Yet again, the first-year students of the architecture department of the Estonian Academy of Arts have built a new wooden shelter to Harju green area and this time it is called Siluett.
Planning and building a shelter with the whole class has been a large project of the first-year students of the architecture department of the Estonian Academy of Arts for ten years already. But it is only a second time it is erected in Harju street’s green area. The shelter, which is built on location, will remain open for the walkers and wanderers of the Old Town until September 23, after which it will be transported to Pedaspea that has become the home of all the former shelters as well.
A wooden shelter as experimenting with the space, form and material on the scale of a human body is the central assignment of the spring semester of the first-year students of the architecture and city planning department of the Estonian Academy of Arts, which was this year instructed by professor Andres Alver and Indrek Rünkla.
