Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2017 has announced TAB 2017 Vision Competition, offering architects, scientists and artists the chance to define a new urbanity of the Paljassaare Peninsula in Tallinn in the era when no ecosystem is unaffected by human action. The deadline for the one-stage international competition is 25th of April 2017. TAB 2017 Vision Competition challenges participants to rediscover potential connections between the artificial and natural landscape of Tallinn by addressing the relationship found in the Paljassaare Peninsula between land and coast, development and conservation, wastewater treatment and protected ornithological areas. The participants are asked to propose design solutions with a clear interest in experimentation and engagement with emergent digital design or biotechnologies.
TAB Vision Competition has been a regular part of the biggest architecture event in the region since the Biennale was launched in 2011. The vision competitions are organised in cooperation with Tallinn City and always focus on an area of Tallinn in need of new ideas or development. In 2015, the competition concentrated on one of the central transport intersections of central Tallinn, and in 2013 the focus was on rethinking Soviet period housing area in Väike-Õismäe. The 2017 brief has been proposed by biennale head curator Claudia Pasquero together with the assistant curator for architecture and urbanism Alice Buoli.
- Deadline for submission of competition entries: 25 of April 2017
