Design Challenge:
The participants will have to create an iconic and globally recognizable international railway station project, offer a public transport service infrastructure that would represent Lithuania and Vilnius in compliance with the highest quality standards, form an attractive station square, and offer an idea for a viable and connecting Station district urban centre.

  • The goal is that any person who arrives by train or bus to the city immediately sees that it is a vibrant city of the future, and when they step into the station square or street, they will feel that the city is cozy, green, and inspiring.
  • Projects for the reconstruction of stations in the world’s capital cities usually take place only once in a century, so this is a historic opportunity to define a vision for future generations. The partnership between the City and the businesses for regeneration of the station district reflects our determination to open up previously closed industrial spaces for the city and to adapt them for the people. Here The desire is to create such spaces that correspond to the best examples of Western European railway stations, and the station would not only be a start or the end point of travel, but also a new attraction centre with leisure and service spaces, comfortable connections for pedestrians, cyclists, and everyone choosing comfortable and eco-friendly trips by train.
