ART AND EDUCATION CENTER OF RUPERT IN VILNIUS

Rupert is project based multidisciplinary educational, residential and exposition centre. Lithuanian architect Andrius Ambrasas designed the new Rupert building which was opened in July 2013. There are exhibition and projection spaces in the building. Constant lectures are held in Rupert, and often Lithuanian and foreign artists, curators and cultural arts managers reside here. The architectural design ideas were mainly inspired by the resort-like environment and art creation mysteries. Wood finish makes the building camouflage itself in the nearby pine forest. Visitors are inspired to look into the world of arts through a keyhole as there is only one way for the light to enter the building on the main exterior side of the structure. In search for harmony with nature and architecture, luminaires should not be visible with plain eye. Gaudre manufactured ceiling recessed, surface mounting and pendant luminaires Vindo, featuring distinct geometrical forms, were used for the project.
