OPEN DAY at the Interior Architecture Department: fish, forest, sauna.
To properly celebrate the ESTONIAN ACADEMY OF ARTS OPEN DAY, the Interior Architecture Department will CLOSE all of its doors. You *can* however walk straight into the department quarters through our WINDOWS at Nunne Street 16. Just look for a wooden installation leading the way.
The day is an absolute MUST for anyone who is contemplating becoming a student at the Interior Architecture Department in near or more distant future.
Our six-hour programme is run entirely by students this year. On stage, there will be presentations of the brightest projects of the last year, presented by our students from freshmen year to MA. You will also not go on an empty stomach: there will be appetizers, soup, main course and dessert, with a running theme of FISH.
What we suggest especially is sneaking into the department kitchen and becoming part of the catering team, because that is truly the best place to get an idea of what our Department is all about. Also, you might want to bring a towel, because the unofficial after party will be all about the sauna.
