Kiruna located 145 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Swedish town of almost 22900 inhabitants is known to be home to one of the world’s largest iron mines – supplying 90% of Europe’s needs. To survive, the city needs to move away. It is a gradual and continuous work, which has already raised many questions on both the architectural and social fronts.

The new masterplan will utilize resources efficiently, harnessing the enormous amounts of waste heat generated by the mining activity, combined with wind turbines to generate energy and recycling infrastructure to reduce freight and waste. More about Kiruna: Research Book; The Arctic & Kiruna:
