The process of continuous and unlimited growth in cities has produced negative effects, which materialize in the production of negative urban areas, abandoned spaces, and waste landscapes, together with areas that appear without a proper character, because of informal non-designed human processes. Having such situations in Tirana, we can think of this third landscape as room for the continuous evolution future, important to biodiversity, climate, and pollution mitigation. Indeed, these third landscapes -involved and closely linked to urban metabolism- being transformed, can improve the quality of the urban environment, on the one hand, the other also raises the current lack in quantity of urban open areas by recovering neglected spaces. But how can urban leftover spaces contribute to the total amount of open spaces within the city? The aim is to try -through a tactical approach that works on a new quality and livability of urban open areas, but especially on their relationship with third landscapes- to re-think each recovering area into a spatial and functional element of a network of urban open spaces that meets environmental, health and social needs. Also, breaking the ongoing expansion of the city's volumes with three green-blue-grey corridors east-west can keep an ecologic continuity and recover new pedestrian-bike mobility paths in favor of citizens.
