This building is just like some people who are too shy and insecure to be themselves - instead they just reflect others. Especially uneasy they feel between strangers - in the company with too different people. This building is just like such outsider - a modern one between many luxurious historical buildings. And so it tries to become as invisible as possible - it's really somehow unnoticeable when passing by. If that was the architect's concept, it is perfectly succesful.

  1. That's very interesting information. I find it fascinating that the architect had that notion in mind while designing the building. I think he/she was successful.

  2. Actually, I don't know, I just suppose. That's how I decode that building :)

  3. However, previously sharp edge of the building slightly visible just above the stairs was one of the famous Riga’s enigma - Combination of sharp edge, blue sky, midday light and position of the viewer, revels “carton wall” like effect, surprising tourists, when they turn around passed by.
