Nordic Stories’ Thursday:

The Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Latvia invites to the Nordic Stories’ monthly Thursday event: "Conceptual architecture. What’s that?"

Quoting the main guest of this Thursday’s event, architect Miķelis Putrāms: "Sometimes I get the impression that in Latvia [conceptual architecture] is perceived inadequately. I personally think [in architecture] there is no other way, but maybe the idea of concept is not necessary...?” 

The issue will be discussed during the Nordic Stories’ Thursday on 29 April at 17:30. Venue remains the same: the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office, 13/3 Marijas Str, Bergs bazaar.

The main speakers of the event are the co-founder of MADE arhitekti, architect Miķelis Putrāms, and journalist Kristīne Budže.

The role of concept in architecture will be visualised and explained with the help of concrete examples – projects implemented by M. Putrāms himself and his architects’ bureau MADE arhitekti. He will also speak about his experience while working for the B.I.G. project – Bjarke Ingels Group incorporating 85 specialists of architecture, design and construction spheres.

The event will be held in Latvian.
