The Estonian exhibition for the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale was about to begin. This exhibition was held to investigates the relationship between time and space by discovering how venues once important have been abandoned and how these tendencies may carry on today and in the future. In this exhibition Linnahall – a dignified Modernist legacy in the heart of Tallinn that only a few decades ago was a renowned and requisite construction, yet is closed today, became the main object, since the exhibition poses a question as its title: “How long is the life of a building?”.
In this exhibition also will be shown a documentary film about the history and an emotional journey into the building, people’s stories related to Linnahall, a catalogue of intriguing photographs and essays, as well as thousands of free postcards to be distributed across Venice. The catalogue of “How long is the life of a building?” includes essays from a wide spectrum of cultural theorists, writers, historians as well as architects.
