Rr. Ndre Mjeda 40, Tirana 1023, Albania
Psychogeographical Delves was born in September 2017, when Arba Bekteshi and Fiona Mino decided to emphasize the loss of affectivities in Tirana and carry out psychogeographical walks. A series of schizocartographies have been produced since then. Melpomeni Nelaj joined the group later on and brought her visual expertise. The collective has published for entanglements: experiments in multimodal ethnography and aims to become more representational in its work.

Tirana Garden-City of Tomorrow


Vernacular gardens as de-growth

Tirana Garden-City of Tomorrow


Vernacular gardens as de-growth
This project makes the case for a possible future transposition of garden affectivities in Tirana.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

The project highlights aspects of the Tirana garden, as a multiplicity of aesthetic, sensory and biological characteristics forming a single typology, that tend to the needs and of its keepers. The Tirana vernacular garden is approached as a narrating process that folds and unfolds in its own continuity. This garden exists as a vernacular embodiment, - its many location forming a single sensorial space, an expression of its caretakers. The garden feeds and soothes.
This project wants to subvert the current urban development discourse making the case for vertical gardens in high-rise buildings. We argue that this embodied relationship resists the usual development processes and stands for sustainability and de-growth. We want build up on our psychogeographical walks and analyses that have stemmed from them, so that to reevaluate the Tirana gardens as a cultural component of the city, via a series of multidisciplinary and site-specific interventions.
