I am an architect, amateur journalist, occasional architectural critic. I have been mentioned in several publications (including book 'Self Sufficient City' and interview for The Moscow News). I am running an architectural news website archata.com and a blog in Lithuanian archata.lt, writing articles to one of the biggest news portals in Lithuania lrytas.lt, 15min.lt and contributing to other magazines.

As a professional architect I have worked in Denmark (SLETH), Belgium (51n4e), Japan (Kengo Kuma and Associates) and United Kingdom (PLP Architecture) with projects ranging from invited high-rise and masterplan competitions to social housing and public projects.

Not including numerous mentions in competitions with offices I have worked with, personal achievements include winning a Paneriai Memorial to Victims of Holocaust and All Victims of Nazism international competition and receiving a second prize for Cultural Center in Nida.

My alma maters are Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, The University of Tokyo and KU Leuven where I received Master's degree magna cum laude.

Hi, I am Andrius Ropolas
