“Architecture has to be greater than just architecture. It has to address social values, as well as technical and aesthetic values. On top of that, the one true gift that an architect has is his or her imagination. We take something ordinary and elevate it to something extraordinary.” Samuel Mockbee

Bachelors project “No stopping time”

The aim was to introduce the area structures and elements, which coherent with the area itsself and it´´s character. Time is constantly changing nothing can stop time. The verse “This road is an inessant chaing of being” inspired me to create a promenade to the Vaksali area (Tartu´´s historic rail station). It is supposed to be a place where people can walk and wonder into durning their journeys. A place where you can relax and feel the atmosphere of the Tartu train station these days, however, in the form of an open-air museum.

In promenade area you can explore different type of greenery or analyze old train exhibition. Beside the railway tracks there is a roud for walking and cycling. And adjoining the area would be 3-storey buildings with rooftop gardens. These would be prospectively be aimed to these people who see Tartu as transit point in their fast-paced life.

Time never stops!

3 Learning through the walk In September 2011 I visited Elva´s city goverment and I asked from them if they had any actual problems in Elva town. They said they would like to have a new design for the school gardens. So after that I started to study, what nowadays school childrens need are. I found out that the biggest problem is walking. Mostly this problem is expressed by the way that children don´t like to walk if walking isn´t an adventure. But moving develops child´s motor skills, as well as it has many positive implications. Often the school kids are battered and exhausted from schoolday and there is a rik of developing stress, but movement and hobbies, games helps to alleviete it. So if walking is so importent I would like to bring this to my design. But the other question was how i can put children to move and in the same time to learn. But then i undrestand that the adventures are always quite instructive. So I thought I should design intresting outdoors learning cames. An outdoors learning helps children to develop skills, knowleadge and undrestanding in a meaningful context. Children and young people are able to undrestand the relevance of subject taught in school to everday life. So ater that I made analysis about schools surroundings and I found that both schools have greaan areas with such a good potential for oudoors learning. So I had an idea about this area for walking and adventure - this all makes the outdoor leaning. Cause it´´s not enough when childrens only walk and play around the school houses, and as the fact two schools stand in different location, I needed to connect them somehow.

I made analysis about how people use leisure activities in Elva, in the case I had to find some extra areas for outside learing. I found out that good potentsial areas Are Verevi lake area, arbi lake area and trainstation area. So in analyze I described the use of the area and accessebilty and activities and what this area can offer for school children.

After that I had found all those good potential areas for outside learing, I needed to think how I can make students undrestand that all those areas are conntected?

I made vocabolary about connecting design elements. Like landmarks: I designed those wooden platform benches and multifucntional walls where different information is burned into the wood. Like how many steps you have to do to arrive at that area and so on. Also one linking elements between those areas are footprints in the ground. And this surface material combination. Its easy to undrestand when you are at outdoor learing area all those combinations repeat in small distance, but when you go away from this area those combinations repetitivness go in bigger distance. So designing outdoor learing games I used human 5 senses: like you see one intresting game on this wall with different specters, you can see the world through different colours. Listening: “Animal sounds game”: you can push the button and you can see the animals footprint and you have to guess what kind of animal makes this kind of sound. And as you undrestand I left out the sense about tasteing but I repleaced it with training. So I have areas that are ment for people of any ages...outdoor gymn,skatepark

So detail plan about Elva primary school. On main thing is that I left all the exsisting roads in curbed shape and new leading roads are more ancular. So most important thing is this: its stages and benches for perfomens, speeches, outside learning. And this “meurment area”. Where you can mesure how long is your one step, footprint and soe. And all these things are useful for games. Like the games with ceometrical elements when you have to count your steps by distance..or asphalt games.

On high school area I did not design so much How well do we consider with the needs of our games like I did in primary school garden, but this children in Estonia, take care of them and their school also has this stage and “mesurment area” wellbeing when designing hospital gardens.

Also there is this multifunctional wall, where you can look through..on the lower level you can see only grass, upper level water and higher level skye or forrest.

Master thesis “The healing power of childrens hospital garden”

How well do we consider with the needs of our children in Estonia, take care of them and their wellbeing when designing hospital gardens. No child should be in the hospital, but unfortunately reality is different. This master thesis tries to explain and introduce that theme to the landscape architects, facilities related to hospitals and to other people, who are interested. The aim of this master thesis is to review basics of healing gardens with the help of scientific theories. The master thesis includes a closer study of playing as one of the most important aspect when designing hospital gardens. Many other garden typologies are introduced because children’s hospitals are not always oriented on the same target group. For better understanding, I introduced four garden typologies, which are used around the world. The designs and guidelines of these four gardens were compared to find, whether these places follow guidelines when designing gardens and which garden has followed guidelines the most.

Paju manor Overview

Paju Manor (German:

Luhde-Großhof) was established in 1748 by detaching it from the Lugaži Manor (Luhde, nowadays in Latvia). From the 1850s to the dispossession in 1919 it belonged to the Stryks. The late-classicist two-storey main building was competed around 1860. Since 1960, a nursing home is operating in the manor. Paju is best known for Battle of Paju, one of the heaviest battles of the Estonian War of Independence. It took place on 31 January 1919 around the manor. The result was Estonian victory over the Soviets. The Tartu road (part of E264) passes through Paju. Also the Tartu–Valga railway is bordering Paju on its southeastern side.

Map of the battle of the Paju The Battle of Paju (Estonian: Paju lahing) was fought in Paju, near Valga, Estonia, on 31 January 1919 during the Estonian War of Independence. After heavy fighting, the Tartu–Valga group of the Estonian Army pushed the Red Latvian Riflemen out of the Paju Manor.[1] It was the fiercest battle in the early period of war. The Estonian commander Julius Kuperjanov fell in the fighting.
