Abstract [sv]

Strängnäs är en stad med rötter långt tillbaka i historien, och som har ett vackert och blandat stadslandskap. Uppgiften i mitt kandidatprojekt har varit att utforma ett förslag på medborgarhus, beläget på en tomtyta bredvid ett bankhus i kanten till Västervikstorget. Närheten till vattnet, rörelsen på de offentliga ytorna och småskalighetens relation till det mer storskaliga, är teman som har varit viktiga i utformandet av förslaget. Ambitionen med mitt förslag är att skapa en plats som både ger Strängnäs nya offentliga rum och funktionella ytor, men som även binder ihop den närmsta miljön och inbjuder till rörelse.

Genom att arbeta med de siktlinjer och offentliga förbindelser som byggnadens tomrum skapar, väcker projektet frågor om hur vår mänskliga nyfikenhet och förväntan kan användas som arkitektoniskt grepp. Förslagets gestaltning tar också upp frågor om hur det intima kan möta det offentliga, hur öppenhet kan förenas med slutenhet.

Abstract [en]

Strängnäs is a city dating a long way back in Swedish history, and which has a beautiful and varying cityscape. The task in my Bachelor project was to design a proposal for a civic hall, located in a central area of Strängnäs next to the plaza "Västervikstorget". Three important factors that have been important in the design process is the closeness to the water, the movement across the public space and the relationship between the intimate and more large-scale local architecture. The ambition of my proposed civic hall is to create a building that while providing new public space and social functions in Strängnäs, also binds together its close surroundings and initiates movement.

By working with the different lines of sight and public pathways that emerge in the space between the bodies of the building, the project raises questions about how human curiosity and the sense of anticipation can be utilised in (public) architecture. The project also gives rise to discussion about how spatial intimacy can be combined with public architecture, the latter traditionally being more exposed. How can the contrasts between an open and a closed design get closer to each other?
