The Estonian government has allocated funds for the construction of the new building for the Arvo Pärt Centre. Designed by Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano from the Spanish architecture firm, NietoSobejano Arquitectos, S.L.P, whose work “Tabula” was declared winner of the 2014 international architectural competition, the centre is aimed at introducing Pärt’s creative heritage through a comprehensive programme to Estonian audiences as well as foreign visitors.

“The new building will enable us to conduct various activities related to Arvo Pärt’s work, as a comprehensive personal archive and a research and study environment, mainly focusing on creation and creativity,” Anu Kivilo, the managing director of the centre, said in a statement.
