TAB 2011: Landscape Urbanism

September 8-11, 2011

Tallinn Architecture Biennale is a new architecture forum that brings together theory and practice, young and experienced architects in order to start rich discussion over architecture, urban planning and landscape issues. The first TAB concentrated on the hybrid issue of landscape urbanism. TAB 2011 considered 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. TAB 2011 comprised of three main events: symposium Landscape Urbanism (curated by Katrin Koov), exhibition 11FLIRTS (curated by Villem Tomiste) and vision competition STREET 2020.
