Osalesime koos WhiteNight lighting põhjanaabritega Tallinna linnamüüri valgustuse ideekonkursil. Võidupärga kaela ei pandud, aga tööprotsess kinkis meile palju tarkust nii disaini kui rahvusvahelise meeskonnatöö vallas. Siin ka teile vaatamiseks kahe kuu jooksul valminud ja vormistatud mõtted, kuidas meie kalli vanalinna monumentaalbarjääri uhkeks valgustada võiks.
We participated in the idea competition for lighting up Tallinn old town walls. We did not bring home the first prize, but learned a lot about lighting design and international teamwork during the process. Here's our ideas about how to illuminate the historic landmark aroun Tallinn.
