The fifth edition of Tallinn Architecture Biennale has announced an open call for its Vision Competition. TAB 2019, which will take place September 11 to November 3, is dedicated to the theme "Beauty Matters: the Resurgence of Beauty" and it is curated the London-based architect and researcher Dr. Yael Reisner. The winning project codes will be announced by the end of January 2019. Winning authors will be announced in September 2019 during the award ceremony at TAB 2019.
