Contemporary Architecture in Tallinn. A Guidebook

25.06.2018
Our new guidebook "Contemporary Architecture in Tallinn" is ready to guide guests abroad and also local folks(!!!), around contemporary Tallinn!
The current book primarily invites you to explore the new and young Tallinn. Social upheavals have always helped the new generation to emerge. Like the most significant buildings of the 1960s–1970s “thaw” period were the creation of courageous architects who ignored the regulations, the 1990s–2000s offered an opportunity to the next generation of architects. This guide helps to understand how the Estonian society and architecture as its mirror have changed in the 20th and at the threshold of the 21st century. While in the mid-20th century, most unique designs were meant for public buildings, after the restoration of Estonia’s independence, more dwellings, office buildings and even modern sacred buildings can be highlighted.
The guide, which includes eight itineraries, offers a brief overview of exciting examples of present-day architecture. In addition to Tallinn, the guide presents a few buildings elsewhere in Estonia. Naturally, it is an appetiser rather than an exhausting overview. Additionally, the maps include references to museums, galleries, cafes, etc.
