A New City Centre for Kiruna

Noema, along with design teams Aim, Onix and Farawaysoclose, has pre-qualified for the biggest ideas competition in Europe: that of moving the centre of Kiruna, the city in the north of Sweden which is progressively sinking due to long-term ore extraction from local mines. The competition attracted the best international names in architecture and design, and we are delighted to have been shortlisted to prepare a proposal that will include a cultural masterplan as well as creative ideas for how to live ‘on the move’.
