SIKON is an annual contest for the students of architecture which has become a phenomenon. Its origins can be traced back to 1983 when now-famous architects Audrius Ambrasas, Gintaras Čaikauskas and Audrys Karalius out forward the idea of organising the very first contest. The contest is free from academic restrictions and allows one see one’s own artwork in a broader, bolder and more conceptual manner. Since 2004, the contest has been organised as a workshop in many different locations in Lithuania, and has sought to address various problematic issues and discuss topics of interest.
