Arnold Alas (until 1939 Arnold Hoffart; 1 July 1911 – 20 April 1990) was an Estonian landscape architect and artist.
Alas was born in Tapa, and died, aged 80, in Tallinn. A notable work is the World War II memorial ensemble in Tallinn from 1947, nowadays usually called the Bronze Soldier, including a two-meter bronze statue (by Enn Roos) of a soldier in a Soviet uniform and an accompanying monumental stone structure. The memorial was relocated amid controversy in April 2007 to the Defence Forces Cemetery in Tallinn, Estonia.
