16.11.2021 International competition for the concept to renovate Norilsk assessed highly by WWCAM


The 19th Conference of the World Winter Cities Association for Mayors continues. On November 15, a WWCAM (World Winter Cities Association for Mayors) group session on “Infrastructure and Architecture for All” was held. Participants were from Rovaniemi (Finland), Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia), Hwacheon (South Korea), Sapporo (Japan), Harbin (China), Novosibirsk and Norilsk.

The design code of a modern winter city was discussed actively. According to the speakers, well-considered design allows both creation of comfortable spaces, taking into account the needs and wishes of different groups of population, as well as protection of cities from uncontrollable changes. 

The idea of an international competition was warmly supported by WWCAM participants. Another initiative of Norilsk especially welcomed by representatives of the winter cities of the world is the involvement of the Norilsk residents in the city’s renovation: a strategy session with the people of Norilsk was held to formulate key priorities of the city’s renovation.
