The Fascinating Home of the National Archives of Estonia

Noora, the new main building of the National Archives of Estonia, opened in February 2017. It’s remarkable in many respects. Its walls contain a trove of archived pieces of the past, strung together in a web of storytelling and written records, but the historic records are just one piece of Noora’s appeal.

The building’s exterior is the first thing to grab people’s attention. Its front side is covered with a textile showing a groove motif, which both mimics the human brain and represents the twists, turns, and triumphs one encounters while exploring. The black and white canvas is so big it wraps around the structure’s sides. Look closely, and you’ll see the labyrinth has two openings and can actually be solved.
