    Odd, but accessible
    This sculpture, not far from Skanderbeg Square was designed by a famous Japanese architect. It is rather quirky and accessible, but I did not find it awe inspiring. It does, however, add to the rich variety of architecture that can be seen across Tirana.

    While in Tirana, Albania I came to see this modern art installation outside the National Gallery of Arts. You can walk around it and climb or just sit and relax. It was a nice peaceful area.I really enjoyed it. From what I have read it was once in my capital city of London but I never knew. Reja was designed by a Japanese architect: Sou Fujimoto. The structure of the installation, the white transparency, creates a geometric form that looks like a cloud and it looks as if mist is rising in the park in front of the Gallery

    An interesting piece of outside modern art. You can go inside it and sit and contemplate but probably not for that long. Probably worth a look at when walking around the city centre. The murals on the walls behind are equally interesting to me!

I at least did walk over and climb the structure. It is in the beauty is in the eye of the beholder category of buildings. A bit more reading material might be helpful re the artist's goal. I would not go out of my way to see it but it is in step with many of the new architectural buildings in the city. Hey, at least there is no entry fee for 'The Cloud Pavillion'

This sculpture, made by a famous Japanese architect is a piece of modern art installation set in a small lawn across the Rinia park.
Imo, it's worth detouring, it rather looks like some kind of construction work, but they say it's art, so conclude yourself.

Another one of those modern art structures which is quite imaginative and is meant to reflect the connectivity of tech and cloud networks. It is all in the eye of the beholder. At least it is not just a banana duck-taped to the wall!

Fujimoto has brought us a piece from Japan. Every time we need to feel some modern and functional architecture we visit this place.
It has steps to seet and place for small parties.

The whole thing is a bit neglected. It is dirty and needs a good clean. On the whole a bit bleh! Our kids spent about 10 mins climbing and was done.

Worth a visit albeit for 10 minutes, it would be nice to bring a pack of cards and enjoy the space for an hour. The art museum (a few €) behind is also worth visiting to see true communist-style paintings giving a very vivid insight into the era post 1991. This cloud feature is great!!

It was said that the sculpture was made and donated by a Japanese artist, which was a surprise. It's definitely fun to see. You can go up, around, and inside the structure to look at different facets of it.

This is an interesting sculpture outside the art museum. To really appreciate it you should climb up inside of its scaffolding. The day I was there there was a small business meeting going on in the empty space inside the base of the sculpture ... pretty neat actually.
