To receive engineering Bachelor’s degree in architecture, this January the graduates of Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration (RISEBA) Faculty of Architecture and Design (FAD) presented their BA Thesis projects. The degree was awarded to: Andis Alksniņš, Jānis Bērziņš, Pēteris Cars, Ričards Ginters, Kristaps Kleinbergs, Signe Krastiņa, Klinta Pickaine, Krista Skujiņa, Ernests Šveisbergs, Zane Teseļska, Līga Treija, Jēkabs Vaicis, Madara Zavicka un Ruta Žeigure.

Their works are currently on view at the National Library of Latvia where the exhibition «From the general to the particular» takes place on the ground floor. The fourteen students used tools of design, architecture and planning on six cities and villages of Latvia: Rīga, Liepāja, Valmiera, Jēkabpils, Saulkrasti and Engure.

Almost half of the projects address renovation and extensions of historical public buildings, and there are also designs for new, unique buildings in the historical centre of Riga. The aspiring architects have also created visions and proposals for the development of urban blocks, public spaces and larger urban areas in Riga and beyond.

All RISEBA Architecture BA Thesis projects are compiled in FAD’s first publication «FAD Thesis Book 2016» that includes short descriptions and biographies of the 14 authors.

The exhibition «From the general to the particular» is open until March 18 at the National Library of Latvia, Mūkusalas iela 3, Rīga. Opening hours: Mon–Fri 9.00–20.00, Sat–Sun 10.00–17.00. Admission free.
