The Castle of Light/ Gaismas Pils (Under Construction, October 2013) at Night.
Riga

On May 15, 2008 an agreement with the “Nacionālā Būvkompāniju apvienība” was signed. The construction companies “RBSSKALS”, “Skonto Būve” and “Re&Re” has undertaken to build the Latvian National Library building in the next three years.

The idea is to build a new library building called the Castle of Light, along with a repository and the National Unified Library Information System or Network of Light.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
