Photographer's Note

Some highrise enthusiasts try to popularise word "commieblock" - formed by "communist"+"blockhouse". Why not? Short and handy word to describe a habitat of millions of people all over the world... packed in cheaply built square houses. Communists? Hm... it is not their monopoly - you see similar buildings all over the world, in any country.
Riga does not consist of pure Art Nouveau quartals. In fact major part of people here live in buildings like this one. In this particular building I have been living for some weeks - in a floor No. 12. Nice view... but the stairways and elevators were terribly dirty.
Enjoy :)
