Abstract (in English)

The Estonian SSR is one: of the westernmost republics in the Soviet Union, situated on the east coast of the Baltic Sea;. Due to its location in the heart of the Northt all European architectural trends from the 13th-century Romanesque up to the 20th century postmodernism have left their traces on the Estonian architecture. On the other hand, the Estonian peasant architecture is extremely individual. This is vividly expressed by the log-walled thatch-roofed building, a unique combination of a dwelling and a threshing barn, designed both for living and ing up bread corn.
