Rīga X Riga X is an innovative research project in Latvia, – strategic, spatial vision for compact, liveable city, based on economic drivers – higher education, ICT, culture economy and regeneration of housing stock. Riga is the only capital city on the Baltic coast with a steady, 30-year decline in population – it simply cannot afford to maintain its infrastructure. The hypothesis of the project is that if Riga concentrates its power to build upon most dynamic economies, and integrate them in a focused effort to regenerate its former industrial belt, it has potential to be a compact, liveable city.
