Water Way in Estonia

After success of CIRRUS 1st summer school, Estonian Academy of Arts’ Department of Interior Architecture in collaboration with Estonian State Forest Management Centre and CIRRUS/Nordplus network organized the 5th Season Wilderness Summer School.


Floating structure Veetee was created in 2016 during a ten-day summer school titled 5th Season: Wilderness, organised by Estonian Academy of Arts interior architecture department. With its biggest wetlands in Estonia and changing water levels, Soomaa was the inspiration for creating a structure that could inhabit different functions: a shelter, a fireplace and a sauna – to meet the needs of a traveller or a local, either by land or by a boat. Floating was conceived as a way to adapt to the ever changing conditions of the Soomaa context, especially the flooding of the 5th season, which happens every year, during two weeks in springtime.
