Anglers' Seats

Honor Award 2019
Anglers' Seats

By creating a visual reference to an aquatic plant, the Bog Arum (Calla Palustris) that one occasionally finds on lake shores around Latvia, the Design Studio H2E team created special angling spaces on Lake Aluksne. In a unique way, these anglers’ seats combine a functional aspect with information about species of fish in the lake and the richness of the culture and nature of the surrounding area.

Latvians in World War I

Finalist 2018
Latvians in World War I

World War I marked a major turn in the history of the world. It deconstructed the lives of nations and individuals. Helplessness, uncertainty, pain, insecurity. But also patriotism, hope and longing. These emotions were always present in WWI.

This permanent exhibition on Latvians in World War I embraces emotions and creates awareness of WWI and its consequences, both nationally and worldwide. The design team was challenged by the amount of exhibition content and the degree to which they wanted visitors to be emotionally present.
