Building Parts. Investigations on material based modularity in 20th century Estonian housing

Workshop 10. –13.09. Estonian Academy of Arts
Exhibition 14.09.–17.11. Museum of Estonian Architecture
Opening 13.09. Museum of Estonian Architecture, Ahtri 2, Tallinn
Curators: Sille Pihlak, Siim Tuksam
Tutors: Manuel Jumenez Garcia, Andreas Köerner, Viki Sandor, Damjan Minovski

Workshop is looking at ways of introducing humanscale articulation in construction by developing protocols of modulation, the investigations are based on different examples from Estonian 20th century housing. Inspired from four historical examples the tutors are asked to combine material qualities and available production methods to come up with quasiautomated models of modular assemblies. Series of resulting small installations will be presented within the permanent exhibition „Space in Motion“, Museum of Estonian Architecture. The models will be exhibited next to the original models, establishing a close dialogue between the historic precedent and the contemporary architectural approach.

Project forms a part of Future Architecture, the first pan-European platform of architecture bringing ideas on the future of cities and architecture closer to the wider public. Project is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Exhibition is a part of Tallinne Architecture Biennale satellite programme.
