The Future Of Kiruna — The Ultimate Restoration Challenge

Mejan Arc, Architectural Conservation, 2009/2010
Course on advanced level, 60 ECTS.


This project focused on one of the largest infrastructure and restoration projects of our time; the renovation and gradual moving of Kiruna’s central area, a community project on a global scale. Is it possible to move an entire town? How should the individual buildings be built or reconstructed and how should they interact with the landscape? What is possible, and desirable, to move and in what condition should it be rebuilt: as it is today, as it was when new or in a more modern style? Can authenticity be retained?
