KAUNAS

 

A MASTERPLAN FOR THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE RIVER-FRONT INDUSTRIAL AREA

The historic City of Kaunas has a great urban structure. The competition site currently lacks these qualities. Our design builds upon these historic principals, with a contemporary interpretation. The site itself is extraordinary - great transit connections, views over the Neris River, and adjacencies to the castle. The key to our design is to preserve what is already great about the site, highlighting those elements, while providing high quality new spaces.
