Var finns lekplatsen?: Ett examensarbete om orienterbarhet i en parkmiljö

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete har skrivits inom ämnet informationsdesign, som en del av kandidatprogrammet Informationsdesign med inriktning mot Rumslig gestaltning. Platsen som har studerats är Folkets park i Malmö, som i skrivande stund står inför en större ombyggnation. Detta examensarbete har både tagit utgångspunkt i parkens nuvarande, samt föreslagna utformning, vilket gjort att jag under processen behövt växla mellan dessa två olika perspektiv. Syftet med examensarbetet har varit att ta fram ett koncept som kan förbättra målgruppens möjligheter att orientera sig i parken efter den föreslagna ombyggnationen.  

Genom teorier, platsanalyser och intervjuer har människors beteendemönster vid informationssökning i rumsliga sammanhang undersökts, med särskild fokus på hur detta kan fungera i Folkets park. Dessa studier ligger till grund för det designförslag som presenteras i examensarbetet. Designförslaget är ett koncept som avser att ge en tydlig bild av vad parken innehåller, tydliggöra riktningar vid förflyttning mellan olika platser, samt indikera funktion. Konceptet bygger på principer för wayshowing och består mer specifikt av vägledande formelement, som utformats och placerats där de kan förtydliga vägen till parkens lekplatser för målgruppen.

Abstract [en]

This thesis has been conducted within the field of information design, as a part of the bachelor program Information Design with specialization in Spatial Design. The location that has been studied is the park “Folkets Park” in Malmö, Sweden, which at the moment currently is facing a major rebuilding. This thesis is hence based on both the parks current and proposed design, which has made it necessary to shift between these two different perspectives. The purpose of this thesis has been to develop a design concept that can improve the target audiences’ ability to orientate within the park following the proposed rebuilding.

Through the use of theories, site analysis and interviews, has human behavior in search for information within spatial contexts been studied, with a particular emphasis on it’s implications for “Folkets Park”. These studies form the basis for the proposed design presented in the thesis. The proposed design intends to provide a well-defined idea and overview of what the park contains, to clarify directions when moving between different locations within the park, as well as to indicate it’s various functions. The design concept is founded on the principles of wayshowing and consists more specifically of directing form elements, which has been designed and located where they can clarify the way to the park’s playgrounds for the target audience.
