Strategy for development of the harbour area. Partly deserted after the downfall of the fishing industry, a rethinking of how the harbour area again can be the town’s advantage is necessary. How can the area’s empty buildings become a part of the city’s strategy? How can urban space tie new and existing program together. Is it possible to bring out the potential that can be found in the meeting between land and water? Can Vardø establish new arenas for locals, short time workers, tourists and possibly global nomads? Vardø asks for a strategy that discusses locations and concepts for a new town square, a swimming hall and a small aquarium. It also asks for ideas for re-use of the former fish factory “Proden” and a better use of urban space and communication throughout the harbour area.
