    Velayat park: En plats för gränsöverskridande möten mellan människor med olika socioekonomisk status2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Tehran, the capital of Iran has undergone major urbanization in the last century, which has caused uncontrollable urban growth. Poor regulation and control of this growth has given rise to environmental problems including high air and water pollution. In turn, this has led to urban growth towards the mountains in the north, where the environment is better. However, this pressure to develop in the north has increased segregation of the city and created a clear social division of class between the northern and southern parts of the City.

    In light of this, and in the context of Tehran as an extremely dense city with limited green space, the City sees a possibility in transforming an unused military airport in the southern districts of the city into a new urban park.

    This master thesis explores how to reclaim the 270Ha former airfield and develop it as an urban park with strengthened links to surrounding neighbourhoods.

    The work aims to gain an understanding of how large vacant areas can become successful public areas and green places in the community. The work is based on urban theory and site analysis and brings forward design proposals for the park.

    Analysis work is divided into an investigative and exploratory stage. The investigative part includes literature studies, data collection and mapping of the city’s urban morphological development, taking into account physical and socio-economic processes. The exploratory part consisted of inventories, site studies and interviews in Tehran, as well as integration analysis with space syntax to explore accessibility and connections in the new park.

    Throughout the study shows how and why the city has evolved and highlights a connection between living in the southern districts, which are low-income areas, with also having poor access to public and recreation areas.

    This analysis forms the foundations for the design proposal, visualizations and programs presented about how the area can be designed as a new urban city park.

    In conclusion, the study highlights that in order to be able to develop new places or renew existing area’s, consideration must be given to urban morphological development. This includes the socio-economic and socio-ecological process. It further concludes, that a ecological viewpoint together with a understanding of the physical environment, the urban landscape identity and the need of people in the context needs to be brought together to plan and create parks and urban spaces

    Abstract [en]

    In my BA project, I travelled to Tanzania with a MFS stipend and experienced humanitarian architecture up close - by following architectural group Asant Collective´s project in Tanzania: a new Children Centre for a small non-governmental organization called ECONEF. 

    I have worked with social questions / responsibilities regarding our role as interior architects in developing countries - often feeling like a anthropologist.

    In my design part, I have re-drawed the layout for ECONEF´s planned new orphanage after a analyse of the existing orphanage, culture and traditions.

    Visibility Analysis, Similarity and Dissimilarity in General Trends of Building Layouts and their Functions2013In: Proceedings of Ninth International Space Syntax Symposium / [ed] Young Ook Kim, Hoon Tae Park, Kyung Wook Seo, Seoul: Sejong University Press , 2013, p. 11:1-11:15Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Visibility analysis is one of the key methods in space syntax theory that discusses visual information conveyed to observers from any location in space that is potentially directly visible for the observer without any obstruction. Visibility – simply defined as what we can see – not only affects the spatial function of buildings, but also has visual relation to the perception of buildings by inhabitants and visitors. In this paper we intend to present the result of visibility analysis applied on a sample of building layouts of different sizes and functions from a variety of places of periods. The main aim of this paper is to statistically explore the general trends of building layouts and show if and how visibility properties such as connectivity, clustering coefficient, mean depth, entropy, and integration values can make distinctions among different functions of buildings. Our findings reveal that there are significant correlation coefficients among global properties of visibility in which we consider the mean value of properties, a similarity suggesting that they are not intensively manipulated by architecture. On the other hand, there are correlations although less so than the previous, still significant among local properties of visibility in which we consider the (max-min) value of properties, suggesting that social, cultural or other physical parameters distinguish buildings individually. We also show that functions such as ‘museum’ and ‘veterinary’ are relatively well-clustered, while functions such as ‘ancient’ and ‘shopping’ show high diversity. In addition, using a decision tree model we show that, in our sample, functions such as ‘museum’ and ‘library’ are more predictable rather than functions such as ‘hospital’ and ‘shopping.’ All of these mean that – at least in our sample – the usability and applicability of well-clustered and well-predicted functions have been predominant in shaping their interior spaces; vice versa, in well-diverse and unpredicted functions, the pragmatic solutions of people’s daily life developed in material culture affect the visual properties of their interior spaces.

