This urban design competition has been arranged by Klaksvík Town Municipality located in the northern part of the Faroe Islands. This brief is the basis of the urban design competition for the town center in Klaksvík and the competition outline is arranged by Klaksvík Municipality in cooperation with Selmar Nielsen Arkitektur and the competition conditions of Arkitektafelag Føroyar. The competition is open to all. Proposals are due by 27th April 2012 at the latest.
Over the last 200 years, Klaksvík 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 Klaks- vík with a masterplan for a new town center.
