Abstract [sv]

Det här examensarbetet undersöker arkitektur som ett medel att förhöja en naturupplevelse. Det utforskar hur en byggnad kan fungera som ett pedagogiskt verktyg som genom kunskap inspirerar och underlättar för besökaren att upptäcka mer av miljön. Studier av rumsliga samband, materialitet och visuella kopplingar har resulterat i en vertikal rörelse genom det 28 meter höga besökscentrum som överblickar den omgivande naturen och dess olika naturtyper.Kopplade till utställningarna i naturumet finns paviljonger utplacerade i respektive naturtyp, vilka fungerar som utposter med information och specifika aktiviteter. De sex utposterna syns från respektive naturtyps utställningsplan i naturumstornet och fungerar som stationer i en rundvandring genom området, där besökare lockas att undersöka naturen på egen hand.Området är en av Naturvårdsverket föreslagen nationalpark, vars mosaik av naturtyper samverkar till en unik miljö. Naturumet är placerat mitt i skogen, i ett av de två provbrott som gjorts här i planerandet av ett större kalkbrott på platsen. Kontrasten mellan uppbruten mark och gammal urskog ger intressanta förutsättningar för arkitekturen, som hjälper till att berätta om den pågående konflikten mellan industrins exploateringsintressen och naturvårdens bevarandeintressen.

Abstract [en]

This master thesis explores architecture as a means to enhance the experience of nature. It investigates how a building can serve as an educational tool that through knowledge and facilities inspire visitors to discover more of the environment. The study of spatial relations, materiality and visual connections results in a vertical movement through a 28 meter high visitor centre, that overviews the surrounding nature and its different habitat types.In addition to the exhibitions in the visitor centre, pavilions are placed in each habitat, functioning as outpost with information and specific activities connected to them. The six outposts are visible from the lookouts in the central tower and linked together as milestones on a hike through the area, where visitors are urged to explore nature on their own.The area on northern Gotland is one of the EPA:s proposed National parks, in which a mosaic of habitats interact and create a unique environment. The Visitor center is placed in the forest, in one of the two tests quarries dug here in planning of a large limestone quarry. The contrast between the ruptured ground and the old wild-wood give interesting conditions for the architecture and helps telling the story about the pending conflict between industrial exploitation and nature preservation.
