The Role of Unrealized Projects in Development of Social Consciousness

Indrė Gudelytė-Račienė (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania)


The article analyses the unrealized projects in the context of growing social consciousness/awareness. First of all the possibilities of society’s participation in designing processes are discussed in the framework of different historic periods. Further in the article, the correlations and interactions between the unrealized architectural projects and conscious society are analysed. To illustrate this, the resonance, attracting lots of attention, but failed projects, as well as projects orientated towards the formation of social consciousness are analysed. After summarizing the results of the research, a direct correlation between the unrealised projects of public importance and social self-consciousness, i.e. the society’s ability to concentrate, discuss and influence the governmental institutions, pass the determined decisions and precondition the unexpected course of architectural processes, has been established.