    Flood hazard and its impact on the resilience of cities: An accessibility-based approach to amenities in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden2017In: Proceedings - 11th International Space Syntax Symposium, SSS 2017, Instituto Superior Tecnico, Departamento de Engenharia Civil, Arquitetura e Georrecursos , 2017, p. 36.1-36.15Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the wake of climate change and its impact on increasing the number and intensity of floods, adaptability of cities to and resistance against the flood hazard is critical to retain functionality of the cities. Vulnerability of urban infrastructure and its resilience to flooding from different points of view have been important and worth investigating for experts in different fields of science. Flood hazards as physical phenomena are influenced by form of the cities and thus the magnitude of their impacts can be intensified by urban infrastructures such as street networks and buildings (Bacchin et. al, 2011). In this paper, we aim to develop a method to assess the resilience of a river city (the city of Gothenburg in Sweden), which is prone to flood events, against such disturbances and find out how the city reacts to river floods and to what extent the city retains its accessibility to essential amenities after a flood occurs. To do so, collecting required data; we, firstly, simulate flood inundation with two different return periods (50 and 1000 years) and then the impact areas overlay on the street networks. Evaluating the resilience of the city, syntactic properties of the street networks before and after flooding are measured at different scales. Additionally, accessibility and the minimum distance of the street networks to essential amenities such as healthcare centers, schools and commercial centers, at a medium distance (3 Km) is examined. The results show that flooding influences the city configuration at global scale more than the local scale based on comparison of syntactic properties before and after flooding. However, the results of accessibility and the minimum distance show that the impact of flooding on the functionality of the city is more limited to the riparian areas and the city is not affected globally.

    Connecting with the Elements: - Geothermal Bath House, Nesjavellir, Iceland2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A geothermal bathing facility utilising exhaust thermal energy from a nearby geothermal power plant. During the process of producing thermal and electrical energy enormous amounts of thermal energy is exhausted into the air, energy that if used must be used on location.

    In designing the bath close contact and experience with local materials was a focus point, intimate connection with the surrounding elements are to be experienced at intervals from within the building.

    Reflecting both icelandic bathing culture as well as seeking inspiration from icelandic nature is a center point, bringing the materials tactility to the visitors fingertips.

    Focus has been the following:

    NATURE - Building in exposed landscape carries a responsibility, explore the boundaries between architecture and untouched nature.  Fusing and simulating external experiences inside the program through sequences of different experiences and testing different senses.

    MATERIAL STUDY - Iceland is a poor provider of traditional building materials, examining the available volcanic substances, aesthetic as well as practical usages. Studying their advantages as well as disadvantages.

    ENERGY - To bring to use otherwise exhausted (wasted) thermal energy, study the energy cycle, amount of available energy and utilize it to activate the building itself as well as to heat the various pools.

    Adaptive Envelope: Contemporary center of visual arts in Frihamnen2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main idea of my thesis work is to deal with the problem of an adaptive reuse of an existing building, which has been designed many years ago and now lost its function. And the way I am approaching this - is through the idea of infection.  What if an existing building becomes infected by new purposes and qualities, and if so then how this move could be performed and realized?

    Unlike the majority of the adaptive reuse projects, mine has at its core the idea of introducing new feathers and elements in the way that it’s natural and a bit illusive, without contrasting the newly added to already existed. My goal is not to reveal this materiality difference. What I’m presenting today is a completely new envelope but from the inside you still can see this repetition of circular forms and understand that these are the same silos, which at some point were deformed in order to perform a different functions.

    Urban Buildning, Kungsholmen2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My project is a “Urban building” on Kungsholmen in Stockholm. Västra Kungsholmen is an expanding area with a lot of new apartment blocks, and the stereotype habitant in the area is the young family with small kids. My intention is then to do a building for the young people in Stockholm, who need their first home. Since it is quite rare with those kind of buildings in Stockholm and on Kungsholmen.

    The building consists of five volumes surrounding a core. In the five volumes there are apartments and the core is the common spaces, that will be shared among the people living in the house. The building has a passage thorough the building for both the ones living in the house and people who wants to take a shortcut through the house to get to the park.

