Nemuno7 – one of the 5 best Lithuanian architectural objects of 2021-2022!
On the 13th of October the award ceremony of the Lithuanian Architects’ Union’s competition “Looking at Yourself 2021-2022” took place at Vilnius Town Hall, where the best works realised in Lithuania in 2021-2022 were revealed. Nemuno7 is among the five winners selected by the international jury!
According to jury member Ieva Zibarte, board member of the Latvian Association of Architects, writer and curator, “the quality of Nemuno7 lies in its undefined nature. The space has its own rules and can be discovered in different ways. This project demonstrates how with limited means it is possible to make meaningful things and how temporary architecture can be used to prototype the future.
Congratulations to the project architect Sigita Kundrotaitė – Savickė and the landscape designers, Ula Marija Bujauskaitė and Rasa Povilionienė!
