Wanted: Visions for Tallinn

— by

The Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2013 invites architects and professionals in related fields to take part in the TAB 2013 Vision Competition and envision the future of an iconic circular block-housing district in Tallinn, Estonia – Väike-Õismäe (Little Blossom Hill).

Tallinn

The district is positioned as a complete solution around a pond in the middle. The circle-based plan creates a unique urban context but is also a limitation that gives the illusion of a functional whole. However, similarly to other modernist apartment block areas, the environment and modern-day life are still searching for a common language. Jury includes Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and the first prize is €5,000. Competition deadline: April 30th, 2013. Click here for the competition briefing.
