The Festive Part of the Assembly
For the second year, the ESL nominated its honorary members. By a decision of the advisory board, Mait Summatavet, the living classic of Estonian interior architecture and a fresh holder of the Order of the White Star was given the title of honorary member of the ESL.
The new office of the ESL at 4 Rüütli St. in the Tallinn Old Town, to the completion of which a large number of good partners made a contribution, were also formally opened by the general assembly.
According to Urmo Vaikla, the first own office of the ESL is a great step forward and a good motivation for the further development of the profession and mutual communication between the members.
