                   Dates: 2005-2008.
Despite what you might think this                     amazing building is not a temporal installation. The image of                     the LTL 1000 banknote is brought onto this building using                     special enamel paint. Money theme well represents various                     businesses located in this spectacular building.  It’s an office                     center located in the second biggest city in Lithuania.By the                     way, banknote dates back to 1925. However it’s not used                     nowadays.

Diller                     Scofidio + Renfro
                   Dates: 2002
Seven years passed from expo 2002                     but this building is still one of my favorites. It’s probably                     the mist that makes it so unusual and amazing at the same time.                     So called ‘blur pavilion’ with self generated mist was meant to                     give an impression that the building is floating above the water                     without any structural support. And indeed it looks just like                     that.
