The publication, which was issued for the 85th birthday of architect R.-L. Kivi, includes a selection of articles from the 1950s through the 1980s, an interview with the architect by Jaan Malin about the former’s life and his Tartu colleagues, as well as a list of Kivi’s works and bibliography of his articles. R.-L. Kivi never served as Chief Tartu Architect; however, he is Tartu’s main architect for many – continuing the work of legendary Arnold Matteus. Raul Kivi has also been active in publishing opinion pieces in the media: the post-war development of Tartu is reflected in his articles. The pieces contain much of what is topical even today, giving a legitimate cause for their re-publication.
