MODERN DOME FOR HISTORICAL WATER TOWER
The water tower proposed for remodelling is located within a modern technology park that combines old and new architecture. The existing water tower is an octagonally laid out four-storey building, for which we have designed a top, inspired by church domes. It would be a myth observation tower for exhibiting legends related to Tallinn and using those legends to present the history of the region. The best-known myth is about the Old Man of Ülemiste, who has promised to flood the city of Tallinn with water from Lake Ülemiste when the city is finally complete. However, Ülemiste City as well as the city of Tallinn are in constant development and will never be complete.
