As the society takes a more active part in the development of high quality environment, an architect should be able to reconcile the interests of all stakeholders. It is virtually not possible to be a solo player in the contemporary architecture.

The architect of the 21st century is like a conductor holding an orchestral score in his hands and managing design and construction processes so that the result meets expectations. That is why a modern architect should set ambitious goals, be able to think critically and respect opinion of the others.

The priority of the Institute is educating and training specialists for the Latvian market. However, we also recommend our students to gain academic experience abroad and willingly enroll foreign students at our Institute for international exchange.
