In 2001, Edi Rama, artist and mayor of Tirana, began to add color to buildings in the city of Tirana; these blocks of bright color became a visual manifestation of the possibility and need for change. The TRANS>UTOPIA Shelter is a depiction of this project, and a means of disseminating this gesture for change.
