Hi there, I am Joni Baboci; a planner, architect and all-around urban enthusiast currently working on getting getlayer.xyz off the ground.

I spent the last decade working in the public sector, serving as the General Director for Planning and Urban Development for the City of Tirana. My previous experiences include stints in the private sector and leading a groundbreaking planning and architecture start-up for the Albanian Government nicknamed Atelier Albania. I have consulted for various multilateral and cultural institutions including the World Bank and the Triennale of Milano.

I have meddled with planning and development at different scales working on the national plan of Albania, the regional plan for the coast of the country, the regional plan for Tirana-Durres region - as well as the Development Framework for the City of Tirana TR030.

I like cities, books & twitter.
