Nordic Look 2012 in Estonia – architecture and urban space

Nordic Look will take place in Estonia for the second time and will highlight the problems of architecture and urban space at various events held from 15-30 May, which will lead to discussions and create opportunities for closer cooperation between Estonia and the Nordic countries in this area. Nordic Look 2012 is organized by the Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Estonia, the Estonian Centre of Architecture and Creative Estonia.

The greater goal of Nordic Look is to support and steer sustainable development in the Baltic Sea region. The series of events started as far back as in 2006 when the information office of the Nordic Council of Ministers in St Petersburg launched Nordic Look in order to bring Nordic and Russian fashion designers together. The Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Latvia also organised Nordic Look in autumn 2008. Last year, Nordic Look in Estonia contributed to the development of an environmentally responsible and innovative fashion, design and textile industry as part of events organised to mark Tallinn's status as European Capital of Culture 2011. The concept of temporary or pop-up shops became widely used in the country as a result of the event, and young fashion designers and companies in Estonia and the Nordic countries became interested in working together.
