XX–XXI Century Lithuanian Urban Designers and Urban Planners on Urban Modelling in Western European Context

Agnė Vėtė (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania)


The intensification of anti-modernist ideas at the end of the XX c. encouraged a more active interest in the historic urban nucleus, the search for distinctive characteristics and modelling tools. Lithuanian urban designers have been forming their own view of cities and their modelling that is closely related to those of their Western European counterparts. The influence of Western Europe became even more significant after Lithuania regained its Independence. Consequently, in order to understand urban modelling in Lithuania one must understand Western context as well. The article discusses the most significant Lithuanian and Western European urban designers, examines their most important ideas on city modelling.
