Barents Urban Survey

The increased activity in the Barents region has already begun to change the content and fabric of the urban north. The continued regional development will involve meetings and fusions amongst an array of cultures and styles, between history and modernization, between civilization and nature, between east and west, between nations looking for resources and towns and cities hoping to get a share, all staged in a vast landscape with widespread urban nodes. The question is how these encounters will play out.

Northern Experiments – The Barents Urban Survey 2009 is a collaborative effort to discuss selected key cities and urban phenomena in the Barents Region. The project is directed by 0047 in co-operation with Pikene på Broen.
