Abstract [en]

Eskilstuna Folkhögskola is located in Munktellstaden in Eskilstuna. The school has two separate buildings with entrances that are difficult to find. By having two separate buildings, and to be in an area where there are rules and guidelines for the area's environment, makes it difficult to guide visitors to the school premises.

The purpose of my research was to examine how to guide visitors to the school, and how to increase understanding that the school's various buildings are connected.

Through practices such as site analysis, interviews, I found that the guidelines are not adapted to the current situation that is established in the district.

Through theory and empirical material I have produced a design proposal to facilitate Wayfinding to Eskilstuna Folkhögskola. This is presented as a landmark and a clarification of the schools entrances and signage.
