Johann Daniel Felsko (1813–1902) is the first Master Builder of Riga who received academic training and held the title of City Architect. After journeyman’s travels and studies of architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, the most prominent North European centre of artistic education in that time, he returned to his native city. Felsko belongs to the first generation of Historicist architects. His four decades of creativity illustrate the appearance and development of Neo-Gothic, Neo-Renaissance and round-arch style in the biggest Baltic port city of the Russian Empire. Daina Lāce’s monograph is based on her PhD dissertation that was defended at the Latvian Academy of Art in 2010, and its publication celebrates the forthcoming 200th anniversary of the architect’s birth.
