Exhibition LibrarySPACE

What should the modern library space offer its user, the 3rd year students of the EAA bachelor’s study of interior architecture ask, and offer a number of spatial concepts at the exhibition opened at the National Library until 31 August. The student projects presented at the exhibition have been created within studio “Public Space”, which was supervised by Jan Skolimowski and Hanna Karits. Public space – in the sense of buildings serving public purposes – is dealt with in the Department of Interior Architecture of EAA every autumn semester, focusing on one or another specific building.

 

This time the focus was on the Estonian National Library. The building, designed by architect Raine Karp and completed in 1993, will soon be undergoing renovation. During the course, the students researched the spatial typology of library buildings more broadly and took a closer look at the foyer and the 5th floor of the National Library, in particular. Multi-layered ideas and fresh creative spatial solutions were developed that would meet the expectations of the 21st century in the context of people’s needs, the organization itself and the surrounding Tallinn city. The focus was on the values ​​of the existing interior, the basics of lighting and room acoustics both in theory and practice. Ideas of ​​a library as a creative residency, a small village, an active movement space, an urban jungle, a memory place, etc were born.

 

On an interior architect’s desk, a public space project takes on the meaning of a social space with a physical dimension and a social content. In today’s urban and cultural landscape adapted for consumption, it is critical to relate to spaces on a daily basis that do not require opening one’s wallet. How has the public space changed in the last year, when the doors of almost all public spaces were closed for quite a while? The subject of public space provides an opportunity to think big and dream openly when studying the interior architecture of EAA. The content of the professional studio is to delve into different spatial typologies (incl. the peculiarities of the interior architecture of a large hall) and to critically interpret their functioning in contemporary and future space-time. During the semester, students interact with one specific public building, looking for connections with the architecture of the building, the urban context and new modern users. Until the end of August, all visitors to the National Library have been invited to reflect on the results of one such semester.

Exhibition A Tale of Persistence: Expanding on Decline in Ida-Virumaa

The master students from the Interior Architecture and Urbanism Departments of the Estonian Academy of Arts present their projects on Ida-Virumaa’s living spaces at the White Hall of Kohtla-Järve Oil Shale Museum. The landscapes of Ida-Viru, where distinguishing between the man-made and the natural has become increasingly difficult, conceal hope. They speak of a future different from the one that was planned in the past. That difference, despite the bleak outlook, is still liveablethese are environments of adaptation where a new tale is being made. Students of urban studies and interior architecture were asked to question how various experiences of habitation could be connected to the governance of decline and strategic shrinkage of the built environment. In the beautiful interiors of the White Hall, they present installations, drawings, photos, that represent topics relating to living in declining places, such as preservation, re-wilding and enchantment of emptiness.

The related courses were tutored by Mariann Drell, Kristi Grišakov, Keiti Kljavin and Laura Linsi.

Participants:

Mira Samonig, Mirell Ülle, Janosh Heydorn, Alexander Nenenko, Juss Heinsalu, Ardo Hiiuväin, Triin Juhanson, Veera Gontšugova, Eeros Lees, Þórhildur Guðmundsdóttir, Daria Khrystych, Fernanda Ayala Torres, Semele Kari

TASE is the annual spring graduation show of the Estonian Academy of Arts, with this year’s main exhibition taking place at the Faculty of Fine Arts building at Lembitu 10. The exhibition will open on 30 May at 17:00 and the final projects will remain on view until 13 June.

The exhibition can be considered a farewell ceremony to the temporary spaces EKA has been working on since its main academic building at Tartu mnt. 1 was demolished eight years ago. The Lembitu 10 building has hosted EKA’s academic and creative activities over the past four years and, with the TASE ’18 exhibition, students will have a chance, as a symbolic gesture, to show their final projects in a space that EKA will leave behind when it moves to the new building this summer.

The exhibition will feature the final projects of fine arts, architecture, design and art and culture master’s students with the additional final works of fine arts bachelor’s students.

 

Main organiser: Keiu Krikmann

Co-organisers: Fidelia Regina Randmäe, Solveig Jahnke, Mart Vainre, Maarja Pabut, Laura Kuusk, Kelli Turman and Ingela Heinaste
