The exhibition TABULA – Arvo Pärt Centre by Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano, the architects of the Arvo Pärt Centre, will be opened on 8 December in Berlin’s prestigious Aedes Architekturforum, where it will introduce the architecture and conceptual points of departure for the new Arvo Pärt Centre building. The exhibition will be on view until 16 January 2018.
Construction works on the new building at the Arvo Pärt Centre have reached an important milestone: most of the building is now covered with a roof, and so reaches the maximum height of 10.55 metres. In celebration of this event, the Arvo Pärt Centre held a topping-out party to thank and treat the builders and the main contractor of the construction works, AS Ehitustrust.
On 19 June the cornerstone for Arvo Pärt Centre’s new building was laid at Laulasmaa, Estonia. Watch the video of the ceremony.

The Arvo Pärt Centre signes an agreement with Ehitustrust AS, a company that submitted the most reasonable tender to the public procurement for the construction of the new building. The construction of the building designed by the renowned Spanish architects will cost 6.69 million EUR, and will take an estimated 14 months. The completion of the new building will make it possible to open the Centre to anyone interested, and to introduce Arvo Pärt’s creative heritage through a comprehensive programme to Estonian audiences as well as foreign visitors. The Arvo Pärt Centre will open its doors in autumn 2018.
