Abstract [en]

In this work, I address challenges of situated alienation from people and place. Using interaction design for placemaking, light is shed on a design space of social places with opportunities for planned and spontaneous activities to be done alone, with known people or with strangers. In research through design, four conceptual design instances were created, drawing from

first-person and participatory perspectives, to unpack potentials for engagement and considerations for encompassing respect (meaning vigilant of neoliberal capitalist and masculine power relations). I contribute with sensitizing questions making interaction design aspects more accessible for designers entering this public design space.

Abstract [sv]

Detta arbete fokuserar på utmaningar om platsbaserad främlingskap från människor och platsen ifråga. Interaktionsdesign används här för placemaking, där en designrymd för sociala platser med möjligheter för spontana och planerade aktiviteter att utföra ensam, med vänner eller med främlingar utforskas. Genom en research through design-metodik med förstapersons- och participatory-perspektiv skapades fyra designkoncept som användes för att tydliggöra potentialer för engagemang och omtanke för allomslutande respekt (vilket berör neoliberala kapitalist och maskulina maktrelationer). Jag bidrar med känsliggörande frågor som gör interaktionsdesignsaspekter mer tillgängliga för designers som ger sig i kast med denna publika designrymd.
