The complex is designed as an urban system, physically completing / starting and systemizing the longest Lithuanian “street” – urban axis Klaipėda – Vilnius. This is the beginning and the end as well – the constant movement along the set trace – nouns: imprint; mark, sign, dash, note, path, trace. Moving along this trace not only the imprint is left, the shadow is dropped but also the environment is investigated, it is captured everything that is memorable. When moving along the longest Lithuanian „street“, one can see the most characteristic cultural landscapes of the country, one can also pass through the most important urban centers – that is like the section of Lithuania. The similar task is raised to the designed complex: when moving in the building the traveler can see the exceptional nature of Kuršių Nerija, silhouettes of Klaipėda and the Baltic Sea.
