10. March 2016 – 3. April 2016
Polar Space, an exhibition featuring projects and models of future polar stations, will be open in the Seaplane Harbour from 10 March to 3 April 2016.
The works on exhibit have been created by the architects, interior architects, designers and polar scientists who participated in the polar architecture workshop held in February 2016 in the Estonian Academy of Arts.
On display in the Seaplane Harbour will be solutions by different teams: e.g. a scientific station on drift ice of the Arctic Ocean, a small mobile science lab, a university building in Antarctica, etc. The exhibition will be a topical complement to Race to the End of the Earth and The Icy Science Lab — exhibitions on the history of exploring Antarctica, open in the Seaplane Harbour until 3 April — offering a peek into the polar future.
The workshop underlying Polar Space was led by architect Mari Hunt and polar explorer Timo Palo. In the autumn, the exhibition will move on to Kukruse Polar Manor in north-eastern Estonia.
Polar Space has been realised with help from the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonian Polar Foundation, Estonian Polar Club, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonian Maritime Museum and Seaplane Harbour, Moodne Valgustus, Vipex, Proplastik, Polarsol Global, UnSeen design studio, MakerLab of Tallinn Creative Hub, Siltau Systems, Altia Eesti, Larsen Cognac and b210 architects.
