Why the book is worth reading?
At first glance, it may seem that during the period of independence, Lithuanian architecture evolved more than during the whole 20th century. In the future, this assumption might be confirmed or denied, but the truth is, that these twenty years were very significant for the country’s architecture. This book is the first attempt to gather knowledge, subjective opinions and experiences of what has happened in Lithuanian architecture during the period.
