The Theth valley in northern Albania

Throughout several years the German technical cooperation supported the sustainable development and protection of areas in the Northern Alps of Albania. Among different activities the project supported the sustainable development of the Theth valley. This started to show increased interest among hiking tourists. The sudden increase of tourism provoked unplanned and unsustainable construction activities. Thus, the project developped in participatory communications a construction design code. This code took references on traditional architectural styles in order to maintain the typical aspects of this valley and avoid overconsumption of valuable natural landscape.

This photographic documentation shows the different fields of attention in form of five thematic posters.
