Unique building photographs. Project + construction = architecture!
The hard daily construction work is often overlooked while celebrating the aesthetic value of a building. This collection of photographs also displays the anatomy of buildings. The photographic fixation of a construction process or architecture in making requires skill, choise of the exact right point of view and good intuition, because the situation is ever-changing and unrepeatable.
The  exhibition is organized by the project manager of magazines “Latvijas Būvniecība” and “Latvijas Architektūra”  Gunita Jansone. Idea and text: Agrita Lūse, the chief editor of magazine “Latvijas Būvniecība”. Photo: Ainars Meiers, Indriķis Stūrmanis, Marika Vanaga, Aleksandrs Kendenkovs, Edgars Pohevičs. Graphic design: Artūrs Maurāns, the artist of “Latvijas Būvniecība” and “Latvijas Architektūra”
