Linkages The Rakvere Vabaduse Square is proposed to be the most significant public square in the City of Rakvere with St Paul’s Church, Arvo Pärt Hall, being its most prominent building. The proposed building purposed itself to establish links to the site’s existing
historical context, to proposed contemporary use and to Arvo Pärt’s music’s minimalist quality. The serial patterning that clothes the new building emanates from St.Paul’s Church’s rhythmic structure. The mapping process is a singular move defined by light.
The pattern echoes outward and is architecturally mapped onto the square. Light becomes a single triad in one or more voices open to interpretation and is the physical barometer of activities on the Square and within the Arvo Pärt Hall.
