Plan for "Kiruna 4 Ever" chosen

The city of Kiruna decided on Monday what its new incarnation will look like. Moving to avoid the mines that honeycomb the ground under this northern city, Kiruna is to be entirely rebuilt a few kilometres east. Today the firm White Architects from Stockholm was chosen as the winners of the contest to build new Kiruna, with their proposal, named "Kiruna 4 ever".

On the 26th of march the municipal council will meet to decide whether to confirm this plan.
