The many sides of estonian architecture can be seen at the Museum of estonian architecture.

 

It’s worth a visit to the museum just to see the museum building, the Rotermann Salt Storage. The museum will open its doors on February 13, after being closed for technical renovations. The Museum of Estonian Architecture will reopen with a permanent display of 20th century Estonian architecture, as well as three temporary exhibits opening at the end of the month.

“The layout of the museum hasn’t changed, but the permanent exhibit of Estonian architecture on the main floor will have a new setup”, explains Triin Ojari, the museum’s director. “In the main hall of temporary exhibitions, we will be featuring the work of Nieto Sobejano Architects. Their winning design for the new Arvo Pärt Centre is among the many cultural buildings this renown Spanish office has created during the last years. The Pärt Centre is set to be completed by 2018 in Laulasmaa.

Visitors can also look forward to an exhibit in the gallery, of the works of the 1930s architect, Roman Koolmar. “Koolmar designed many buildings for the state, and while he may not be that well known, it is our mission here at the museum to introduce the public to all aspects of Estonian architecture”, explains Ojari. Koolmar escaped via Germany to the United States during World War Two and continued his work in Detroit. This work is also featured in the exhibit.

The window and the mirror. Nieto Sobejano Architects. 14.02.-22.03. 2015
