Nordic Style, Episode 40. Waterfronts of Riga and Copenhagen.

The episode was filmed and first broadcast in 2010. It actualized questions about the use of urban waters and waterfronts for human recreation — paying special attention to problems in Riga. A part of the story is told from a Nordic perspective, showing excellent examples of Copenhagen’s public swimming baths and waterfronts, featuring an interview with BIG’s architect Jakob Lange. The episode is based on research materials by architect Kristine Grava; it was broadcast on Latvian and Finnish television and has been available on the internet since 2011.
