Kauno Architektūros Festivalis



Vytautas Biekša is an architect and a graduate of the Vilnius Academy of Arts. Since 2007 he is leading the architectural bureau Processoffice. Together with colleagues, he has realized several important objects in the cultural field.


I understand the comprehension of the architectural field as a complex and time-consuming process. To grasp it, I chose to participate in it and endure the brutal power conjunctions shaping the cities (environments). We live in a moment (maybe it is always the same moment) when there is a war in Europe for cultural heritage and identity. It is obvious that in architectural reality cultural heritage and identity is not that dramatic, however, we can uncover intriguing parallels and recurrences between the past and present by looking through historical city layers.
