This book rests on the theoretical reflection of the image, thought, and drawing, that ‘use’ error as an inventive resource, giving considerations about the forces that hold sensorial, conceptual, and bodily dimensions of the image, without which we believe the analysis and practice of drawing cannot progress. To this end, there is the need to articulate mental and material levels of the image and, above all, the space that houses its interaction by a kind of darkness, offering access to the repertoire of creative ‘bewilderment’. For that purpose, we run up the caliber of the image that precedes the hand movement intrinsically linked to error, favouring new ways that, rather than ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, positively motorize the invention process. The aim is to develop the idea that error can be understood as a creative feature that praises chance and places depiction and expression (of thought) in a space and time for the performance of an eye that can see outside, inside, and ‘beyond’ - the ‘third eye’ that the hand (gesture) uses to draw the novelty. Only by integrating error processes and logics, it is possible to analyse the ways in which drawing matrices react to it. Because ‘mastering’ a specific anatomy of error assumes controlling both drawing (or its possibility) and the modes of ordering and sequencing the layers of thought, it is considered, the inventiveness, ‘representable’ in two additional fields of analysis, remarking the impressive drawing classes, in order to evaluate the respective legitimacy within its consecration, along with the drawing that effectively ‘draws’ (expressively). As an object, fact or testimony, drawing always implies a choice; a choice that only happens within the range of ‘wrong’ acts; a representation which is based and fixed neatly in a symbolic act and eventually extends the luminous half of it.

Capital of Albania by chance, Tirana has attracted international attention for its difficult transition after the fall of the Communist regime. Anarchy and disorder reigned during that historical transition, as excellently portrayed in Gianni Amelio’s film 'Lamerica' (1994), documenting Albania’s epic mass migration. Meanwhile, Tirana’s urban structure has exploded: the city has been literally overrun, demanding all of Albania’s resources and attention. Its arduous period of contemporary formation has been shaped by an absence of models, as it was caught between rapidly shedding its socialist identity and a superficial assimilation of Western ways. Lacking dominant cultural anchor points, though likewise no preconceptions, particular experimental approaches to urban planning have been taken, possible developments have been explored, and urban renewal strategies tested out. Now that the early days of its youth are bygone, the Albanian capital has reached maturity in its metropolitan consciousness, its population has almost tripled, and its size has burgeoned beyond all bounds.This book aims to understand a process of architectural and urban identity-building in progress, document its contradictions, and suggest a frame encompassing layers of landscape, history, political propaganda, and spatial consequences. These overlapped perspectives create an original, multi-layered, and never-linear reading. Though perhaps informal, such an approach is well suited to translating a city as complex and elusive as Tirana, one that has shown so much resistance over the years to any form of control.Beyond its European aspirations, its globalized camouflage, and its dialectical exercises in planning, Tirana’s path is often circular and keeps on returning to a Tirana that has always been there in its never-ending uncertainty and syncretic brilliance.
