Competition: Tallinn Architecture Biennale: Competition/Street 2020


Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) is a new architecture forum that brings together theory and practice, young and experienced architects in order to arouse rich discussion over architecture, urban planning and landscape issues. First, TAB concentrates on the hybrid issue of Landscape Urbanism. TAB Vision Competition is addressed to students and young architects, landscape architects and planners who are welcome to shape future cities and make room for fresh ideas.
TAB hope is to see landscape urbanism as so-called 'third way', which can possibly solve urban problems that have proved too difficult for traditional planning because of rapid processes, constant change and instability. Landscape urbanism could also provide answers how to guide urban processes from inside, so that the system as a whole still maintains a balance. The term 'landscape' is used primarily as the model for consistency, responsiveness and scale.

Jury
Jury members are Eva Castro, Architect (AA School, Plasmastudio, Groundlab) and Endrik Mänd, Chief Architect (Tallinn City Government).

Three prizes will be awarded at the competition:
- First prize € 3000
- Second prize € 2000
- Third prize € 1000
+ 7 honourable mentions
