Lithuanian architecture in the spotlight

Author: Mieke, Posted: February 3rd, 2015

Lithuania
Land of the lush plains, meandering rivers and extensive forests. Therefore it's not surprising that the traditional architecture in Lithuania is wooden. Indeed, Lithuania of today is still rich with wooden architecture. A warm counterpart of the modern concrete, glass and steel structures that characterize contemporary architecture worldwide as also in present-day Lithuania.
 
To welcome Lithuania to the Eurozone, we hereby present you some great examples of modern architecture in Lithuania. From the brutalist architecture of Palace of Concerts and Sports to the wooden Rupert art center and the glass Baltic Hearts. These inspiring projects proof that Lithuania is not only the geographical centre of Europe *), but definitely one of the architectural hotspots of Europe as well.
