Struve exhibition in the Võivere windmill

During the renovation, the Võivere windmill got furbished with an exhibition on the history of the Struve Arc. The Struve Geodetic Arc is nominated UNESCO World Heritage Site as it was a revolutionary science project of the time defining the size and the shape of the Globe. Võivere windmill was one of the significant measurement points on this project. In cooperation with the windmill family and Tartu Observatory researchers, we created design and exhibition solutions that make practical use of the entire interior of the mill. The exhibition on the three floors tells the story of Stuve´s measurement efforts of the arc, explains his method of triangulation and results. You can read, listen and play.
