- Eight entries in TAB Vision Competition shortlist
The international jury - Dutch architect Winy Maas, Tallinn City Architect Endrik Mänd and chairman of the Union of Estonian Architects Villem Tomiste - shortlisted eight entries to the Tallinn Architecture Biennale Vision Competition “Epicentre of Tallinn”. The works to expect an award or a special mention at the opening of the exhibition on 10th September at Viru Keskus are .Dot Flow, Ad2115, Enhanced Urban Movement, Hotspot, Limbo, Magnet, Rukkilill, Triptych.
All proposals answer to a city - the "self-driven city" - no longer dominated by cars and traffic for more freedom of the people.
Jury member Winy Maas commented: ''We learned that we will have maximum freedom – no tunnels, no bridges, no signage, no protection devices, no borders any more. This frees up a lot of space for other functions such as nature, buildings, plazas etc. We will need a lot of new ideas on how to use that space.''
The public vote for the c in the digital catalogue is open until the opening of the exhibition at Viru Keskus on 10th September.
Floornature and Livegreenblog as media partner of TAB2015 will assist to the ceremony and exhibition and present the people's choice award live!
