The university campus is home to the famous french school of digital innovation. It is located near Tirana’s airport. The campus consists of the IT dedicated faculty and the dormitories. The tectonic articulation of the buildings is expressed through the exposed concrete and the volumetric shifting. The faculty has a great ecological performance. It features passive systems through natural lighting and ventilation with a reduction of energy by the high levels of insulation and high performance windows. Vertical operable sunshades are placed alongside the window glazing for an optimal sunlight control.

The green roof of the faculty and local use of materials reduce and minimize internal and external pollution. Together with the solar panels, they form a combined solar collection and rainwater collection system. The generation of energy by the solar panels contribute to the overall building efficiency. The buildings use a low footprint of the building plot. As a result, 72 % of the campus area is free for outdoor activities and landscape development. The structure of the faculty uses a post-tensioned slab system, thus eliminating most of interior beams.
