Kiruna is the northernmost town in Sweden. There is a plan to move the old Kiruna city and then build a new Kiruna city. When we interviewed the inhabitants, they expressed the wish for meeting places. The green challenge is that how this public space is adaptive to the summer and extreme long and cold winter and satisfies the demand and use of the inhabitants here. The public art here should offer the inhabitants a flexible space for their public life, namely a warm place in winter and an attractive space for diverse activities. This project is to find possible attractive public art that could be applied in this space both in winter and summer and cater to the local needs.
