Bank of Latvia money depository | Bezdelīgu iela 3 - Latvijas bankas naudas glabātuve



 Bank of Latvia money depository. Bank of Latvia money depository building, built in 2001, is a good example of contemporary architecture. It was acknowledged as the best new building in Latvia in 2001. It's also probably the most or the second most guarded building in Riga (behind US embassy). A photographer who just wants to capture the architecture will recieve an immediate response in the form of security guard who will ask to show "permission" or to stop taking photos. However, as far as I know, there is no legal basis for that (it would be only if the bank had a warning signs depicting it as "critical infrastructure" object). Latvia Bank has also introduced a legislation changes which would allow it's security to shoot down drones which would fly over (or just in proximity?) to the building... Well, what is there to said... If in the age of publicly avilable detailed satellite views and Google Street views, a photographer who just wants to capture good architecture, is viewed as a dangerous threat, then such buildings must be built just as an ugly boxes and hidden behind even more ugly fences in far away in the city outskirts. But, if you build a great example of contemporary architecture and it's well visible from the public space - then don't wonder that there are people who wants to take photos of it - and don't forbid them to do that!

 Latvijas bankas naudas glabātuve. Kvalitatīvas un interesantas modernās arhitektūras paraugs ir Latvijas Bankas naudas glabātuve, kas uzcelta 2001. gadā un togad arī atzīta par gada labāko būvi. Diemžēl fotogrāfs, kurš mēģinās nofotografēt šo skaistumu, ar augstu iespējamību saskarsies ar bankas drošības dienesta neapmierinātību - lai gan tiesisks pamats, šķiet, tam būtu tikai gadījumā, ja ap ēku būtu izvietotas brīdinājuma zīmes par ēku kā kritiskās infrastruktūras objektu, ko nedrīkst bildēt. Jāsaka tikai viens - ja reiz ir tāda paranoja, ka brīvi pieejamu satelītattēlu un Google ielas skatu laikmetā tomēr arvien tiek uzskatīts, ka fotogrāfs, kurš iemūžina arhitektūru, rada kādus draudus, tad šādas ēkas vajag celt kā pilnīgi neizteiksmīgas būdas aiz vēl neizteiksmīgākiem žogiem. Bet, ja uzprojektē interesantu ēku, tad nevajag brīnīties, ka cilvēki vēlas to nofotografēt.
