Project "Freedom impulses" is inovative/experimental event that will gather young architects to look at Kaunas main pedestrian street differently. Main goal is to create discussion between public, business, architects, government about new architecture in historical city spaces. Participants will be able to choose one of exsiting Laisves avenue buildings and create their own vision how it might look. Everyone is invited to create without limits, frames or boundaries without thinking how ideas could be implemented.
The essence of the forthcoming project Project "Freedom impulses" is to offer the most capable architects of the young generation (up to 40 years old) to submit their visions concerning the most "impaired" locations of Laisvės avenue in Kaunas: its buildings and their façades, planned annexes. Laisvės avenue was chosen for this project because it is the main heritage space of the town, and its newly constructed objects received strong opposition from the public. On the other hand, we can find many abandoned buildings and unmanaged places in this historical street, waiting for their build-up or functions to be eventually solved, therefore such responsible step needs especially serious preparation and careful weighing of all possible alternatives. Since these architectural visions are not meant for implementation, no limitations will apply except for one - artistic, i. e. the requirement to offer architecture of the best possible value, encompassing within itself the best view of the contemporary modern architecture on the historical environment.
