Tallinn Architecture Biennale: Recycling Socialism

The aim of the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2013 Vision Competition is to gather architectural ideas and methods to re-envision and to enhance the iconic block-housing district of Väike-Õismäe ("Little Blossom Hill") designed by Estonian architects Malle Meelak and Mart Port in Tallinn. Despite its geometric and seemingly perfect planning principles, Väike-Õismäe lacks coherence and versatility as a living environment and similar to other modernist apartment block areas of that era its every-day life are still searching for a common language.

TAB 2013 Vision Competition is an open international architecture competition.
