April 16: Tallinn – Vabaõhumuuseum 2

More open air, more museum.

A church, with similar tectonics to the farm buildings.

6469

A small mill — you can see the water inlet at lower right.

6472

Here we were entering into an entire recreated village.

6473

Moss thatch + hypnodoors.

6474

Moss and lichen thatch, excuse me.

6477

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.

6482

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.

6485

Dang, more stereotomics/tectonics.

6494

A totally sweet swing in one of the yards.

6497

One of the more inviting roofs I've ever seen.

6499

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.

6501

A diversity of doors.

6502

Including another hypnodoor.

6503

And, at the edge of the village, the shore of the bay.

6509

Windmills, just chillin' in the back.

6512

The tree and the house look kind of like they're leaning into each other, like friends.

6519

A jetty similar in size and shape to the one at Kattrumpan on Utö.

6521

Blockbau joints.

6524

A well-ventilated interior.

6531

A nice deep porch.

6533

Many walls. (I think I see six of them.)

6545

6545.jpg

Moss stones, moss stone walls.

6552

Look at the steps up to the windmill.

6562

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.)
