Telliskivi Urban Walk
Culture sector discovers and conquers forgotten spaces of the city. It seems that office is no longer just an office and our private lives and work are more and more connected. These tendencies are also expressed in urban space. The activity of Telliskivi Loomelinnak (Telliskivi Creative City) in Northern Tallinn has changed the former Baltic Railway factory area into a vibrant urban centre – there are 10 buildings on the territory with a total area of 25.000 m2 that now house a varied array of offices, cultural facilities, shops and bars. Something new seems to happen every week.
On the urban walk we will open doors of buildings, talk about the past of the industrial landscape and large industrial quarters near the city centre, but also look into the future. We ask if Loomelinnak is successful as a real estate model, what are the practices around the world that could be viewed as role models and who are the tenants of Telliskivi. We do all that while wandering on the hallways, rooms, yards and rooftops of the creative campus.
The trip lasts about 1,5- 2 h. / Price: 7-10 euros per person (depends on the size of the group). To specify the details or to book a place on the trip: email@example.com, mob +37255668680
