Winners of the International Competition for Klaksvík City Center, Faroe Islands. Denmark. Post of the call competition.
The central part of town is virtually undeveloped and the competition for providing Klaksvík with a masterplan for a new town center.
Over the last 200 years, Klaksvik has grown from five settlements of a mere 100 people to a modern town of 5000 inhabitants. The large and swift population growth was triggered by the growing fishing industry, which led to the development of the areas along the shore for industrial purposes. The central part of town is virtually undeveloped and with a recent landfill in the center area, where the shore used to be, you are now invited to enter the contest for providing Klaksvík with a masterplan for a new town center.
