Urban Delta is a concept for a new neighborhood in Reykjavik, addressing 10 key challenges regarding sustainability, inclusiveness, resilience, circularity and urban design. We neutralized the problem of emissions by integrating an on-site tree nursery and sustainable ways of building into the plan. Modular building systems could be adapted following future developments. Simultaneously, the spatial layout of the masterplan intended to establish a lively and inclusive community amongst its new residents.
The proposal was a finalist in the C40 Reinventing Cities competition, where multiple cities participated in worldwide.
