The natural elements are used as a driving force for positive urban life in Akureyri, Iceland with the snow accumulation as a leader to unite the town in a physical and social way. The elements of snow buildup in the urban environment are used to find ways to give the town added value in the form of recreational opportunities and commuting routes. Additionally using a system of snow storage to minimize problems due to build up of snow piles and flooding during thaw events.
