on the boards: Tallinn City Hall

Like most projects by BIG the architecture is derived by rationalised organisational principle, this time to maximize natural lighting by breaking up the building function into small blocks - this allows for courtyards to be created at various levels as well open up the ground floor as an extension of the city
