Report of the Expert Group on Spatial Creation
Ruumilise loomise eksperdirühma aruanne
2017 - 2018
The Spatial Creation Expert Group worked at the State Chancellery from July 2017 to September 2018. The task of the expert group was to investigate the state of spatial creation in the country's public sector and to make proposals for improvement. The aim of the expert group was to identify the decision-making processes that influence the shaping and direction of the country's spatial development and living environment and to develop the necessary policy proposals for the development of the sector.
The purpose of this analysis is to present a concept for deciding on the establishment of an “architect of architecture” (“state architect”). The "Commissioner for Architecture" is a neutral and conditional title for an institution that should deal with architecture and spatial planning issues at national level. The concept first addresses the general starting points that necessitate the need for a separate institution for planning and architecture. Further consideration is given to the possible institutional status of the Commissioner for Architecture. One of the objectives of the Government Action Program for 2007-2011 is to codify construction and planning law.
