Estonian Days Taking Place in Strasbourg, France


No. 22-TT

Estonian Days will be taking place in Strasbourg from 28-29 March. The two-day event will include a lecture on modern Estonian architecture at Strasbourg’s National School of Architecture, the opening of the exhibit “50 Houses”, a performance by Julia Boman with distinguished jazz musicians, and a lecture about Estonia by Estonian Ambassador Sven Jürgenson at the Political Science Institute.

On Wednesday, 28 March, the exhibit “50 Houses”, which introduces the modern architecture of Estonian homes, will be opened at the CAUE Bas-Rhin architectural gallery in Strasbourg, France. The houses on display have been built over the past 15 years as part of a unique project. The exhibit is being brought to France by the Estonian Centre of Architecture and its authors are architect Kalle Vellevoog, interior decorator Tiiu Truus, graphical designer Martin Pedanik, and architectural researcher Karen Jagodin. “50 Houses” was also displayed in Paris during the cultural festival “Estonie tonique” in the fall of 2011.

The exhibit opening will be preceded by an architectural seminar at the INSA School of Architecture, where architectural researcher Karem Jagodin and architect Toivo Tammik will talked about modern architecture in Estonian homes.

The evening will be concluded with a concert in the well-known Strasbourg concert venue Au Camionneur, where distinguished jazz musicians from Strasbourg will perform together with jazz singer Julia Boman, who is originally from Estonia.

On Thursday, 29 March Estonian Ambassador to France Sven Jürgenson will participate in a conference at the Political Science Institute focusing on the euro crisis, further European Union integration, and Euro-Atlantic security.

The Estonian Days in Strasbourg were organised by the Estonian Embassy in Paris in co-operation with the Estonian Centre of Architecture, the Estonian Representation to the Council of Europe, the Political Science Institute, the CAUE Bas-Rhin architectural gallery, and the INSA School of Architecture.
