Abstract [sv]

Det finns indikationer på att arkitekturen i Sverige upplevs som mer och mer enformig med avsaknad av estetiska kvaliteter. Arkitekter får bära ansvaret för påståendet, men själva menar de att de fråntagits sin ställning i byggprocessen där de byts ut under pågående projekt, underordnade ekonomiska intressen.

Målet med arbetet var att ta reda på vad som händer med en byggnads estetiska kvaliteter när arkitekten byts ut samt vad som ligger bakom att bytet sker. En jämförelse mellan två objekt gjordes, ett där arkitekten varit med under hela processen och ett där arkitekten blivit utbytt. Studien utfördes genom faktainsamling från litteratur, observationer och intervjuer.

Resultatet visar att viljan att bygga vackert med estetiska kvaliteter är starkt kopplat till beställarens ambitionsnivå. Det sammantagna resultatet visar dock på att estetiska värden underordnas ekonomi i byggprocessen. Vidare har det framkommit under arbetets gång att det råder kunskapsbrist och kommunikationssvårigheter mellan aktörer i byggbranschen, framförallt mellan arkitekt och entreprenör.

Abstract [en]

There are indications that the architecture in Sweden is perceived as more and more monotonous with the absence of aesthetic qualities. Architects are allowed to bear responsibility for the claim but they themselves believe that they deprived their position in the construction process where they are replaced under ongoing projects, ancillary financial interests.

The goal of the work was to find out what happens to a building's aesthetic qualities when the architect is replaced and what lies behind the replacement of the architect. A comparison of two objects was made, one in which the architect has been involved throughout the process and one where the architect has been replaced. The study was conducted through fact-finding from literature, observations and interviews.

The result shows that the desire to build beautifully with aesthetic qualities is strongly linked to the client's level of ambition. However, the overall result shows that aesthetic values are subordinated to the economy of the construction-process. Furthermore, it has emerged during the work with this essay that there is a lack of knowledge and difficulties in communication between the actors in the construction industry, especially between architects and contractors.
