Redefine the existingAuthor: Eglė Kliučinskaitė

Challenging the notion put forth by architect V. Brėdikis that Good architecture may transform into beautiful ruins, I instead direct my attention towards existing beautiful ruins that serve as reminders of the architecture that once thrived, now somewhat forgotten, abandoned, and left unused. These structures occasionally adopt an entirely new essence, taking on natural forms, and are no longer at the service of humans. Instead, they are engulfed and embraced by nature.
Gazing upon these beautiful ruins inspires one to reminisce, and perhaps even search for, the hidden layers that persist in the building’s memory, layers that may remain imperceptible even today.
