Abstract [en]

Despite all great words about public architecture with democracy and everyone's equal value in mind, I believe that a future belief and a common idea can often be lacking today. In my work, I have therefore decided to examine how a Town Hall can be used as a tool for creating a natural connection between citizens and authorities. Can the design of a Town Hall help to construct the democratic citizen? Can politics find its place in everyday life? My ambition has been to concretise the idealistic slogans.I have developed a number of requirements that the new Town Hall in Nynäshamn should match:- Create a Town Hall with an open cultural arena in center where the municipality appears as citizens own organisation rather than an authority. I am convinced that this aspect is at least as important as a functional program or attractive design.- A Town Hall that gives an insight into the authority's work. The politics must be visible and accessible for an ordinary citizen.- A flexible public solution that matches the requirements of change.- A distinct program that gives an understanding of the logic of the building, both interior and exterior.

Abstract [sv]

Trots stora ord om offentlig arkitektur med demokrati och allas lika värde i åtanke, anser jag att en framtidstro och en gemensam idé ofta kan saknas idag. I mitt arbete har jag därför bestämt mig för att undersöka hur ett stadshus kan användas som verktyg för att skapa en naturlig koppling mellan medborgare och myndighet. Kan formgivningen av ett stadshus bidra till att konstruera den demokratiska medborgaren? Kan politiken finna plats i det vardagliga livet? Min ambition har varit att konkretisera de idealistiska slagorden.Jag har tagit fram ett antal krav som det nya stadshuset i Nynäshamn skulle uppfylla:- Skapa ett stadshus med en öppen kulturarena i centrum där kommunen framstår som medborgarnas egna organisation snarare än en myndighet. Jag är övertygad om att den aspekten är minst lika viktig som ett funktionellt program eller en tilltalande design.- Ett stadshus som ger en inblick i myndighetens arbete. Politiken ska vara synlig och tillgänglig för den vanliga medborgaren.- En flexibel offentlig lösning som följer förändringens krav.- Ett tydligt program som ger en förståelse för byggnadens logik såväl interiört som exteriört.
