April 16: Tallinn – Vabaõhumuuseum 2
More open air, more museum.
A church, with similar tectonics to the farm buildings.
A small mill — you can see the water inlet at lower right.
Here we were entering into an entire recreated village.
Moss thatch + hypnodoors.
Moss and lichen thatch, excuse me.
A subtraction from the roof and one from the wall.
This is some kind of stereotomic/tectonic thing just waiting to be pontificated on. It is quite nice how the heaviness of the materials increases two times (woven wall to Blockbau wall, and Blockbau to stone) from the roof to the ground.
Light from a roof vent. I'm not sure what the white globule is right near the vent, but I seem to recall that it might be a smoke alarm.
Dang, more stereotomics/tectonics.
A totally sweet swing in one of the yards.
One of the more inviting roofs I've ever seen.
This is around the left side of the above building. Nice how the two wings of the building are fused like a zipper by one of the lines of white stone.
A diversity of doors.
Including another hypnodoor.
And, at the edge of the village, the shore of the bay.
Windmills, just chillin' in the back.
The tree and the house look kind of like they're leaning into each other, like friends.
A jetty similar in size and shape to the one at Kattrumpan on Utö.
A well-ventilated interior.
A nice deep porch.
Many walls. (I think I see six of them.)
Moss stones, moss stone walls.
Look at the steps up to the windmill.
This is a pretty cool way to make a fence. (I like the goofy farmhouse in the center background. It looks like a catfish or something.)
