Vilnius”
I wish that urban life was discussed and talked about more frequently. We must not only make projects but also base our judgement of a wider context and raise bold questions on the quality of the environment and cities we live in. Lithuanian universities should also change their stagnant and outdated position. Instead of simply teaching the trade, they should teach one to reason. Nonetheless, the discourse of discussion is already there and one can see more and more commendable initiatives for quality architecture. There have even emerged non-governmental sub-elderships that seek to take proper care of the neighbourhood environment, and the topic of the upcoming Architecture Fund lecture series is architectural policy. Matas Šiupšinškas’s straightforward texts and Elena Archipovaitė’s calls to mobilise the community of urbanism are of great importance. So, there is still much to be done.
