Interpretation of Historical Possession in the Forms of Wood Architecture

Master's Project, Tutor: Vytautas Biekša, Petras Vestartas

The object of the master's thesis research is wooden connections in timber architecture. The goal is to understand their role in creating a new architectural language and to answer the question: Is it possible to discover innovations in the process of creating timber architecture by conceptualizing the role of the connection itself? The thesis explores timber architectural systems and their application in innovative timber architecture, seeking a connection between the past, present, and future. Attention is given to the possibilities of digital technologies, which are applied in the creative process with the aim of creating high-quality, sustainable, and modern transformations in the field of architectural heritage. A strategy is developed, choosing a valuable but neglected urban space as a platform for experimental assembled timber structures, which not only create a new public space but also open opportunities for experimentation, testing, evaluation, and the search for a new architectural language in timber architecture.
