Ehituskunst #59 focuses on the cold-weather climate and its direct and indirect effects on both local and similar climatic practices. The focus is on the public space, the typology of which is by far the warmest of the largest, where outdoor activities are more uniform throughout the year and where the human body is somewhat comfortable and pleasant. But how to create a public space that suits our climate?
The editors-in-chief Eik Hermann and Karli Luige made “climate: coldish” from the original job title “climate: cold”. Instead of harsh winters, our colder seasons are dominated by sloppy halftones, cloudy eaves, muddy boulevards and endless November without shining snow. A magazine can be purchased from, among others, the Faculty of Architecture of EKA), Lugemik, Apollo and the bookstore Puänt.
The magazine has gathered largely through interviews and conversations. Thus, the latest issue of Ehituskunst is a journey through dialogues, reflections and conversations that do not seek to provide definitive recipes and answers and provide the best examples, but to begin with search lines that will hopefully continue in university studios, architectural offices and office offices.
