WXCA's Winning Entry / Baltic Sea Park Competition

The Baltic Sea Art Park, designed by Warsaw based design studio WXCA, proposes a series of common exhibition spaces in downtown Pärnu, Estonia, on the edge of the Pärnu River. Folk art and professional work from artists of the Baltic Sea nations will be exhibited in a collection of floating pavilions. With nine countries being invited to exhibit, including Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Finland (with autonomous Aland), Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden, the "floating piazza" is intended to act as "a platform for exchange of the Baltic Sea culture that enables integration and interaction between all Baltic countries and their artistic heritage."
