TAB 2019 International Architecture Schools’ Exhibition “Terribly Beautiful



Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2019 Architecture Schools’ exhibition ”Terribly Beautiful!” investigates school as a facility for getting (terribly) lost and making (terrible) mistakes. The best school project is not necessarily the one rated with the top grade, but the one that restructures it’s author by taking them to unknown path prone to failure – a crucial part of creative process.
TAB International Architecture Schools‘ Exhibition is part of TAB Main Programme and includes the latest work of academic institutions that teach architecture in various parts of the world. TAB 2019 Architecture Schools’ Exhibition is curated by young Estonian architects: Merlilin Kaup, Margus Tammik and Ulla Alla and will be exhibited in September 2019 at Estonian Academy of Arts gallery.
