Design Challenge:

Klaksvik is the second largest town in the Faroe Islands. The town center has an amazing location by the sea. Through this urban design competition, Klaksvík

Municipality wants to make the town the ideal location for industry, retail trade, and cultural events – as well as residential. The main site of the competition is a landfill on the bay,—an underused area (see above).