    More Than Meets the Eye. "Castles and Manor Houses in Sweden" Revisited2016In: Konsthistorisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-3609, E-ISSN 1651-2294, Vol. 85, no 1, p. 97-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The landmark book series Slott och herresaten i Sverige (transl. Castles and Manor Houses in Sweden), published in 1966-1971 by Allhems forlag, is still today considered the most important art historical reference work on Swedish manor buildings and country houses. The 18 volumes seem to present a near complete picture of the nation's rich heritage of manor buildings, combining the comprehensive and topographically organized guide book with the thoroughness of the architectural monograph. This paper will address the more problematic aspects of the book series, its critical role in the writing of a Swedish architectural history and in shaping a national country house narrative. While each volume provides an authoritative and concise overview of the history, ownership and stylistic development of the most significant manor buildings in the province - their architecture, interiors, gardens and collections - the presentation with its general descriptions, formal analysis and neutral tone omits a more in-depth analysis of these complex environments as well as underlying social, political and economic aspects. The descriptions have, in a sense, been working against the depth of historical understanding and the identification of more complex networks. As a consequence, the Swedish manor house is presented as a continuous and self-contained "treasure house", with the critical perspectives and broader European context very seldom present in the characterizations.

    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste decennierna har det blivit allt tydligare att utbudet på bostadsmarknaden inte matchar efterfrågan. Främst den rådande bristen på bostäder, men också för de bostäder som alla slåss om i huvudsak är byggda utifrån hur Sverige såg ut för 40–50 år sedan. Dagens familjer och deras behov ser inte lika dana ut som när bostäderna byggdes. Bostadsmarknaden måste följa samhällets utveckling och vara villiga att satsa på nytänkande. I mitt examensarbete vill jag visa på hur ett sådant boende skulle kunna se ut.

    FAD * for Stadsgårdskajen

    Re-introduction of some of the knowledge from the master builder to the contemporary architect.

    This project investigates the interaction between designing architecture and building architecture in a computer controlled context. Algorithms have been developed to simulate and control an automated in situ brick stacking process. Brick laying is a well researched topic for robotic processes. It is an ideal material for building with robots (in Stockholm) since it is a generic building block that is cheap and easy to produce locally. Corbeled vaults, instead of keystone vaults, can be built without support and with all identical elements and are therefore also suitable for robotic fabrication. 

    The algorithms have been incorporated in a parametric model that have been used to develop public building at Stadsgårdskajen, Stockholm. FAD is about creating and explore a different architectural expression as well as reintroducing the brick as a relevant construction material for Stockholm.

    Generative Design Exploration: Computation and Material Practice2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, computation serves as an important intermediary agent for the integration of analyses and the constraints of materialisation into design processes. Research efforts in the field have emphasised digital continuity and conformity between different aspects of a building project. Such an approach can limit the potential for significant discoveries, because the expression of architectural form is reduced to the varying tones of one fabrication technique and simulation at a time. This dissertation argues that disparate sets of digital and physical models are needed to incorporate multiple constraints into the exploration, and that the way the designer links them to one another significantly impacts the potential for arriving at significant discoveries. Discoveries are made in the moment of bridging between models, representational mediums, and affiliated processes.

    This dissertation examines the capacity of algorithm—as a basis for computation—to diversify and expand the design exploration by enabling the designer to link disparate models and different representational mediums. It is developed around a series of design experiments that question how computation and digital fabrication can be used to diversify design ideation, foster significant discoveries, and at the same time increase flexibility for the designer’s operation in the design process. The experiments reveal the interdependence of the mediums of design—algorithm, geometry, and material—and the designer’s mode of operation. They show that each medium provides the designer with a particular way of incorporating constraints into the exploration. From the way the designer treats these mediums and the design process, two types of exploration are identified: goal oriented and open-ended. In the former, the exploration model is shaped by the designer’s objective to reach a specified goal through the selection of mediums, models, and tools. In the latter, the design process itself informs the designer’s intention. From the kinds of interdependencies that are created between mediums in each experiment, three main exploration models emerge: circular and uniform, branched and incremental, and parallel and bidirectional.

    Finally, this dissertation argues that the theoretical case for integral computational design and fabrication must be revised to go beyond merely applying established computational processes to encompass the designer and several design mediums. The new model of design exploration is a cooperation between algorithm, geometry, materials, tools, and the designer. For the exploration to be novel, the designer must play a significant role by choosing one medium over another when formulating the design problem and establishing design drivers from the set of constraints, by linking the design mediums, by translating between design representations, and by describing the key aspects of the exploration in terms of algorithms.

