Design Idea

The aim of the project was to analyze the current situation in the area in the centre of Tartu and based on the found data to work out a design that comprises building and recreation area.

The main design idea is a yellow line that flows through both these areas. The line follows the directions of movement and creates surfaces that are covered with material people can walk on. There is one main road going through the area and the other moving directions are covered by the line. The line also breaks the boundary that is created by the Vanemuise and Ülikooli street by going through it. The line itself is covered with rubber surface and in some places it rises higher creating places to sit or even a bit more playful elements.
