Raine Karp
Raine Karp is an Estonian architect.

Beyond doubt, Karp has created the most bold examples of 1960s–1980s modernism in Estonia. Characterised by monumentalism, his designs often have a distinct Soviet feel to them. Prized on many occasions for his designs for different buildings, Karp was among the most known architects of the demised Estonian SSR.
