Deformation never stop after relocation of city centre and areas with higher threat. In 2060, half of the city space will be under deformation. The municipality needs to look for space to relocate the ‘refugees’.

A ! E N V U KIR HE MO T N O Underground mining continues, deformation became more severe. The Old Kiruna will be totally “eaten up by crack�.

New Kiruna is on the threat.

Mines in different sites have started drilling for a while, and most of the neighboring area are bought by mining companies for explorations and drilling. Seems there is no save ground to move?

A ! E N V U KIR HE MO T N O Where to move THIS TIME?


A ! E N V U KIR HE MO T N O How big is the scale of this move?

Because of unfavourable living condition,people (especially youth) move out of Kiruna every year.

Because of mining, the Kiruna city is moving and expected to be on move every decades.

If Kiruna is just a mining town three possible sceniros in 2090:

population unchanged

RESIDENCE FOR 18,000 ?

New technology development, on site mining workers are no longer needed, the city of Kiruna may not be needed, population decreased dramatically. RESIDENCE FOR 1,000 ?

CITY CENTRE

Development of neighbour mining sites brings labours to the area, Kiruna develops as the HUB of the northern Scandinavia

The dream of MODEL CITY? RESIDENCE FOR 38,000 ?


A ! E N V U KIR HE MO T N O Speculation: Moving Kiruna is not about moving house. It is about regeneration of the social landscape and eco-system. Is the current ‘refugee way of relocation’ a sustainable way to rebuild a city? Kiruna was built to be an ideal town, Mining , created the town but it ‘s also destroying. Can mining and the city co-exist sustainably? Where does Kiruna go the next? Or .... does Kiruna still exist in the next century? Where is the dream of model city? What are we going to do with the after-mined and deformed landscape?
