International Competition/ Vilnius, Lithuania
The new concert hall perches on top of the hill which has the panoramic view to the new and old parts of Vilnius. Inspired by the traditional rooftops of Vilnius, the folded geometry of inclined wall planes and floor slabs blur the definition of inside and outside and create a place of movement. This enables the visitors to enjoy listening to impromptu concerts, seeing an exhibition, and eating and drinking without necessarily going into the mainconcert hall. Within the skin of the building, the main concert hall sits in the orientation to the cemetery and tree tops allowing the views and natural light coming through a high level window.
