National Library of Latvia (first sketch in 1989 / construction from 2008 to 2014) is designed by the internationally acclaimed Latvian-born architect Gunnar Birkerts (1925-2017), the United States. The building is among the most significant cultural projects of the 21st century in Latvia. Besides the standard services of the library, the Castle of Light and its infrastructure serves as a platform for activities of various cooperation partners and a place of unique creative synergies.