    Projecting Realities: Re-mediation in the Realm of Architecture2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The boundaries between physical and virtual are dissolving as worlds are superimposed through media saturation. The design proposal of a movie theater at S:t Eriksgatan in Stockholm acts as vehicle for exploring the opportunities of architecture in an unstable reality. Remediation. A concept within media studies, describes the way any new media incorporates the traits of already existing ones. Conversely, “(…)older media refashion themselves to answer the challenges of new media”(1).

    By regarding architecture as a world-conjuring operation, parallel investigations into other media provide new tools of design. The method consists of simultaneously developing five works in five media: text, image, diorama, video and architecture. The text serves as abinding narrative. The image is based on an analysis of Giovanni Battista Piranesis prison etchings wich exhibit a range of devices particular to the world of image. The diorama or mirror box is an attempt to create a boundless but contained world. The video world has centered around the use of a reverse zoom effect. The movie theater uses the techniques of media in order to enhance it´s immersive qualities.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the work is to design an extension to The National Museum in Stockholm. The current facilities are going to be reorganized in a near future. Conservation of artworks, research and administration, today housed in the museum building, will be moved to an extension. The current addition, built in the 1960s will be torn down. The extension designed in this work is placed behind (north of) The National Museum. A smaller body of four stories act as prime motif and include entrances, offices, research rooms, library and main vertical communication of the extension. This volume lies parallel to the original building. In a small angle to the first body a lower but very elongated volume lies, it is a continuation of the apparent urban grid. It includes the conservation studios and forms a solid granite wall toward the National Museum and the sculpture park created between them. The park becomes a new, identifiable space in the city, in a way targeting the modern museum of art across the water.

    Fruängen Centrum: En kontextuell strategi för det offentliga rummet2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject matter of this thesis project is post-war suburban centres, and particularly the case of Fruängen. The main question has been how to intervene spatially in this type of context, without completely contradicting the spatial logic of the existing system. The intention has been to introduce specific and monumental architecture to a generic environment, and to strengthen the definition of its public spaces. 

    The proposal consists of two buildings, an indoor bus terminal located on the existing bus station, and a library placed on the large parking lot behind the centre. New parking spaces in the bus terminal makes the placement of the library possible. 

    This project suggests that by dealing more efficiently with the traffic situation in a typical post-war centre, space can be created for new buildings on publicly owned land. This allows for the return of civic institutions to increasingly commercial centres and improved public spaces.

    School in Mariehäll: Elementary school in the new residential area Annedal2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    An elementary school in the Stockholm suburb Mariehäll, for children aged 6-11 as well as a daycare centre. The school will cater to approximately 700 students and a centre for art and culture, which will be available to the public. The school is located in the new residential area Annedal, adjacent to the local park and Bullerbytorget.

    This project explores the correlation between architecture and learning, with the purpose of creating an environment that meets the needs of students with difficulties in concentrating. This has influenced the orientation of the building and the classrooms, the organisation of the plan and the materials and colours used in the various rooms.

    The program is divided into two volumes – one which houses the actual school and daycare centre, and one which consists of administration and the centre for art and culture. These are connected by a souterrain storey which contains the school cafeteria, and entrances from the street and the square. The school grounds are located four meters above street level, which allows the roof of the lower volume to function as a part of the playground.

    De stora restaureringarna: Från Uppsala domkyrka till Skokloster2004Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    De stora restaureringarna har varit årets tema. Genom att dokumentera och analysera teori och praktik i några av 1800- och 1900-talets största restaureringar - från genomgripande stilrestaureringar till ett mer återhållsamt och tekniskt skon­samt synsätt. Därmed får vi också ett bättre underlag även för dagens ställningsta­gande.Föremål för våra studier är Uppsala domkyrka, Gripsholms slott, Vreta kloster­kyrka, Gustav 11I:s paviljong i Haga, Kungapalatset i Vadstena och Skoklosters slott. Vi hoppas att denna utställning skall bidra till en kritisk hållning och en ökad kunskap om restaureringskonsten, som kvalificerad yrkesuppgift, tidsspegel för historiesyn och som gestaltningsideal.

