Global Architectural Forms in the Context of Vilnius

Romualdas Kučinskas


Manifestations of global architecture in the city of Vilnius are analysed on the example of Guggenheim Hermitage Museum. Peculiarities of the architecture’s origin are discussed. Global architecture is different from local architecture by preconditions of its origin, possibilities of realisation and its architectural expression. However, irrespective of these circum­stances Lithuanian creative societies and individual architects evaluate global architecture from local positions. They use conceptions and metaphors formed in the local environment. Therefore, evaluations assume a negative connotation.
