State printing house, later – Vytautas Magnus University

The construction of this building was driven by the need to have a state printing house, which had to fully meet the needs of the state press. This is the first large state edifice built during the period of national independence, the first to be built as a result of an international bidding competition, and the first designed by a foreign architect.

VMU Medical Faculty

The creation of a stylistic transition from retrospectivism to modernism, this building is dominated by features of modernized classicism. It was designed following the example of the newly built Brussels University Medicine Faculty, held to be one of Europe`s finest. Since the financial capabilities of Lithuania were more modest, the Kaunas building turned out accordingly: it is simpler. The structure of the blocks highlights the functional zoning: to administration and teaching; the connecting block and the auditoriums; and the last block was for research activities, including those of an Anatomy Institute. In 1936 the cellar was adapted for the first Lithuanian crematorium.
