Zaha Hadid Architects Wins Contract for Port of Tallinn in Estonia

For their dazzling, sprawling, and characteristically curvaceous reimagining of the city’s maritime gateway, our friends at Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) have been officially awarded the contract to masterplan the revitalization of the Old City Harbour in Tallinn, Estonia. According to Valdo Kalm, chairman of the management board of the Port, ZHA “has very skillfully created a balanced connection between the urban space and the port area with…considered access roads and traffic solutions.” Details of note here include the partial raising up of pedestrian walkways, and plans for an urban square with extensive greenery. This project has been undertaken in an attempt to reconnect the city to the port while welcoming new development and creating a diverse and memorable city space.
