After the atheist policies of the Soviet Union, the beginning of the era of regained independence saw a marked rise in religious life and the building of a number of new churches. One of these was Tallinn Methodist Church, built upon a landmark location on the border of Kadriorg and the city centre. Vilen Künnapu opted for a somewhat deconstructed form, with tension between the curved main body and its angular tower. The tower encloses the entire main hall; the lower part houses a library, accommodations and auxiliary rooms. Besides religious ceremonies, the hall is often used for concerts as well.
