This video presents the variety and dynamics of our initiatives and gives a glimpse into the vibrant context of different formats and approaches that thrive within the organisation. The new and not-yet-equipped space, where Architektūros fondas is finally setting up a home (after being a nomadic organisation for over 15 years) highlights the important moment of a new beginning, promising an exciting journey through the unknown via an experimental attitude towards architecture. We invite you to not only join the existing activities but also, looking from the perspective of care, to challenge, suggest and explore the tools, methods and ideas together.
