À propos de cet article


The purpose of this research is to disclose the architectural features of cities and towns during the period of Lithuania’s reconstruction in 1918–1925. Therefore, the features are analysed according to three criteria – the functional needs of a newly founded state, its technical capacities and stylistic preferences – by granting an acceptable stylistic shape to buildings. The results of this will help to identify the state’s functional needs in consideration of losses caused by WWI to a country that could not be reconstructed in full from the then state budget; thus, from the very beginning the focus was on reconstruction of public buildings and residential houses, out of necessity.
