Class-02: 2012-10-20 Workshop 6 at Tallinn [TLL]

ASG | Brandenburg –Technical University – Architecture Studies
International 8-University Master’s Programme in Architecture
Class-02 | Workshop 6 at TALLINN 03.09.2012 - 20.10.2012
Masters Course Workshop Main Theme

CITY FOR LIVING, LIVING IN A CITY

Tallinn workshop main theme is the future for design and construction of the 1960 -'s residential quarter MUSTAMÄE, example of a residential area in Tallinn. We ask ourselves, how quickly does city scape age and trasformation processes begin and what are the elements influencing the transition.

LOOKING FOR YOUR FUTURE MUSTAMÄE

We try to mainly focus on the quality of existing spatial analysis, and the possibility of renewing research, but of course, also pay attention to any changes in the demographic situation, the reasons for such changes in the structure, the real need for housing, economic considerations, in particular, whether there is scope for reconstruction or new construction.

THE LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION

In 2005, the European Union Ministerial Meeting was held in Prague on
„Living-quarter for living“.
Statistics say that 70% of the urban population live in panel buildings. The European Union accounted for the reconstruction of apartment blocks an amount of EUR 350 billion. 2007 - 2013 EU Structural Funds granted apartment blocks reconstruction support of approximately 5 billion a year. This is a substantial sum of money and, therefore, is of course strongly discussed also, again and again, raising the question: to demolish or reconstruct.
The massive construction of apartment blocks, many people considered a crime over architectural tone, but there are other opinions by which this action is justified as a quick and effective way to solve the problems of growing urban need for living space. Problems with the panel-housing in a residential areas persist in each country, however, most specifically, due to the relatively low level of expectancy upon quality of housing in such areas.
Long, boring, detail-free construction facades, the anonymity of big city on the one hand, on the other, thin walls between the apartments, whereby one will inevitably have to participate in life-I am a neighbor, worn infrastructure are among the reasons why the reputation and image of such housing is low. However, it is very important today, 50 years after construction it is important to know and understand the construction and related problems of panel houses. Technical condition of the building requires renovation, as the problems get worse, and after 10-15 years we will get to a situation where the houses are likely to collapse.
50 to 60% of Tallinn's population lives in panel houses. Demolition of all the houses seem to be economically impossible today. Experience living in the panel may, after all, disparage, but as long as people are more important than the content of external prestige, must operate.
The biggest issue at hand is that the paneled apartments are mostly privately owned, so the rehabilitation or demolition of a buildings needs a majority of owners consent and public and policy interest in order to pass legislation and create economic opportunities. After all, it is not possible to force to reconstruct someone's home, or even worse, to demolish it.
We particularly concentrate the work on the existing environment and try to find different options to improve Mustamäe. We analyze the positive aspects of living in Mustamäe, in particular, the factors affecting the development of the district, and their impact on existing jobs, the 50 years of formation of greenery and increased impact and value of habitat and other values, as well as other pro-development conditions.
We are trying to dream, but with real possibilities in mind, focusing on sustainable urban environmental planning.
