PIER by SIIRI VALLNER & INDREK PEIL, KALARANNA 1 (KALAMAJA DISTRICT), TALLINN, ESTONIA, 2011

Thanks to http://www.lift11.ee/ : Urban installations festival, from 12 June to 1 October 2011, Tallinn, Estonia

The pier located by the Culture Kilometre has weathered and deformed over decades and become unfit for landing boats. However, it would be perfect for sitting, relaxing and having a good time. It can be made usable in its present condition with just a few touches, by conserving and reinforcing the slanting concrete faces and covering them with terrace boards. The boarded surfaces will reflect the shapes of concrete slabs created upon disintegration. This way, a derelict and crumbling object can be revived as part of the modern city space, opening up the seaside area of Tallinn for local people and for visitors.

Siiri and Indrek have also done some amazing buildings: http://www.world-architects.com/kavakava/
