Vilnius Concert Hall



“La nature est un temple où de vivants piliers
Laissent parfois sortir des confuses paroles
L’homme y passe à travers des forêts de symboles
Qui l’observent avec des regards familiers. 

Comme des longs échos qui de loin se confondent
Dans une ténébreuse et profonde unité,
Vaste comme la nuit et comme la clarté,
Les parfums, les couleurs et les sons se répondent…”

“Nature is a temple in which living pillars 
Sometimes give voice to confused words; 
Man passes there through forests of symbols 
Which look at him with understanding eyes.

Like prolonged echoes mingling in the distance 
In a deep and tenebrous unity, 
Vast as the dark of night and as the light of day, 
Perfumes, sounds, and colors correspond …”

(Charles Baudelaire, “Correspondences”, from “The Flowers of Evil”, 1861)


The concept

A vibration that produces the sound. MOVEMENT.

A compositional grid, RHYTHM, that restrains the continuous change of the space shape made by the vibration of the bodies close to each other’s.


Sounds and silences, ordered according a precise rule.

The National Concert Hall “Tautos Namai”

Full and empty composed in the rhythm grid



“La nature est un temple où … The Rhythm Grid de vivants pilier
Laissent parfois sortir des confuses paroles”

Sometimes gives voice to confused words  …“SOUNDS”

Tautos Namai is part of the nature, it can be crossed by passing through the gaps, like in the forest, giving continuity to the park.

Through the rhythm, the sounds = Transparency, Continuity

TAUTOS NAMAI, the National Concert Hall on the top of Tauras Hill,
in the park between the trees 

  • A park on the front
  • A park on the back
  • The city at the foot of the hill


The Building


It composes and it keeps together  the Voids – Transparent spaces and the Solids – Closed spaces

The Voids – Transparent spaces give continuity to the park that ascends Taura Hill

The MOVEMENT that generates the sound deforms the space, that is the RHYTHM
