Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport undersöks hur vackra stadsmiljöer kan skapas med estetiskt motiverad utformning och dekorativa element samt hur detta kan göras med äldre ideal. För att få en inblick i hur synen på dessa frågor kan se ut i dagsläget gjordes en kort litteraturstudie där exempel på argument från debatten sammanställdes. Därefter genomfördes en fallstudie för Sankt Eriksområdet som analyserades utifrån frågeställningen hur vackra miljöer skapats i detta projekt samt hur äldre ideal tillämpats. Resultaten från litteraturstudien och fallstudien knyts ihop i en avslutande diskussion. Det konstateras att Sankt Eriksområdets gestaltningsarbete inte hade som syfte att skapa vackra miljöer men att det däremot funnits en arkitektonisk ambition om att skapa ett område med kontinuitet och variation i harmoni. Detta innebar ett arbetssätt som i flera avseenden påminner om det som förespråkarna av ”vacker” arkitektur i litteraturstudien efterfrågar. Gestaltningsarbetet har haft platsen som utgångspunkt. Denna ligger i Stockholms innerstad som till större delen byggdes under den gamla stenstadens tid. Det föll sig därför naturligt att genomföra projektet med inspiration från äldre ideal men samtidigt anpassat efter projektets specifika förutsättningar. Det som byggdes var ingen kopia av stenstaden men å andra sidan gestaltades det efter samma principer.

Abstract [en]

This report investigates how aesthetically motivated design and decorative elements could be used in order to create beautiful urban environments and how this could be achieved with traditional design. In order to gain some insight in how those questions are viewed today, a short literature study was made in which examples of arguments used in the debate were put together. Thereafter a case study was carried out which searched to answer the questions how beautiful environments were created in the building project of Sankt Eriksområdet in Stockholm and how this was made with traditional design. The results from the literature study and the case study were then finally summarized and discussed together. The conclusion is made that Sankt Eriksområdet wasn’t designed with the specific purpose to create beautiful environments. On the other hand there was an architectural ambition with the purpose to create continuity and variation in harmony and the work to achieve this goal reminds of what the proponents of “beautiful” architecture in the literature study asks for. The projects design was based on its location. Since the place of the project was located in the inner city of Stockholm, which largely consists of old and traditionally designed buildings, the implementation of traditional design became a naturally choice. Together with traditional design the project was designed to suit the specific conditions of the place and therefore the result wasn’t a copy of the inner city but a unique result built after the same principles.
