Million Program Kitchens: Reconstructing the Welfare State
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Architecture, Architectural Design.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-8428-9432
2018 (English)In: Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects / [ed] Sten Gromark, Jennifer Mack, and Roemer van Toorn, Barcelona: ACTAR, 2018, 1, p. 240-247Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The postwar Swedish kitchen was especially well studied and designed with highambitions not only to contribute to but also to drive the push for increasing the generalstandard of living in Sweden (Berg 1962; Thiberg 1968; Reppen and Vidén 2006).However, societal and demographic changes have left these kitchens outdated. Originallydesigned for a rising middle-class nuclear family, they are today inhabited and used byvariations of the global, multicultural, networked, family (Nylander and Braide Eriksson2011). The aim of Million Program Kitchens, a seminar course taught at the KTHSchool of Architecture during the spring term of 2015, was to revisit postwar kitchens bystudying the strong research that lies behind them and analyzing how they are being usedtoday. Another goal of the course was to prepare future architects for the challenges ofreconstructing the welfare state from the inside out.

Book abstract:

The socially oriented perspective of Volume #1, Rethinking the Social, is complemented by discussions of architectural and transdisciplinary theories and methodologies in Volume #2, After Effects. Together these twin volumes reflect on topics such as the utopian idea of a welfare state, the role of intersubjective and non-human points of view, and the impact of historical and current images on the making of realities. The task of these books is to present a wide range of research topics that combine historical, material, and critical research approaches that respond to our current crises and challenges. Ultimately, this enables new modes of knowledge production within architecture to be advanced in its relation to societal transformation.
