Võru Waterfront

The design strategy for the new Voru’s waterfront aims at reinforcing the connections between the town, its lake and the larger forested landscape. A series of collective “- scapes” operate as a set of poetic and pragmatic concepts, which, through the medium of architecture and urban design, establish a dialogue between contemporary values, the natural place, and the traditional Estonian culture.
