Keep Calm and Go to Latvia!

Hi there,


I mean architecture students! 🙂

I want  to mention about an international summer school in Latvia. In the past, I wrote that I participated in RTU & FOLD’s architectural programme last summer. It was an amazing and very efficient experience. In this summer, it will be repeated with an different name ‘Arcadia’ which starts on July 25 and ends on August 8, 2015. It will be located in a very well place: Cesis. It’s a peaceful and lovely small town. There are many green areas and the buildings are really nice. I recommend this summer programme strongly. Especially, if you are an architecture student, that will be a great experience for you by means of efficient lectures, studio works, mapping, dinner programmes, architectural trips and other entertainments etc. By the way, if you participate in this programme, you should stay in Riga for at least 3 days, because it’s an amazing city! There are many social activities to do and fantastic structures and spaces to see. I loved latvian architecture!

So, don’t think to much and go there! Deadline is 3rd of May for application.

ARCADIA

“Escape the rush of the city and become a happy citizen of ARCADIA! The Summer School of 2015 is now open for applications.

When hardly any place on our planet is left untouched, we especially value the remaining natural areas and strive for fresh air, clean water, luscious greenery and organically produced food. For the frustrated urbanite, a rural town seems to be the refuge, promising unspoiled nature and an idyllic lifestyle, as well as the basic amenities of a city.

What does a modern day Arcadia entail? Does it accommodate urban agriculture, water management, wildlife reintroduction, ecotourism, well–being of the body and the mind? Can we imagine giving up an urbanised territory to the forces of nature? Is today’s Arcadia economically and socially sustainable?”
