Abstract

In its current configuration, Prishtina, like the whole Kosovo, represents an ecosystem which is hostile to the design practice, especially with regards to a critical architectural approach. The institutions, still facing the complex State-building processes, were not able to affect positively the current deficient regulatory framework, which contributes to the marginalization of the designer.

In a context of sublegal customs and controversial systems of contracts awarding, far from the diffusion of parametric design systems, the challenge for the architects could be to conceive every accidental design occasion as a chance to contribute to a recoding, through new forms of knowledge production.

Moving from the temporary intervention The Yellow Pavillion, designed by the young firm architecture for humans, this visual essay explores ways of graphic systematization of the design process data. The installation hosted in Prishtina in June 2019 is used here instrumentally for a speculative hypothesis to define a new tool to support the empowerment of local designers.
