POLITBYRO (Paçarizi Architecture Studio)
Focuses on urban renewal through establishment of new regional identity. They develop an critical approach to the urbanism and architecture of Kosovo, with social and human responses. New density and diversity are proposed through micro interventions in Kosovar complex urban situations. Swiss touch and low-tech regional reinterpretations could be the definition of Politbyro’s, high quality, local production.