    Adding Layers: Adaptive Reuse in Tensta Centrum2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The project examines how a new structure could be added on top a 60’s school building without interfering with its structurally order and aesthetical manifestation. A new space for the citizens of Tensta, a hovering glass box that puts Tensta Centrum on the map. Together with new office spaces for the City District Administration it would work as a catalytic effect for the area. New spatial qualities emerges and the composition, the old vs the new, together creates Tensta’s new Town Hall.

    Charging the Void: (Perception Odd Logic)2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As a concern for how new city developments invest in commercial

    public space of economic activity rather than cultural activity and

    inclusion, part of a global trend and also the case of Umeå’s ambition

    to reach the population growth of 200 000 inhabitants by the year of

    2050. The question to be asked in this regard is what kind of effect

    does this produce on the way we as local inhabitants can take control

    and be part of the creation of our own living environment? Or are

    we just victims of a life consumed by slow decay due to the capital

    dominance?

    In relation to this main concern, the project has been developing

    through the aspect of acknowledging inferior space and abandoned

    objects as a method and typology to analyze alternative ways to

    perceive the city off based the logic of clear function and use, but in

    terms of human interaction and subjective perception of space. The

    point of departure and important key element for this development

    derived from the early stages of research and influential work by

    Robert Smithson’s Monuments of Passaic New Jersey, (1967) with

    a main quote on the description of Smithson’s work and the term of

    monuments, here defined by Ann Reynolds as: “how something plot

    out and charge a space with meaning”

    Learning from memory traces of an abandoned set of futures evoked

    the idea and strive towards creating space not tied to a specific

    use or function, but as a collaboration and juxtaposition between

    form and the viewer’s experience. In add to an understanding of a

    presence which ties together the past and the present as an indirect

    translation of the developed concept for contemporary Ruins, as the

    perception of void. The ruins association to object defined through

    the observer became a guideline towards the aim of designing nonhierarchical

    space, free of us and interpreted by the visitor within the

    city scape.

    Based on this foundation this thesis aims to examine the possibilities

    of architectural structures which can encourage and create conditions

    for new cultural and social meetings. The abstract concept of space

    and deliberate openness to interpretation can allow the visitor to

    take co-authorship of their own living environment based on their

    personal understanding and imagination of that space. The action

    is by deliberate disjunction between form and viewer’s experience

    forced by a superimposition plan as a design strategy for redeveloping

    the current Döbelns Park into a new culture park in the city context

    of Umeå, Västerbotten, Sweden. Fragments of the park will in add

    create a system of integrated monumental sculpture scapes, as a

    network of in-between small scale interventions adapting to specific

    site conditions together with implemented greenery. To secure areas

    within the city scape with access to greenery and social interactive

    meeting points, part of the Urban strategy.

    Abstract [en]

    New Opera Stockholm

    My thesis is a proposal for a new opera house in Stockholm at Galärparken on the southern island of Djurgården, already one of Sweden's most visited tourist activity areas that I believe a new opera house will thrive on. Like a big boat building has comfortably settled to correct the Strandvägskajen with land bridge lowered. It is an opera in Stockholm and the National Opera in Sweden. With its 70,000 sqm it will give the opera a better room for a live opera, ballet and concert activities than can fit within the existing opera house today.

    The debate on giving Stockholm a new opera house has a long history, the current oscarianska opera has become too small and outdated to keep today's technically demanding operas; both Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki and Gothenburg have dared to invest and built their new opera houses in the last decade, now it's Stockholm's turn!

    Örebro slott: Slott och borgar2000Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    En majoritet av dagens byggnadsuppgifter gäller att hantera det redan byggda. När vi står inför situationen att restaurera en befintlig byggnad är det viktigt att förstå olika tidsperioders stilideal liksom byggnadsteknik och material. Först då kan vi göra en väl avvägd analys som tar tillvara och utvecklar de kvaliteter som byggnaderna själva besitter. Därför är utbildningen upplagd som ett växelspel mellan föreläsningar, seminarier, exkursioner och en för året vald studieavgift.Slott och brogar har varit läsårets tema. Vi har valt att arbeta med Västerås och Örebro slott - två ganska bortglömda Vasaslott som är väl värda att lyfta fram, Särskilt har vi studerat de senaste 300 årens förändringar, som inte tidigare ägnats lika stor forskarmöda som medeltiden och Vasatiden. I dessa två exempel finns en provkarta på estetiska, praktiska och tekniska ingrepp på Carl Hårlemans tid och fram till idag.Studierna har således omfattat både gestaltning, funktion och byggnadsteknik. Avsikten är att visa på kvaliteterna i de omvandlingar och restaureringar som skett, men också att peka på problem och analysera olika möjligheter inför framtiden. Arbetet har skett i samarbete med Statens fastighetsverk och är tänkt att utgöra ett underlag till vårdprogram och framtida restaureringsinsatser,

