SISU Symposium of Interior Architecture and Spatial Use 2017 “Naked Space”
7. – 8. 06. Luzern, Neubad, Switzerland and Mobile Classroom of the EAA Dept of Interior Architecture, in Tallinn

The SISU 2017 symposium will focus on re-use of interior space and community-driven redesign processes. The symposium will shed light on the question, how interior architecture is able to create an identity for naked space while ‘re-dressing’ it, and how this can contribute new value to the whole neighbourhood. What are our needs today and how does it influence the re-purposing process? How can we investigate the space inside the buildings of the past?

SISU will approach these questions across different disciplines including interior architects/designers, architects, filmmakers, academics and students from different cultures for the first time in parallel in Switzerland and in Estonia.

The Estonian Association of Interior Architects, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Art / School of Engineering and Architecture, the Estonian Academy of Arts / Department of Interior Architecture and the Association of Swiss Interior Architects have the honour of inviting You to the 4th International Interior Architecture Symposium SISU

DESIGNING WITH DEMONS. Open lecture by Rachel Armstrong

Figure 18

On March 30th at 6 pm, the Open Lecture Series of the architecture faculty will be happy to present Newcastle-based architect and academic Rachel Armstrong at Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Pikk 20, Tallinn). Armstrong focusses on living architecture and believes that to improve sustainability, we should connect our buildings to the nature, not cut them off from it, and will in her lecture focus on what it means to design for a lively unpredictable world. What happens when a city starts to grow the same way nature does? Open Lectures are open to all architecture and design students, professionals and general audience intrigued by spatial and design matters: the lectures are in English and free of charge.

Rachel Armstrong is Professor of Experimental Architecture at Newcastle University and an internationally acclaimed academic and pioneer in innovating environmental solutions and interdisciplinary practice. She designs and engineers architectural applications in the built environment, which are based on the properties of life-like chemical and biological systems. She produces prototypes that have been internationally exhibited at festivals such as the Venice Biennale (2010; 2015), which demonstrate how it may be possible to harness the properties of living systems to address environmental solutions. She also consults with industry to advise on convergent technologies and low carbon solutions.

She is also a 2010 Senior TED Fellow who is establishing an alternative approach to sustainability that couples with the computational properties of the natural world to develop a 21st century production platform for the built environment, which she calls ‘living’ architecture.

Armstrong is looking into Tallinn more deeply this year also in connection with the Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2017, due to being on the jury of the international TAB Vision Competition, which focusses on Paljassaare Peninsula area and ends on 25th April 2017.

At the Open Lecture Series internationally renowned architects, artists, theoreticians, critics and urbanists from all around the globe give talks to offer fresh perspectives on architecture, design, urban development and critical thought. The lectures are open to everyone interested in the future of our living environment. The lectures are held in English, free of charge.

Open Lecture Series is supported by Estonian Cultural Endowment and organised by the Estonian Academy of Arts architecture department. All lectures are in English and free of charge.

TSIRKUS/CIRCUS IN SAAREMAA

March 17 – April 17, 2017 Saaremaa Kunstistuudio, Saaremaa, Estonia
“They are enthusiasts, devotees. Addicts. Something about the circus stirs their souls, and they ache for it when it is absent. They seek each other out, these people of such specific like mind. They tell of how they found the circus, how those first few steps were like magic. Like stepping into a fairy tale under a curtain of stars. . .when they depart, they shake hands and embrace like old friends, even if they have only just met, and as they go their separate ways they feel less alone than they had before.” Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Eleven international artists from the Jewelry and Blacksmithing department at the Estonian Academy of Arts, Tallinn present Tsirkus: a spectacle of contemporary jewellery and modern metal objects that simultaneously celebrate, contradict, and conjure reality and our experiences within it.
The quiet intensity and curious desires that have drawn these artists together creates an inviting milieu to seek the magic, to find the connections, to create beyond the expected. The compelling results, both collectively and individually, are radically diverse, materially deceptive, and conceptually provocative. Surprising opportunities are manifested where the corporeal becomes fantasy, the imagined becomes possible, and questions are raised though left unanswered – perhaps best left until the circus meets again.
This unique collective brought together by chance includes: Erinn M. Cox (US), Sou Inoue (JP), Alexander Kamelhair (US), Moonika Kase (EE), Triin Kukk (EE), Timmo Lember (EE), Merlin Meremaa (EE), Anneli Oppar (EE), Hansel Tai (CN), Hannes Tōnuri (EE), and Hanna-Maria Vanaküla (EE).
