Abstract [en]

This paper examines the different components and usage of today’s urban public spaces. During the process I have used three different methods. First I made some studies of how public spaces have been used from a historical perspective. The aim was to get a better, broader understanding of the basics. Then, to examine the usage of a public space, Uppsala Central Railroad Station was chosen as the specific area of interest. The railroad station has then been observed and the result thoroughly analysed. The study has then been complemented by quantitative interviews with three key individuals that has been, or are active in the shaping of Uppsala Central Station as a public space.By doing this research of this public space I ́ve come to the conclusion that public spaces are full of complexity and that its formations can vary in many different ways. When studying Uppsala Central Railroad Station I ́ve come to the conclusion that it is a public space with many different usages and components such as a place for commerce, integration and a foundation for expressing democracy. A major conclusion from the study is that to keep a public space open to use from all different aspects, it takes common planning and corporation from all involved parties from the very beginning when planning and constructing a public space.
