Ints Menģelis / architect / tutor at the Architecture Design studio III & IV

If you get bored of traditional Hanza city and you feel like living in a museum of history, you need to get a fresh look of the contemporary architecture and urban life and must go to (let's say) Rotterdam. So did 3rd year architecture students. Together with Architecture design IV tutors Janin Walter, Ints Menģelis and Architecture programme director Oskars Redbergs from May 28th till June 1st they went on annual study tour to Netherlands. Since WW II, when city was bombed, it always has been an experimentation platform for the urban enviroment and architecture. Since 1970-ties, when one of most significant architecture offices nowadays OMA (Office of Metropolitain Architecture) was established there, creative competition, experimentation and searching for new possibilities had became even more visible.

Erasmus internship in Paris

Kārlis Narkevičs / BA Arch III year / 2013/2014

Our study period consists of persistent bigger or smaller trials and challenges but after being in a constant environment and surrounded by the same people, sooner or later each can have a desire for new challenges. I wanted to gain knowledge, to examine myself in unprecedented environment and possibly find new insights. Therefore, I took the opportunity to practice at one of the architect offices abroad using Erasmus Internship placement program. The acquisition of knowledge is very important part of study process, but in my opinion, very important aspect is also a quality relationships with lecturers. Maintaining a friendly and open relationship forms productive communication that can provide unexpected opportunities. A good recommendation received from the design professor let me end up in one of the best young architects in France - DGT architects. With great fervor and despite of my poor French language skills, I decided to spend the summer in Paris ‐ the city which I visited for the first time.
