Estonian Academy of Arts

 

The Estonian Academy of Arts gathers the art, architecture, design and art history academys into one building, stiching into the existing urban fabric through an art plaza.

The winning scheme allocated 50% of the site for a public plaza that extends into the building and spirals up through the floor plans, creating a series of indoor social spaces connected to the various programs in the building. At the top of the building it culminates in a public accessible roof terrace.

The new academy building is situated in the heart of Tallinn. The building contains facilities for the departments of art, architecture, design and art history. In addition to the academic programme, the project includes a library, gallery, shop, conference facilities and a public plaza, totaling 30.000 square meters. Quote from the Jury Report: “The Jury voted Art Plaza as the winner of the competition because it is by far the best proposal when it comes to architectural concept, outer qualities and inner life. The project is stunningly simple and at the same time fascinatingly complex.”
