NEKTON's project for Vatnsmyri, Reykjavik, Iceland. ' Turf City ' is a
2nd place group prize winning finalist out of 136 entries.
Our vision for Vatnsmyri sets out to develop a clear local/global
identity for a site that stands in strong relation with the existing
region and future city of
Reykjavik. We call this new urban region Turf City.
Turf City has been conceived from the traditional Icelandic turf houses
and the relationship with the landscape/ground, the space it produces
these instances blur between each other. Our aim is to use these
conditions as an architectural rule for generating a new urban condition
that offers the
desired spatiality of evolved European cities and the functionality of
designed cities of the 20th century, with a strong spatial and formal
ambiance we see as Icelandic.
