RTU International Summer School
Riga Technical University International Summer School is an annual two-week course for students of urban planning, architecture, design, geography, fine arts, and social sciences. The theme for 2013 is Local Shift. The summer school is going to focus on local traditions, local resources, local production, yet keep a global perspective in mind. Urban life requires both the depth of local culture, and the reach of global networks. The notion of “local” has shifted and calls for a revisit.
