Thinking about an increasingly nomadic society that needs to adapt to the economic circumstances and to climate change, the dissertation aims to find a balance between anthropological and environmental needs in the extreme context of Kiruna. This city is an opportunity to imagine a possible spatial translation of a ‘liquid’ society. Its strong relevance in the contemporary scene is its floating in a perpetual condition of change and movement, until the necessity for its relocation due to the iron mine expansion.
The thesis moves from a deep analysis of Kiruna territory and passes through the research of the main constants that influence the foundation of cities. The project addresses the theme of the limit by creating an unusual relationship between inside and outside, natural and artificial.