    Abstract

    What is a transformation, and what could it be? How could a strategy for how to approach a transformation project look?

    I have defined a transformation as the act of taking an existing building and inserting a new program that creates a new reality.

    There can be many reasons to do a transformation instead of building something new. The most important reason that I have chosen to work with is about capturing the qualities or values that exists in a building and bring them into the new reality and build on them instead of creating whole different values. Values in this case are things like surface area, volumes, height, light conditions, material and details. It is things like the cast concrete stairs and the very special windows in some parts of the building. To me this is the core idea and purpose of any transformation.

    Because the values that are kept ties the present to the history, and carries and keeps memories and identities. They create continuity in the story of the building.

    In a transformation a number of mayor conflicts arise because the new program demands values that the existing building lacks. How you chose to solve these conflicts is the most critical and most difficult aspect of any transformation.

    My transformation is done two steps. The first step is about identifying as much values as possible and trying to bring them into the new program while overlooking the whole. The dwelling was there already, all I had to do was isolate the values and bring them in to the new program. I have kept as much of the existing material as possible to keep the values intact and only added walls to define the new apartments. The result is very particular dwellings; a lot of them have their own entrances, they are spreading out both horizontally and vertically and have sunlight from two directions.

    This is a safe and rather easy way of keeping values. When these kept dwellings are defined the more difficult conflicts arises that makes the transformation so interesting. The surface areas that remain after I have laid out these kept dwellings are hard to create good dwellings from.

    I think it’s important that the additions that has to be made in a transformation relates to the building that used to be. Otherwise there´s a great risk that the existing values are destroyed.

    Relation for me is about picking up things like spatial concepts and concepts relating to form, material or structure.

    The courtyards that exist today are rarely in use. Courtyards are actually something amazing. They don’t only retract sunlight but also shadow, rain, snow, sounds, foliage, bugs and birds deep into a building. Therefore I have chosen to develop the courtyards that already exists by adding some more. In and around the school there are also several stairs in cast concrete. To create connections I’ve added new similar stairs.  

    A good transformation creates the conditions needed for a new demand, while keeping the most important values in a building and adds to the identity instead of destroying it.  

    My strategy for transformations in two steps is about first bringing certain special values into a new program without considering the building as a whole. Afterwards an addition is created which relates to the existing while solving the conflicts that always arise when doing a transformation.

    The result in this case is dwellings that are very particular compared to the dwellings which are usually built today. They are not standard flats but dwellings with surface areas, volumes, details and other characteristics that newly built dwellings rarely has.

    Social-Ecological Urbanism: Lessons in Design from the Albano Resilient Campus2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Currently there is a demand for practical ways to integrate ecological insights into practices of design, which previously have lacked a substantive empirical basis. In the process of developing the Albano Resilient Campus, a transdisciplinary group of ecologists, design scholars, and architects pioneered a conceptual innovation, and a new paradigm of urban sustainability and development: Social-Ecological Urbanism.  Social-Ecological Urbanism is based on the frameworks of Ecosystem Services and Resilience thinking. This approach has created novel ideas with interesting repercussions for the international debate on sustainable urban development. From a discourse point of view, the concept of SEU can be seen as a next evolutionary step for sustainable urbanism paradigms, since it develops synergies between ecological and socio-technical systems. This case study collects ‘best practices’ that can lay a foundational platform for learning, innovation, partnership and trust building within the field of urban sustainability. It also bridges gaps in existing design approaches, such as Projective Ecologies and Design Thinking, with respect to a design methodology with its basis firmly rooted in Ecology.

