Giant Megaphones Installed in the Woods So You Can Hear The Forest
In September, students from the Interior Architecture Department at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Estonia installed three gigantic wooden megaphones that let you listen to naturally amplified sounds of the surrounding forest.
The student project was executed in collaboration with the Estonian Forest Management Centre and the multi-purpose megaphones also double as a sitting and resting area as well as a stage for small events.
Megaphones built in Tallinn at the end of August and then shipped to Võrumaa, Pähni Nature Centre—not far from Latvian border—where it has been installed and opened to the public as of September 18th.
The project was led by Birgit Õigus, with the rest of her coursemates Mariann Drell, Ardo Hiiuväin, Lennart Lind, Henri Kaarel Luht, Mariette Nõmm, Johanna Sepp, Kertti Soots and Sabine Suuster helping out with the building process.
