POST-ARCHITECTURE

Why the talk is inspiring?

In 2014, a Latvian pavilion devoted to post-war soviet architecture was presented at Venice Architectural Biennale. The curators of the exhibition put forward a provocative question – is there any modernist architecture in Latvia, and noted that there are no acknowledged documentation, research and evaluation of post-war architecture. The exhibition has served as architectural database of the mentioned period and as an urge to consider the buildings for the list. What has changed since then and has heritage protection agencies acknowledged modern heritage? These questions will be discussed in a lecture by architects from Riga.
