The Arctic Circle is a landscape reading exercise, ready to become a new door to the city of Murmansk

In an effort to materialize the plot’s palimpsest value, the floorplan composition is inspired by the organically growing tracks, traced by the people’s usage of the area throughout the years. Hence, the Arctic Circle is a landscape reading exercise, ready to become a new door to the city of Murmansk. Used as a shelter for the citizens to escape their everyday routines, actively enjoy the outdoors, ,and feel connected with their landscape.
