Unshackling Grandi 

A former island at the edge of the city center of Reykjavík called Örfirisey is now surrounded by landfills (land reclamation), which form a peninsula known as Grandi. On Örfirisey, stand Iceland’s largest oil reserves as the most prominent feature of Grandi. 

As the world moves away from fossil fuels, this project suggests a future, in which the oil reserves on Örfirisey are obsolete.  In this vision, Grandi serves a broad spectrum of roles while reinforcing the area’s current strengths, protecting what is already built as well as creating an attractive and inviting neighborhood.
