Abstract [sv]

Det finns få andra platser i staden som har samma öppenhet och tillgänglighet som biblioteken. Det är viktiga platser för samhället som uppmuntrar gemenskap, utbildning och demokrati. I Sverige har man genom folkbiblioteken skapat ett offentligt rum med låga trösklar genom att göra dem tillgängliga för alla. Något som vi ser allt oftare idag är att biblioteken integreras med andra centrala funktioner som tunnelbanor och gallerior. Genom att strategiskt placera biblioteken på mer centrala och tillgängliga platser uppdateras bibliotekens relevans och attraktion, däremot förlorar de i många fall sin synlighet i stadsbilden och blir då ofta underordnade andra funktioner. Utgångspunkten för projektet har varit besök och observationer i 11 befintliga bibliotek vilket har varit grunden för projektets undersökning och förslag. Projektet diskuterar folkbibliotekens synlighet i stadsbilden och biblioteksrummens viktiga funktion som offentliga ytor genom att undersöka hur ett nytt bibliotek i Skärholmen skulle kunna ta form i anslutning till Skärholmstorget. 

Abstract [en]

There are few other places in the city that have the same transparency and accessibility as the libraries. These are important places for the society that encourage community, education and democracy. In Sweden, public libraries have created a public space with low thresholds by making them accessible to all. Something we see more often today is that the libraries are integrated with other central functions like subways and malls. By strategically placing the libraries in more central and accessible places, the relevance and attraction of libraries is updated, however, they lose their visibility in the cityscape and often become subordinate to these other functions. The starting point of the project has been visits and observations in 11 existing libraries, which has been the basis for the project's investigation and proposal. The project discusses the public libraries visibility in the cityscape and the library's important function as public spaces by investigating how a new library in Skärholmen could take shape in connection with the the main public square.
