Tallinn Architecture Biennale has announced the vision competition “Epicentre of Tallinn” to find a design solution for intersections in the future, when only self-driving cars will drive on the city streets. The international one-stage architecture competition invites entries by the end of May. Read on to learn more.

When self-driving cars become the norm, how will our cityscapes and public spaces change? This is the focal question for "Epicentre of Tallinn," using the historic Viru Intersection to explore the design possibilities within the city of Tallinn. Competitors are being asked to transform the intersection back into the city square it once was by taking cues from the projected technological shifts of the future.

Curated by Arhitekt Must and organized in cooperation with the Estonia Centre of Architecture and Tallinn City, "Epicentre of Tallinn" is open to student and professional architects, landscape architects, and urbanists. Entries will be judged by a three-person panel and displayed at the Viru Keskus shopping center from September 9 to October 4, 2015. The winning designs will receive monetary awards.
