Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2017 is announcing TAB 2017 Urban Installation Programme Open Call, offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and build an experimental wooden folly in the heart of Tallinn. The competition has two stages - digital portfolios can be submitted for the first competition stage until October 15th 2016.
The international open two-stage competition is challenging participants to develop creative designs for a temporary outdoor installation, making innovative use of the fabrication capacities with the Estonian wooden house manufacturers. The aim is to promote synergy between emerging designers and industry.
The folly will be built in August 2017 in front of the Estonian Architecture Museum in Tallinn, on an all-grass area, with a flat area of 17x17m on top of a slightly elevated area. Penetrative foundations cannot be used on the site; the folly can have a maximum height of 5m and should have a lifespan of at least 23 months. Participants are asked to use local sustainable material – timber – and winners have a chance to co-produce it with local timber industry, where there is machinery available for lam-wood, 5 axis CNC milling for timber or planar surfaces, lasering, etc. The use of local industrial CNC capabilities is encouraged.
