University building, whose form is characterized by compact parallelepipeds united to each other, gives the impression of a fortress and evokes the reminiscences of the traditional Albanian tower performed in terms of modernism, where Gherardo Bosio oscillates between the memories of glorious Roman ancient times featuring arches and colonnades and a more rational sense of Florentine architecture. The newborn style brought in Albania for the first time the advantages of reinforced concrete completing the entire complex with the sports complex by building near it the Olympic Stadium with the grand entrance whose frontal façade is decorated with sculptures.
