With such a diverse set of young minds, thinkers and creators around, the new Cultural and Science Center Building To   conclude,   the   roof   governs   the   infrastructure   strategy   and   is   the   driving   element   of   the   form   as   it   begins   to   act   as   a   buffer between   the   interior   and   the   exterior   of   the   building.   The   roof   has   three   functions;   one,   to   improve   the   interconnectivity   of   the site,   two,   to   create   pockets   of   space   in   between   each   bridge   that   intercepts   the   interior   circulation   for   access   to   the   outdoor spaces like the amphitheater and the playground, and lastly, to act as a canopy for the spaces below.
Along   with   this   notion   of   regional   needs   for   the   new   center,   the   provided   island   for   the   new   building   has   its   vast   open   nature   to embrace   the   new   idea   to   be   a   part   of   its   nature   ground.   The   island   is   the   main   bridge   to   connect   the   south   to   the   north   of   the Kaunas.   Its   function   is   quite   cultural   and   fundamental   to   maintain   its   natural   environment   yet   to   provide   activities   for   public.   To foster   those   mentioned   functions,   our   main   concern   has   been   decisively   driven   to   locate   the   new   building   into   the   center   of the   island   to   ease   the   approaches   for   people   from   both   the   south   and   the   north   region.   In   addition   to   its   location,   we   intend   to minimize the height of architectural form by visually open up the view to both directions.
In   order   to   enhance   the   idea   mentioned   above,   the   existing   roads   are   connected   each   other   at   the   central   location.   The   created central   core   becomes   the   source   of   the   function   to   begin   the   form   of   the   new   building   and   at   the   same   time   to   create   public space   around   it.   In   this   centralized   design   approach,   building   programs   are   allocated   accordingly   by   offsetting   the   circulation from   the   core.   Furthermore,   the   core   becomes   a   location   for   the   renewable   energy   retrofit,   a   solar   tree,   which   is   created   not only   for   gaining   electrical   power   but   also   for   public   views   by   providing   open   gallery   under   the   solar   tree   and   a   deck   at   the   tree top area.
To   further   explaining   of   solar   energy,   through   the   use   of   non-conventional   prism   solar   panel,   the   gaining   power   from   the   solar tree   will   supply   sufficient   electrical   power   enough   to   function   for   the   entire   building   for   heating,   cooling,   general   lighting   even in   such   a   rainy   and   gloomy   climate.   Besides,   the   solar   tree   at   the   center   of   the   building   make   the   circulation   to   be   as   fluid   and dynamic   as   possible.   As   one   enters   the   building   from   the   southwest   of   the   island,   one   is   greeted   with   a   spacious   well-lit   lobby that   magnetizes   the   visitor   and   invites   him/her   to   begin   their   journey   around   the   experiential   circulation   that   revolves   around the   center,   passing   the   cafeteria,   the   three   major   galleries   (human,   machine   and   nature)   as   well   as   the   plant   and   preparation space, the virtual laboratory and the flexible event spaces.
