A conceptual walk.
The area of Tallinn is 159 km2. The city is the narrowest in the middle, the distance between the sea and Lake Ülemiste being a mere 2.3 km and the relief of this section rising 37m. It is a traffic nuisance with frequent jams.
The walk follows a straight trajectory between the sea and the lake, offering a rough section of contrasting city environments – a park followed by vacant lots, highways and supermarkets next to calm back yards.
The walk took about two hours with approximately 50 people. All participants got a wooden ruler with a relevant map fragment.
