International competition for an iconic cultural building, new symbol of independent Lithuania.
The light-filled rectangular array of slim white columns sheltering the glowing amber inner volume over a reflection pool was inspired by metaphors of a hilltop temple and a pine forest. As one moves up the hill towards the “temple”, it unveils itself from different angles.
Designed in collaboration with Arup, Main Hall provides hi-end natural acoustics. The Small Hall is transformable for a broad range of events. There are exhibition and co-working spaces, cafes, shops and outdoor activities.
