Historically, Kosovo's industry has gone through various stages of its development and fully dependent on the economic system. In general, Kosovo's industrial development was based on the exploitation of raw materials and their processing to a certain degree, but not to a satisfactory degree of processing and finalization. The diversity of industrial building design must always be in line with the requirements of technological processes, economic development, environmental protection and sustainable social development. The study presented in this paper investigated the visual organization of industrial functional compositions, focussing on urban design issues, principles according to the Gestalt laws of grouping, and sustainable urban design. The research method consists of empirical observation through the wide Prishtina industrial zone, with an accent to the urban shapes, perception, and compositional harmony as a contemporary reflection to the past decisions of Prishtina municipality. Furthermore, the conceptual findings from the results of this research will show the need and necessity of adopting the contemporary design strategies.
