Meeting: “Modern architecture in Vilnius”

Graphic with the name of the event.

September 14 at 6 pm


The complicated history of Vilnius has been recorded in its architecture. We invited you to a meeting about the book “Vilnius. 20th-21st centuries. Architectural Guide”.


At the turn of the 20th century, a provincial town on the western outskirts of Russia witnessed the development of Art Nouveau and regional architecture. In the interwar period, the capital of the voivodeship of the Second Polish Republic became home to modernist architecture. After the war, within the borders of the USSR, Vilnius was developed in the style of socialist realism, and after 1956, post-war modernism. With Lithuania regaining independence and Vilnius becoming its capital there emerged a local school of architecture drawing on Scandinavian models.


These periods and phenomena are discussed in a guide to 20th-century architecture in Vilnius edited by Marija Drėmaitė, Rūta Leitanaitė, and Julija Reklaitė, published in Polish by the Centre for Architecture in 2019. We invited you to join us for a meeting devoted to the complicated history of Vilnius recorded in its modern architecture.
