Description

This paper reveals the precious contribution of Kolë Idromeno, as a versatile artist, whose work and activity constitutes a great heritage for the Albanian National Culture. Among his donated skills in art, what mostly attracts is the ensemble of the neoclassical buildings he designed during the first decades of the last century. His architectural projects are defined as second category monuments and ‗exhibited‘ along the museum streets protected by law. The research design makes use of different methods, as the fieldwork, data collection, and review of documents consisting in both qualitative and quantitative information. Qualitative and quantitative methods include basically these different sources of information: interviews with representative of public institutions, owners of villas designed from Kole Idromeno, review of documentary such as studies, documents and periodicals written during the last century, field works which include the survey and the drawing process of architectural features of the buildings, check and evidence of today preserved work of Idromeno on site. It was little studied Idromeno‘s contribution in architecture. Our aim is to check out several villas in Shkodra designed by this artist-architect and present their detailed architectural draft, including their renovation or revitalization project.

Kole Idromeno and the Neoclassical Architecture in Shkodra

Prishtina, Kosovo

This paper reveals the precious contribution of Kolë Idromeno, as a versatile artist, whose work and activity constitutes a great heritage for the Albanian National Culture. Among his donated skills in art, what mostly attracts is the ensemble of the neoclassical buildings he designed during the first decades of the last century. His architectural projects are defined as second category monuments and ‗exhibited‘ along the museum streets protected by law. The research design makes use of different methods, as the fieldwork, data collection, and review of documents consisting in both qualitative and quantitative information. Qualitative and quantitative methods include basically these different sources of information: interviews with representative of public institutions, owners of villas designed from Kole Idromeno, review of documentary such as studies, documents and periodicals written during the last century, field works which include the survey and the drawing process of architectural features of the buildings, check and evidence of today preserved work of Idromeno on site. It was little studied Idromeno‘s contribution in architecture. Our aim is to check out several villas in Shkodra designed by this artist-architect and present their detailed architectural draft, including their renovation or revitalization project.
