Studies to understand if the dwelling unit built after 90`does meet or not the demands of the family nowadays.

The 90` brought a political overthrow followed by social economic changes. The past two decades Albania has experienced dramatic socio-political changes and was found unprepared in the urban policies aspect resulting in illegal and chaotic construction.The shift from the communist regime, with its well-expressed ideology, to a very liberated approach, happened in a lack of planning and in a lack of control on implementation. All this largely testified in urban and architecture product. It has also resulted in appearance of phenomena like informality, stock apartment, gated communities, etc. In this fast and massive development, the residential entity was most affected. This thesis question which are the dynamics of post 90` housing while facing the new challenges and threats? The family structure as one of the main component with a great weight in the dwelling design nowadays is more dynamic and its needs have changed. How much has the new dwelling evolved after 90`? Does it meet the real needs of nowadays family demands?
