Abstract [en]

Today, more than 50 percent of people worldwide live in urban areas and the World Health Organization predicts that the urbanization of our planet will continue to increase. Question is how the rural communities will evolve?  Will they simply become remains from out past, or will they play a part in our future societies? 

Village Reimagined is a case study about the sparsely populated communities in Iceland. Why they are struggling and how the circle of decline could be turned around. The project concluded in a transformation and a reimagination of the small icelandic village Bíldudalur in the southern parts of the West fjords.
