We are a non-governmental, non-profit organisation, bringing together a network of people, initiatives and ideas, expanding the public’s understanding of architecture, and applying theoretical and practical architectural competences in a wide range of fields. The flexible, open and proactive structure of the organisation helps to adapt to changing needs and circumstances, while the dynamic arrangement of the community is supported by the principles of volunteering and sharing. While actively working in Lithuania, we continuously expand and strengthen our cooperation with foreign experts and institutions, and implement projects internationally.

Currently, we organise open architecture weekends Open House Vilnius and Pastatai kalbaTravelling Architecture Workshops, conversation series A Pokalbiai, the architecture criticism platform Aikštėje, the mentoring programme Experiments’ PlatformMicro-exhibitions in the cultural centre SODAS 2123, and the annual Architektūros fondas’ Forum. In collaboration with other organisations, we also contribute to projects such as Dance Plus City and the symposium Politics of Space. Furthermore, we participate in international networking activities, organising projects on the European architecture platform LINA and presenting our programme at the Open House Worldwide festival. Lastly, we are the initiators and coordinators of the international cooperation project Open House Europe, co-funded by the European Union.

Our vision is a curious, critically thinking society that discusses architecture in a constructive way, and is able to appreciate, cherish and create architecture together. In such a society, responsibly produced architecture responds to the relevant needs of spatial change, and we, as an agent that initiates a dialogue between society and architecture, articulate meaningful processes, develop an infrastructure open to learning and collaboration, and contribute to the change of the discipline as well as to the development of society.

Architektūros fondas was established in 2004 on the basis of the organising committee of the exhibition Looking at Yourself, which took place at the end of 2003. The organisation was founded by architects Audrius Ambrasas, Audrys Karalius, Gintaras Klimavičius, Gintaras Čaikauskas, Sigitas Kuncevičius, Darius Osteika, Rolandas Palekas, Saulius Pamerneckis, Marius Šaliamoras, Paulius Trimonis and Linas Tuleikis.

Since its establishment, Architektūros fondas has been led by Darius Osteika, Julija Reklaitė and Sandra Šlepikaitė, and is currently headed by Martynas Germanavičius.

Architektūros fondas was the first organisation to represent Lithuania at the Venice Architecture Biennale, where, together with Latvians and Estonians, it presented the Baltic Pavilion in 2016, and produced the Swamp Pavilion in 2018.
