TALLINN | Art Plaza - KunstiAkadeemia

Hello from Estonia!

I want to ask your opinion about new building. This is new Estonian Academy of Arts and it will be ready in April 2011.

It really is a great modern building, isn't it?
There's still a lot to do though before the inner city of Tallinn feels urban, much of it is still a wasteland of gaps between houses, not to mention the mishmash of architectural styles that lacks any feeling of completeness whatsoever.

Oh, and deconstruction work on the old building started yesterday.

the building isn't daring, but aesthetic for sure. if the right materials are used and the detailing is good it might turn out very nice BUT, the best thing about this project is that an art university is getting a modern facility! Fantastic! Congratulations!

cheers from LT

As mentioned,demolition of the old Art Academy building is currently under way. It should be finished in late summer/autumn,at that time construction of the new highrise should start.

Here's the project on Estonian Art Academy webpage: http://www.artun.ee/index.php?lang=eng&main_id=1025

..and few photos of the site,taken yesterday:

It won't be long now (probably just few months),before construction of new Art Plaza building starts.

Probably just few more days of demolition.


How cool is that? You can almost imagine new building standing here


Deadline for demolition is 25th July,but looks like they manage to end it before deadline. After that some archaeological excavations are planned here (it was location of ancient settlement) and once archaeologists finish,we should finally see construction

I think that the design doesnt match for the Academy of Arts, it lacks imagination...

Haha, too bad that this building will never exist, I really liked the design.

Now it's just a parking lot, they should build something there instead of the flat square of land.
