Opened: AUGUST 16-19, 12:00-20:00

Building time: AUGUST 16-19, 17:00-20:00

Where: Salme 1a


Under the leadership of The School of Architecture, from August 16th to 19th a free play and building area, a junk playground, will be opened during the UIT Urban Festival to help young people to spend more time outdoors in a creative, active, and independent way. The festival along with the School of Architecture offers an opportunity for young people to move their activities back to the outdoors, where they can build, demolish, climb, play, and interact freely.



In today's urbanized outdoor spaces, there is a significant lack of environments that can provide young people with challenges and the joy of independence while still being accessible to all. Therefore, we decided to experiment with a temporary space in the courtyard of Karlova School – a play area created on the principle that children can engage autonomously with all sorts of junk.



There is no need to arrive at a specific time and everyone is free to engage in activities as they wish. There is no one to tell you what you are supposed to do or give you instructions. The agreement is that everyone must feel safe and everyone must have fun.



Kolahoov will be set up in the green area of Karlova School at Salme 1a, offering an exciting play and picnic area and other interesting activities during the UIT festival from August 16th to 19th.

The School of Architecture is a school for space magicians who learn how to create, look at and experience the environment around us with a fresh approach. After graduating from the School of Architecture a tree is no longer just a tree, or a corridor simply a corridor. The environment and the different objects in it acquire a new meaning for the pupils who experiment with the space and experience it through different exciting projects.  


The School of Architecture Tartu department is run by landscape architects Kristin Leis and Kerli Irbo.
