Vilnius: short stories
‘Vilnius: short stories’ is a design exploration, proposing design strategy and details for three new tram stations in Vilnius city, Lithuania. Project aims to look at these small pieces of infrastructural architecture as mediators of different civic spaces. Therefore suggesting that small station typology can be contextual and subject for spatial cross-programming, as opposite to a widespread practice of homogenous and minimized designs for various small scale station.
As a way to approach this, project primarily focuses on narrative based design methodology, where architectural and mythical setting of a place constructs a script for a new intervention. Further on, three ‘urban acupunctures’ are created, vastly focusing on spatial cognition of the sites. All to imagine a gradient of civic spaces that the new tram infrastructure create, highlight or complement to.
