PROJECT BALTIA lecture programme

Ever since the presentation of its first issue, PROJECT BALTIA has been more than just a magazine, but an active organizer of all kinds of events for architects and designers as well.

Lectures and discussions are a format that allows our audience to keep track of trends in contemporary architecture, the achievements of foreign colleagues, and developments in new materials and technologies.

PROJECT BALTIA’s lecturers are leading architects, designers, and critics from Russia, the Baltic region, and Europe. Previous speakers have included Martin Rein-Cano (Germany), Wolfgang Kil (Germany), Nikolay Lyzlov (Moscow), Sergey Skuratov (Moscow), Nikita Yaveyn (St Petersburg), Martin Aunin (Estonia), Andis Silis (Latvia), Tomas Grunskis (Lithuania), Tom Cerderquist (Finland), Ilkka Suppanen (Finland), Pekka Helin (Finland), Ville Hara (Finland), Michael Sсhindhelm (Germany), Mikhail Khazanov (Russia), Volkwin Marg (Germany), Magnus Mansson (Sweden) and others.

Our lecture programme is an educational project targeted at the architectural community. Each event is supported by a partner company interested in specialists who are trying to improve the quality of the services they provide. The audience, usually between 60 and 100 persons, consists of architects and designers who are intent on career growth and are receptive to new tendencies in design and planning.

The discussions and round tables organized by PROJECT BALTIA have become an effective forum in which architects and suppliers of servicers to architects can talk to one another.

Readers of PROJECT BALTIA have the opportunity to see highlights of our discussions on our website or in the magazine itself (where we also publish articles on our partner companies).

Opening Week of the 5th Architecture Biennale will take place from September 11th – 15th, 2019 in multiple venues in the heart of Tallinn. Dedicated to the theme “Beauty Matters: The Resurgence of Beauty”, the international architecture festival, organised by the Estonian Centre for Architecture and curated by Dr. Yael Reisner, celebrates the aesthetic experience in architecture, after almost 80 years of cultural bias.

The only foreigner to take part in the series of architecture talks entitled ‘Genius loci’ (organized by Project Baltia and the ‘Novaya Gollandiya: cultural urbanization’ project) was the Finnish theoretician Juhani Pallasmaa. Russian readers know Pallasmaa from his book ‘The thinking hand. Existential and embodied wisdom in architecture’, which is now a bibliographical rarity. Here Marina Nikiforova talks to Finland’s principal architect-thinker.
