Location: Kalaranna 1 (in Kalamaja district)
Duration: 5 June – 22 October 2011
The pier located by the Culture Kilometre has weathered and deformed over decades and become unfit for landing boats. However, it would be perfect for sitting, relaxing, sunbathing, skateboarding and fishing. Its existing condition was converted for another use by simple means: by examining the safety of the slanting concrete faces and covering them with terrace boards. The boarded surfaces followed the shapes of the concrete slabs that had been created upon disintegration. Thus, a derelict and crumbling object was revived as part of modern urban space, opening up the seaside area of Tallinn for local people and for visitors.
