The Great Public Spaces programme was launched two years ago to renovate the town centres, main squares and main streets of 16 towns and cities throughout Estonia by 2018-2020 in honour of Estonia’s centenary. The competitions have also been successfully completed in Kärdla, Põlva, Rapla, Valga, Pärnu, Tõrva and Võru, while the competitions for Narva and Jõhvi will be announced soon.

The organisers have hoped that the renovation of Estonian town centres will help bring people together and make the towns more inviting as a place to live. A more people-friendly and pleasant town centre should also help boost local business and foster a sense of community.  

The Great Public Spaces programme is being organised by the Estonian Association of Architects. Read more on the architectural programme here.
