix of commercial and residential units, some which will project out from the building’s facade.
