GJIROKASTRA: World Heritage Site


  • Brief development
  • Design management
  • Project advocacy
  • Project fundraising

We worked extensively for the Government of Albania on a series of projects leading to the award of World Heritage Site and Museum City status for the historic city of Gjirokastra in southern Albania. Work involved managing the application from initial scoping and project definition exercises through brief development and interpretive planning to business planning and risk assessments. As a result of this we were asked to undertake similar work for the city of Dures, one of the most ancient and economically important cities of Albania.
