Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) - Biennale Architettura 2016

Anamorphosis is one of the winning competition entries to the 2013 Tallinn Architecture Biennale Vision Competition tackling the future of the socialist housing district of Väike-Õismäe in Tallinn. The district was completed in the late 1970s and the architects Mart Port and Malle Meelak were awarded the state prize of the Soviet Union in 1986. The point of departure for change was the transformation from a soviet to a neoliberal society after Estonia regained its independence in 1992. The brief of the speculative competition asked for visions on what to do with an ideal idea manifested in the circular plan of the district? Should totality be attacked with totality? Can geometric order be enjoyable to live in? What is there to recycle for today’s life and new utopias of the future?
