RISEBA FAD arhitektūras studentu 2017./2018. studiju gada rudens semestra projektu skates 21. un 22. decembrī

Thursday, DEC 21, 2017

"First comes the theatre, then comes the theatre design" is an intriguing title for 3rd-year architecture student projects that deal with the future development of Latvian National theatre.

Latvian National theatre just recently on October 2017 opened the new annex to LMT New hall providing the entrance from the canal side, welcoming foyer with the cafe and improving accessibility requirements. The future development strives for even further extension taking over the site of the existing tennis courts. The rather ambitious building program aims to form a new addition with the black box performance and rehearsal halls, various public and auxiliary functions.
Students in six teams will start with their presentations of the research parts related to the existing situation, theatre architecture and design requirements, building program, site and other aspects.
