Abstract [en]

Introduction I spent two months in Bagamoyo in 2003 together with the Department of Architecture and Development Studies, LTH/LU when I participated in a project about streetscape of Bagamoyo. I became interested to continue working with spatial planning in Bagamoyo for my diploma work, as the town has as well an interesting history as a future. The small Swahili coastal town Bagamoyo, has a rich cultural heritage as once one of the most important trading harbours in East Africa. The importance of Bagamoyo stagnated as a new harbour was built in Dar es Salaam in the late 19th century. Today Bagamoyo grows rapidly because of its good connections to Tanzania's most important city Dar es Salaam. Bagamoyo has got a nicer climate, more vegetation and a calmer atmosphere compared to the larger city. Bagamoyo attracts both visitors from Dar es Salaam during the weekends and far away visitors from Europe and other parts of the world. The visitors spend most of their time at the beach, which also is an important working area for the fishing industry. Many people visit Bagamoyo for the historical buildings in the town. Stone town, from the late 19th century, is a potential Cultural Heritage of the World and the visitors of Bagamoyo are expected to increase more in the future if Bagamoyo is accepted. The beach in Bagamoyo is a great resource not fully used. The sea breeze does however not reach interior parts of the town partly because of vegetation between the beach and the centre. In many places in the inland of Bagamoyo the view over the sea is blocked, only the closest parallel streets to the beach provide a view over the sea. Also the connections between other parts of Bagamoyo are today poor. For a visitor it is difficult to find one's way to different places in town because of this and also because Bagamoyo has no clear structure and few landmarks. aim of the project This project is carried out at two different levels. An overall plan concerns how to orientate in the town and the connection between different areas in Bagamoyo and the coast. For a number of places detailed plans are presented. These detailed plans concern the connection between the centre of the town and the coast and the connections to the old Stone town. The main aim of the project is to enhance the orientation and connections between different areas in Bagamoyo. In order to do this I have come to the conclusion that it is important to find areas or aspects which can work as connectors. Another aim of the project is to create a public meeting place. A place to gather what Bagamoyo is known for- history, culture and art- and at the same time open one of the historical buildings for the public. Another meeting place wich Bagamoyo is in need of, according to me, is a large outdoor space with nice climate and shadow. Also a place to grow plants later used in the streetscape of the town, is suggested in this project.
