INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN COMPETITION

NATIONAL CONCERT HALL

``TAUTOS NAMAI``

V. MYKOLAIČIO-PUTINO G. 5, VILNIUS / TAURO KALNAS

Europos kultūrą nusako skambantis garsas. Jei jis yra širdingas, jei jis darnus, jei jis tyras, garsas įkvepia ir telkia žmones į vieną darniai gyvuojančią visumą. Būtent tokį tikslą mes ir keliame: mes norime, kad Vilniuje skambėtų garsas, kuris aukščiausio vertės standarto skambesio galia telktų ir ugdytų visuomenę. Mes norime, kad Nacionalinė koncertų salė Vilniuje taptų pasaulyje atpažįstame Europos kultūros kūrimo vieta.

Vilnius is the capital of the Republic of Lithuania and the centre of cultural life in Lithuania. The city is home to the key professional musical culture establishments such as the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society, the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre and the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. Vilnius is also home to Lithuania’s two key symphony orchestras, the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra and the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra. But Vilnius currently lacks a concert hall suitable for symphony music complying with the global standards applicable to the natural acoustics of such venues and having a capacity of at least 1,500 seats.

For these reasons, Lithuanian professional music teams do not have an opportunity to present their art of performance to the Lithuanian audience at the premium level, and the infrastructure of concert halls available in Lithuania does not satisfy the requirements normally applicable under international standards. Lithuanian performers lack conditions for quality work, while listeners are unable to hear premium level performances of symphony music in natural acoustics venues.

In 2017, the Government of Lithuanian Republic approved the Plan for the impolementation of the Governmental program. The need for a National Concerts Hall, that would correspond to the global standards for the mu sical hall, was listed there. In 2018, the Minister of Culture of LIthuania and the Mayor of Vilnius CIty had signed an Agreement of Intent to create the infrastructure for all the services that a National Concerts Hall should pro vide. An exceptional spot in Vilnius – the top of the Tauras hill, V. Mykolaicio Street – was selected as the most suitable location for the National Concerts Hall. The new Concerts Hall will replace a derelict building Trades’ Unions’ Palace.

Announcing an open international architectural competition for an architectural concept of the National Concerts Hall, Vilnius City Municipality expects to get innovative, quality, unique architectural ideas. The National Concerts Hall should reach the highest standards of acoustic and functional characteristics, and to become a new landmark in Vilnius cityscape.

GOALS OF THE COMPETITION
