Tirana Architecture Weeks (TAW) is an international academic, professional, and cultural event organized biannually by POLIS University, aimed at promoting international knowledge linked to art and architecture practices, city sciences and research activities, starting from the Albanian context and reaching out to the international scene, positioning Tirana and, more in general Albania, in the European and World map. TAW is one of the founders of Future Architecture Platform.
The previous editions successfully accomplished the mission of exposing Albania to the international Architecture and Design panorama, with important guests such as Peter Eisenman, Kengo Kuma, Farshid Moussavi, Philippe Rahm Marcos Novak, Mario Botta, Matias del Campo, Mario Cucinella, Winy Maas, Massimiliano Fuksas, Wolf Prix, Francine Houben, and François Roche, to mentions just a few.
