Towards the end of his life he began work on a book detailing the history of Riga’s architecture from it’s founding in 1201 to the present day. My Grandfather passed in 2009 before he was able to publish the book.
For me this book is important for many reasons. For Riga, Latvia, lovers of architecture, historians - this book is an important record of Riga’s history. Hidden between the lines is the triumph of will over the devastation brought against the city during the worst war in history.
Your donation will help see that this city’s story is preserved forever. It will bring Riga’s beauty and history to those unfamiliar. And offer a deeper understanding for those who already cherish this city.
From me to you, the deepest heartfelt thanks.
