Abstract [en]

Nacka should become an apprehensible city. This thesis aims to create a basic, strategic framework and approach described as a set of strategies and principles which will be used to make a design proposal. The strategies and principles will be used to identify and understand the barriers (e.g. highways, hills etc) and possibilities (e.g. existing urban areas, public spaces, green paths etc) of and for Nacka City’s spatial development and to reach a criterion for densification and “city making“ (concepts from Nacka’s “FÖP”). The main concern is to identify and investigate the barriers, functions, values and assets of Nacka (and its connections to Stockholm) as well as the general goals set up by the municipality. By understanding the existing conditions, and to be aware of the future evolvement and development of Nacka, I will try to identify and locate appropriate locations for urban growth and densification. This location/s, depending on the strategies and principles revealed by the framework, will then be presented as a design proposal.
