Take note – story published 1 year ago

The construction of the University of Latvia's (LU) House of Letters, intended to house the faculties of social sciences and humanities, as well as the library, has symbolically begun on August 25, Latvian Television reported.

"The field of humanities and social sciences is just as important to the university. Only together are we a university and this building will be the new temple of social sciences and humanities. Teacher education will be there too,” said LU Rector Indriķis Muižnieks.

The House of Letters will join the House of Science and the House of Nature on the Torņakalns campus.

The building will have eight floors and a basement floor.

“There are more than 100 rooms, there are IT labs, design and art workshops, even a meditation room and gym. [..] An environment in which the young generation comes and teachers and researchers work. The goal, of course, is to finish next year. This is an ambitious goal,” said Mārīte Straume, Chair of the RE & RE construction group board.
