About 10 international and Estonian exhibitions have been gathered into the historic Balti jaama ootepaviljon.



Human Cities

As the world is changing, we are faced with new paradigms. Rapid urbanisation has led to more than half of the world’s population now living in cities. Cities will need to find ways to accommodate this growth. They will also need to seek solutions for a range of other challenges: economic and cultural globalisation, environmental crises, inter-city competition to attract investments and changes to the ways people live, work and spend their leisure time. All this means that cities are facing a new reality.

This is the context in which, 2014-2018, Human Cities Challenging the City Scale has questioned the scale and co-creation of the contemporary city. Based on a concept created in 2006 by Brussels-based international creative consultancy Pro Materia, the project is now managed by Cité du design Saint-Etienne.

The project was co-funded by the European Commission's Creative Europe / Culture Programme and has involved 12 partners from 11 European cities: Tallinn, London, Brussels, Belgrade, Cieszyn, Saint-Etienne, Graz, Helsinki, Bilbao, Ljubljana and Milan. The partners included universities, design centres and creative design consultancies.

They shared a common goal: to identify practice that challenges the way cities are co-designed. In 4 years the project has seen a rich programme of activities and outputs: an investigation of 90 state-of-the-art case studies, collected in a book; 9 co-creative sessions, 18 experiments in 13 cities, 12 international workshops, 11 international conferences, 6 master classes, 9 exhibitions.

Aalto the EXIT School of Architecture

The Exit School of Architecture project examines shared local identities and meanings in new Finnish architecture. It looks at the works’ participatory methods to find what aspects of local culture and aesthetics are embedded in the design process and the final product. The exhibition demonstrates shared social and aesthetic values and reasoning behind the present Nordic Noir architecture in Finland.

There are present 14 recently completed projects and 6 diploma works that abandon standardized ways of building to find more meaningful, individual solutions to design problems in contemporary cities and landscapes while retaining shared aesthetic values of solitude, simplicity, and closeness to nature in materials and spatial expression.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, Department of Leather Design, "WoW"

“A bag that doesn’t look like a bag” – this is the task our students get and it tells them to make a story with the help of a product where the form of the classic bag has vanished. Visitor of the exhibition can experience the so-called WOW effect looking at the works where something familiar is telling an unusual story, different from what to expect.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences. Applied research project MultiWeave 

Textile students of Tartu Art College are developing method of creation of textile material (invented by Kadi Pajupuu) in the scope of the applied research project MultiWeave. The invention combines CNC technology. Prototypes of the machine MultiWeave (2016) and SpiderWeave (2017) were built during hackathons under the supervision of Anna Jõgi (Kriimsilm Tehnoloogiad). The partner from textile industry Urmas Mägi (Fein-Elast Estonia) is financing the development of the software.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, “I live here”

City as an environment is the seedbed for ever-changing and developing culture. Creation springs up from the environment and also creates it. The work of Pallas students is the outcome of questions about the relationship between environment and creator, place and people. The authors are both giving and getting, using and creating, valuing the past and visualizing the future. The city is alive until creativity lives there. "I Live Here" is the first display of design of the Pallas University of Applied Sciences.

The Exit School of Architecture project examines shared local identities and meanings in new Finnish architecture. It looks at the works’ participatory methods to find what aspects of local culture and aesthetics are embedded in the design process and the final product. The exhibition demonstrates shared social and aesthetic values and reasoning behind the present Nordic Noir architecture in Finland.

There are present 14 recently completed projects and 6 diploma works that abandon standardized ways of building to find more meaningful, individual solutions to design problems in contemporary cities and landscapes while retaining shared aesthetic values of solitude, simplicity, and closeness to nature in materials and spatial expression.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences. Applied research project MultiWeave 

Textile students of Tartu Art College are developing method of creation of textile material (invented by Kadi Pajupuu) in the scope of the applied research project MultiWeave. The invention combines CNC technology. Prototypes of the machine MultiWeave (2016) and SpiderWeave (2017) were built during hackathons under the supervision of Anna Jõgi (Kriimsilm Tehnoloogiad). The partner from textile industry Urmas Mägi (Fein-Elast Estonia) is financing the development of the software.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, “I live here”

City as an environment is the seedbed for ever-changing and developing culture. Creation springs up from the environment and also creates it. The work of Pallas students is the outcome of questions about the relationship between environment and creator, place and people. The authors are both giving and getting, using and creating, valuing the past and visualizing the future. The city is alive until creativity lives there. "I Live Here" is the first display of design of the Pallas University of Applied Sciences.

"Human Cities" exhibition opening 13.09. 17:30–19:00

About 10 international and Estonian exhibitions have been gathered into the historic Balti jaama ootepaviljon.



Human Cities

As the world is changing, we are faced with new paradigms. Rapid urbanisation has led to more than half of the world’s population now living in cities. Cities will need to find ways to accommodate this growth. They will also need to seek solutions for a range of other challenges: economic and cultural globalisation, environmental crises, inter-city competition to attract investments and changes to the ways people live, work and spend their leisure time. All this means that cities are facing a new reality.

This is the context in which, 2014-2018, Human Cities Challenging the City Scale has questioned the scale and co-creation of the contemporary city. Based on a concept created in 2006 by Brussels-based international creative consultancy Pro Materia, the project is now managed by Cité du design Saint-Etienne.

The project was co-funded by the European Commission's Creative Europe / Culture Programme and has involved 12 partners from 11 European cities: Tallinn, London, Brussels, Belgrade, Cieszyn, Saint-Etienne, Graz, Helsinki, Bilbao, Ljubljana and Milan. The partners included universities, design centres and creative design consultancies.

They shared a common goal: to identify practice that challenges the way cities are co-designed. In 4 years the project has seen a rich programme of activities and outputs: an investigation of 90 state-of-the-art case studies, collected in a book; 9 co-creative sessions, 18 experiments in 13 cities, 12 international workshops, 11 international conferences, 6 master classes, 9 exhibitions.

Aalto the EXIT School of Architecture

The Exit School of Architecture project examines shared local identities and meanings in new Finnish architecture. It looks at the works’ participatory methods to find what aspects of local culture and aesthetics are embedded in the design process and the final product. The exhibition demonstrates shared social and aesthetic values and reasoning behind the present Nordic Noir architecture in Finland.

There are present 14 recently completed projects and 6 diploma works that abandon standardized ways of building to find more meaningful, individual solutions to design problems in contemporary cities and landscapes while retaining shared aesthetic values of solitude, simplicity, and closeness to nature in materials and spatial expression.

Pallas University of Applied Sciences, Department of Leather Design, "WoW"

“A bag that doesn’t look like a bag” – this is the task our students get and it tells them to make a story with the help of a product where the form of the classic bag has vanished. Visitor of the exhibition can experience the so-called WOW effect looking at the works where something familiar is telling an unusual story, different from what to expect.
