A Home for Dr Spock

spocks house tallinn

Noted Estonian avant-garde architect Tiit Kaljundi designed this building in 1975 (the perspective drawing is actually from 1984). The competition, “House for a Superstar” was announced by Japan Architect magazin, and though the topic seems to be quite far from an architect living in Soviet Estonia, Kaljundi decided to run and design a home for the famous American pediatrician and children’s book author Benjamin Spock.
