A group of Soviet-era nine-storey apartment blocks are going to be insulated in the near future. The houses are situated in the biggest Soviet-era residential areas - Annelinn. The nine-storey giants are presently finished with North-Estonian limestone gravel, standing out in the dominantly five-storey colourful painted buildings. To keep their outstanding nature with a new finishing, a concept was worked out to transform the empty walls into an open-air art exhibition. Illustrations created by Estonian graphic artists in 1920ies and 1930ies are to be enlarged onto the empty walls with names of the pieces written underneath.