    THE WALKABLE CITY: ALONG THE EDGE OF STOCKHOLM. Developing the edge to reconnect a former industrial site to the city2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Stockholm is an archipelago of islands connected by water that historically has been an important resource for the city and for the industries, which found an easy access for ships and therefore they settled on strategic positions along the edges.

    This thesis investigates the topics of water, industrial heritage and edges in the city of Stockholm: these aspects are strong in their individual identity but they also interact in a powerful and interesting way.

    This work intervenes where this pattern is still visible -due to the presence of water and industries- but not accessible because it lacks the third element of connection with the city.

    The aim is therefore to investigate strategies that increase and reconnect the potential of these aspects that got disconnected through time.

    To obtain accessibility and usability, the edge was transformed and redefined to enhance the experience of walking along it.

    An analysis was carried out and a proposal was designed for the site of Lövholmen, which has these characteristics -the water, a strong industrial heritage and proximity to the city- that are now disconnected.

    The opening of the edge and possibilities of walking will transform and reconnect the site - and the richness in it- with the city of Stockholm.

    Indoor hygrothermal condition and user satisfaction in naturally ventilated historic houses in temperate humid continental climate around the Baltic Sea2016In: Architectural Science Review, ISSN 0003-8628, E-ISSN 1758-9622, Vol. 59, no 1, p. 53-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Indoor climate and user satisfaction were analysed by field measurement and a questionnaire in 67 traditional rural houses in Estonia, Finland and Sweden. Our findings showed that the indoor climate in all the investigated historic rural houses needs improvement. The room temperature was mainly too low during winter. Leaky houses had also a larger vertical temperature difference. The relative humidity in the unheated and periodically heated houses was high during winter and caused risk for mould growth in 17% of all houses and 33% of unheated houses. Significant differences of indoor humidity loads in different houses were revealed depending on the living density and usage profile. During the winter period, the design value of moisture excess was 4-5g/m(3) and the average moisture load was 2-3.5g/m(3). The indoor humidity load in historic houses was similar to that in modern houses. The results of the questionnaire showed that main problems were related to unstable or too low temperatures. At the same time, inhabitants rated the overall indoor climate as healthy and no statistically important relations were found between average indoor temperature and complaints about too cold or too warm indoor temperatures.

    Renovation alternatives to improve energy performance of historic rural houses in the Baltic Sea region2014In: Energy and Buildings, ISSN 0378-7788, E-ISSN 1872-6178, Vol. 77, p. 58-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses renovation alternatives to improve energy performance of historic rural houses in three countries (Estonia, Finland, Sweden) in the Baltic Sea region (cold climate). The study was conducted by a combination of field measurements and simulations. Indoor climate, typical houses and structures as well as the current condition and need for renovation were determined by field measurements. Based on field measurements, indoor climate and energy simulation models were validated and used to calculate energy use for different renovation measures. Energy renovation packages were calculated for different scenarios (minimal influence on the appearance of the house, improvement of thermal comfort, improvement of building service systems) for different energy saving levels. The analysis showed that the improvement of building service systems and the energy source holds the largest energy saving potential. The building envelope of old rural houses needs improvement also due to high thermal transmittance and air leakage. The insulation of the external wall has the largest single energy saving potential of the building's envelope. The results show how energy savings depend on energy saving targets, typology of the building, thermal transmittance of original structures, and building service systems. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    Abstract [en]

