What are the attributes that helped Latvia to sustain its cultural heritage over millennia? The exhibition presents the theme of vulnerability, and it’s aspects of Exposure, Sensitivity, Authenticity and Transcendence as powerful attributes of Latvia’s cultural self-identity expressed in sophisticated architectural renovations.

The exhibition showcases selected projects in photo presentations, film and interviews with architects, presenting perspective on technology, attitude and lifestyle that have evolved in Latvia and have an effect on bringing the existing buildings beyond their former limits.
