Suburban modernist examples built in Sweden between 1930-80 had a strong sociopolitical program, following a strict Corbusian urban design doctrine. 8 suburban districts in Stockholm and Malmö were selected for territorial analysis, investigating spatial configurations as well as the utility of open spaces. Spatial analysis was conducted by a territorial model identifying different social and legal spaces and spatial objects, such as fences, hedges, gates etc. Utility analysis was conducted by sending out 100 questionnaires to residents in the district inquiring into perceptions and use of open spaces and courtyards in their blocks of residence. On-site observation of use and traces of use (such as furniture, toys, evidence of tended lawns, flower beds) was also analysed. Finally, spatial analysis and utility analysis were correlated by map overlay techniques and by statistical regression.
