Abstract [en]

My diploma thesis has focused on creating a proposal for a Viking center in Stockholm that meets the international interest. A building dedicated solely to the Viking heritage. My ambition has been to give the Viking center an architecture that can serve as scenography for its exhibitions and to give the visitors a feel for the Vikings that they have been craving.  A boat-shaped building in tribute to the Vikings boat building skills with curved stems of equal height that gives a familiar silhouette to the city.  A wood building constructed of curved beams and wood columns painted with tar.

Abstract [sv]

Mitt examensarbete har fokuserat på att skapa ett förslag på ett vikingacenter i Stockholm som kan möta det ökande internationella intresset. Det ska bli en byggnad helt dedikerad till vårat vikingaarv. Min ambition har varit att ge vikingacentret en arkitektur som kan fungera som scenografi för dess utställningar och ge besökarna den vikingakänsla som de saknat. Resultatet är en båt-formad byggnad, en hyllning till vikingarnas båtbyggarkonst. Byggnadens böjda för och akter av samma höjd ger en välbekant siluett till staden.  Det är en träbyggnad av krökta balkar och träpelare målad med tjära.
