The 5th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB 2019) (), will open its doors on September 11th, 2019 in multiple venues in the heart of Tallinn, with a vast programme conceived to foster dialogue, multidisciplinarity and experimentation. Dedicated to the theme“Beauty Matters”, the international architecture festival organised by the Estonian Centre for Architecture and curated by Dr. Yael Reisner, celebrates the aesthetic experience in architecture, following almost 80 years of cultural bias.
TAB 2019 Official Programme consists of five main events: A Curatorial Exhibition, a Symposium, a Vision Competition Exhibition, an Installation Programme, and an International Architecture Schools' Exhibition. In parallel, these events will be enriched by a Satellite Programme comprising of exhibitions, lectures, installations, architectural film screenings and other events around the city; and by TAB Club, an information hub and a meeting place at Tallinn Creative Hub Kultuurikatel.
The Curatorial Exhibition reflects on the concept of beauty: “Aspiring to beauty is aiming at depth — the true challenge in architecture, as it is in poetry, mathematics, or politics. The eight invited architects were challenged to design a project that is both local to Tallinn and global; a conduit for the emotional experience of beauty in an urban context”, asserts the Head Curator.
