The Jury's Remarks
A thoroughly worked proposal where the forms of the runways are eschewed for geometries harvested from the surrounding neighbourhoods. This results in an urban pattern that is comfortable and familiar in the Reykjavík context. However the relationship with Vatnsmýri itself is less convincing and even though the density is apt the proposal has a suburban character. The scheme is internalised, lacking in expansion possibilities and offers few new urban opportunities.
