TAB Tallinn Vision Competition "Epicentre of Tallinn"

The aim of the vision competition "Epicentre of Tallinn" is to find a design solution for intersections in the future, when only self-driving cars will drive on the city streets. Tallinn’s central traffic junction, the Viru intersection, was chosen as the test site. The vision competition seeks answers to the questions how driverless cars will alter the cityscape and the public space, and what will be the idea of the new public space?
