Building Of Dwelling Houses In Estonia

Building of Dwelling Houses in Estonia

Not wanting to analyze the building of dwelling houses in Estonia inefficiently
and seemingly scientifically (where would I have got competent statistics from),
I simply try to express the thoughts which are connected with that topics
somehow and have come into my mind. What kind of "scientific" analysis it could
be or who should make it, if even the architectural critics seem not to manage
with the simplest things. That reminds me an article in the EE some time ago
about a Finnish lady (naturally in Finland) completing or taking her doctor's
degree. She was examining Finnish post-war modern house, it's morphology, the
structure of the Finnish family, the connections between them and making
conclusions which extend to this day. Those observations about architecture were
much more smarter than those that the most of self-confident architects could do.
Unfortunately it has to be confessed that I don't remember such a research work
or sentiments in Estonian science, but no doubt, they could be necessary. The
typology of the houses used by most of the architects goes back to the living
model of the middle class at the end of the 19th century. That model was
idealized and carried on through a hundred of years up to the end of this
century. No doubt that our living style is changing — repeating banalities:
paradigm changes — as well as the composition and make-up of the family. There
was a news in a newspaper about Estonia which declared that 50 % of the children
are illegitimate (it is possible, of course, that some parents live together
without getting married officially) and 12,5 % of the born children know nothing
about their fathers. The living with grandparents is not so popular any more.
(As to the models of living it is worth of observing what has happened in North-
America — though some europercentage followers don't accept that — it may happen
that we will be on the same development level soon. In that country the grown-up
children don't want to live with their fathers and mothers, at least
statistically). Even such an every day activity as cooking is changing
essentially. An apartment or house is not a small production unit with its
storages, kitchen and dining room any more. The kitchen can be as presentable as
the dining room, also the furniture and the quality of the activities, they can
become more melted. There are some theorists who admit that not only eating but
washing procedures as well will leave the house to so-called town-social level.
In the house there will be only a bed, a computer for communication and toilet.
It won't happen so soon, but one has to keep an eye on that branch of
development. Talking into account the above mentioned statements it seems rather
logical that the present day "style of living" which is monofunctionally divided
into the units, should be replaced by a multifunctional and more universal room.
The architects can make their conclusions if they want to. The society is coming
more and more complicated, more individual-centered / individualized and that
ought to be reflected in the typological and functional development of the house
/ apartment. The situation in Estonia is a bit curious just now perhaps even
