Visit National Center for Physical Sciences and Technology @ 2019 April 27 Sat 10:00–18:00 (Saulėtekio av. 3, Vilnius)!
In 2016, the Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology opened its door on Saulėtekio Avenue, near Vilnius University, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, and their student residence halls. It is the largest scientific centre in the Baltic States. It is therefore no wonder that the building’s architectural solutions were dictated by scientific logic. The building was intended to symbolise the modern and innovative nature of science, as well as the harmony of the micro and macro worlds. Meanwhile, the hexagonal lattice of graphene – an allotrope of carbon and one of the most modern materials of the 21st century, dictated the idea for the façade.
This building features 250 laboratories, of which 24 are open to the public. It can accommodate more than 700 researchers and students who will work on developing their experiments at one time. The open spaces and the glass walls encourage these scientists to communicate and be visible, rather than confining them inside a closed lab. Explore a building where science meets architecture!
Your guides - Virginijus Bukauskas and Kęstutis Naudžius.
Tours are held every half hour. Tour duration - 45 min. Last tour on Saturday is at 5 pm.

Open House Vilnius is an open architecture weekend held in Vilnius, which has been organised since 2015.
The main purpose of the event is to create an opportunity for everyone to take an interest in architecture and to learn more about it.
During such weekends, the buildings in Vilnius that have a remarkable architectural quality as well as special significance to the city and its communities are opened to the public. The programme includes tours of buildings guided by volunteers, the building architects and “residents”.
