This train station in Riga, Latvia’s capital, is a central hub for Latvia’s transportation. It’s an epic structure that towers over the square below. It speaks both to a by-gone age of Soviet era monuments and a forthcoming age of transparency and civic cooperation. It makes me happy because of its size and how it reflects the sky, and like Southern Cross station in Melbourne, the scale and design make me feel as though the buildings are interacting with one another and their environment, like there are huge forces at work in the world.
