Abstract
The VLTI (Very Large Telescope Interferometer) is one of the operating modes of the VLT, presently being built on Cerro Paranal, Chile. It aims at providing access to an observing mode at very high angular resolution and very high sensitivity (with respect to the currently operating astronomical interferometers). After a long period of conceptual, then detailed, studies, ESO is starting to build and to procure the main components of the interferometer in order to open this unpaired observing facility by the turn of the century.
