Arctic Present. The Case of Teriberka


Arctic Present. The Case of Teriberka


This project looks at the future of northern urbanism as a decentralized network of nomadic coastline settlements.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

In the Land with open borders live the people with open minds. In this project, Barents Region evolves in a self-sustained Land. New Blue Economy shall be established in the network of the coastline settlements of the Barents Sea and the White Sea. This project suggests turning the coastal settlements to autonomous functioning. While remaining dependent on the weather and natural environment conditions, they shall adapt to such vibrant seasonality and profit from it where possible.
There is considerable potential for the Kola Peninsula coast to live autonomously based on renewable wind energy. Once deployed, the para-kites system would serve for the dynamic and publicly accessible process of harvesting the wind energy in the Arctic and Teriberka particularly. Unlike the settle towns with constantly increasing demands, Teriberka is in need of the principles and structures capable of varying in scale or to be moved whenever needed - intellectually and physically.
