The City Hall of Katrineholm: Rooms as intervention
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Katrineholm is a locality and the seat of Katrineholm Municipality,Södermanland County,Sweden,which used to have a strong industrial sector,with several multinational corporations, but in the 1990s some of these companies reduced their workforce in Katrineholm.Today,many residents work elsewhere,as the train connection between Katrineholm and other major cities is fast and comfortable. The main characteristic Katrineholm is “Provinciality”. It is in a condition that is between one historical identity and another identity. This is a good opportunity for Katrineholm to build a new City Hall, forming a new identity for the city. In the process of designing the City Hall, I hope to use rooms as intervention to create both the indoor and outdoor rooms for the citizen and authorities. With these public rooms, the city hall of Katrineholm can be a collection of different characters of rooms, and provide a gathering space for the citizens.
