If you are in Moscow, I suggest to visit BOOM/ROOM: NEW ESTONIAN ARCHITECTURE Exhibition.
The exhibition will open June 21st at MUAR — Russian State Museum of Architecture, Moscow. BOOM/ROOM, produced by the Estonian Centre of Architecture in collaboration with the Estonian Embassy in Moscow, presents a distinct selection of Estonian architecture from the last decade. The opening will be accompanied by a seminar, where Estonian architects and institutional representatives discuss the latest tendencies in Estonian architecture.
The Program of the opening seminar includes presentations by Ülar Mark, Chairman of the Estonian Centre of Architecture, Peeter Pere, Chairman of the Union of Estonian Architects, Martin Aunin, laureate of the Young Architect's Award 2009, Karli Luik, partner architect of the award-winning Salto AB, and architecture historian Carl-Dag Lige.
The exhibition is divided to themes of CITY LIGHTS, CULTURE AND SYMBOLS, LAYERS OF TIME, LEISURE TIME SPACES, MODERN WORK ENVIRONMENTS, MUNICIPALITIES BUILD, OLD NEIGHBOURHOODS, NEW NEIGHBOURHOODS, and IDEAL HOME, each representing a distinct set of contemporary buildings from Estonia.
BOOM/ROOM: NEW ESTONIAN ARCHITECTURE has recently been exhibited at DAZ (Deutches Architektur Zentrum, Berlin), London Architecture Festival, Sofia Architecture Week and architecture events in Glasgow as well as Helsinki.
BOOM:ROOM at MUAR will be open from June 21st until August 21st 2011.
