The curatorial exhibition by the Estonian Association of Architects is a free creative format for architects to put forward various ideas for consideration by the wider audience. This time the exhibition “Nearly Zero” on energy efficiency harnesses architecture with all its might to the cart of sharp social criticism. It does not exhibit attractive photographs or models, instead you see analytical diagrams and illustrations measuring the size of the carbon footprint of the construction sector and suggesting more economical solutions. The exhibition addresses a highly current and necessary issue making the problems related to climate change in Estonia stick out a mile for the society to take them seriously and look for solutions.