    Trafikverket plans to soon upgrade theplatform of Murjek station, a small-scale trainstation that constitute Jokkmokkmunicipality's only railway station alongMalmbanan and has clear links to touristdestinations. In connection with this, amapping of touristic aspects for smaller trainstations related to tourism shall be made andan associated design program for Murjekstation area will be developed.This method in this report consists of doing asystematic literature review, interviews andfield studies, which served as the base for themapping that has been done. The goal of thisreport is to, through the touristic aspects andthe design program, answer the followingscientific questions:How can a design proposal for a small-scaletrain station linked to tourism look like?● What features are important to create anaccessible and functional train station?● What parameters are important for a smallscaletrain station seen from a touristicperspective?How should Murjek station and thesurrounding station area be designed in orderto promote tourism development in asustainable way?● How can touristic experience values be metthrough the design of the station area?● What touristic aspects should be met in thedesign of Murjek station?Through following the method ofåtgärdsvalsstudier, the station area has beeninventoried and a summarized view of theshortcomings in the area has been compiled.Furthermore, measures of action based on theinterviews and theory have been developedand evaluated which has culminated in thetouristic aspects. These, along with the theoryfor the design of train stations, were the basisfor the design program.The compiled touristic aspects cover the areasof design, information, culture, art,functionality, and social aspects and aredesigned to be applicable to all small-scalestations linked to tourism. The design programis divided into three parts: the station area,the station building and the platform. All threeareas have been renovated and adapted to bemore accessible and functional based onexisting guidelines and to meet the touristicaspects developed.The design program embodies the practicalapplication of the touristic aspects and theexisting guidelines for functionality,accessibility, and design. This result is meantas a source of inspiration for other small-scalestations and demonstrates the possibility tocombine all of these elements into anattractive travel center that is well suited forall types of travelers, including persons withdisabilities and tourists.The report is geographically limited to Murjekand its vicinity and is limited to theparameters tourism, accessibility, andfunctional adaptation.

    Community and exchange of experience is the key concept for cohousing in Stadshagen at Kungsholmen, Stockholm. The house situated on top of the subway is connected to the street life by a material shop and a small timberyard. Below this level connected to the subway is a wood workshop housing, allowed fore anyone to work in. The collective house has a history of being a private zone for the inhabitants but the wood workshop and material shop opens up the space to the public. The house invites to change, and residents are invited to add and remove in the apartments they rent. When the residents move into the apartment it´s almost empty, there is for example no closets or kitchen cabinet. The type of cabinets and shelves you want, it is possible to build in the wood workshop. You'll find several residents who like to grow and build, primarily in wood. Some of the senior citizens have worked with crafts all their life and have a passion to share their knowledge that would otherwise be lost.

     

    By letting private surfaces decreases and instead be shared, the living should be more practical economically, environmentally and less lonely.

    The roof is the branches of the tree crown that reaches to the light, covered in foliage in the spring or snow in the winter. The soil, the roots and the leaves makes the floor. In between, a new layer of architecture takes form by strengthening the existing rooms and enabling an activity where the children spend six months a year outdoors. The pedagogy makes the child feel safe in the woods and in the nearby area, thereby protecting them and making them feel involved to gain strength to preserve or to change. Grow up and become a democratic citizen.

    Gallery Uppsala

    City of Uppsala is Sweden's fourth largest city and like many other cities its in development. The city is densified and it becomes apparent when centrally located brownfield sites are exploited and reorganized to meet contemporary needs of modern city. The city is a church center which is manifested by the cathedral, which together with the castle gives Uppsala it´s characteristic skyline, which has a clear hierarchy in the cityscape. Through Uppsala a river flows, Fyrosån.The castle and the cathedral is built on a ridge and Fyrisån follows it through out the city. The river and its surroundings gives the city its character with the sounds, the smell and water mirror that sneaks into the quarters and form a natural calm. At the river with a view over the ridge, castle, cathedral, university city, gentrifierade industrial areas and green areas is Uppsala Art Museum located. The building brings together the site's architectural idiom and it is a building which blends together areas of the city. A tectonic monumentality achieved with prefabricated elements.

    I solitärens skugga: Nyttobyggnadens kreativa restaurering2015Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Ekonomibyggnader har alltid behövts för de huvudbyggnader som finns inom våra bevarade kulturmiljöer. Några nyttobyggnader uppskattas och används fortfarande, andra betraktas som problematiska överloppsbyggnader, många rivs. Alltför få har dokumenterats eller fått sin historia klarlagd vilket undanhållit viktig kunskap om samhällets framväxt. Vi vill synliggöra och betona vikten av att bevara och utveckla hela bebyggelsemiljöer, ofta med ett antal hus utöver huvudbyggnaden och tillhörande yttre miljö i staden eller på landet. Denna rapport visar kursdeltagarnas projektarbeten om nyttobyggnader. De har dokumenterat med traditionella och nya arbetsmetoder, inventerat och intervjuat, läst och besökt arkiv, värderat, analyserat och därefter föreslagit hur man ska ta hand om och utveckla nyttobyggnaderna i sina kulturmiljöer.

    Myrö Gård Spa2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a time where the cities get more crowded, this project had an aim to introduce a space free from everyday stress. The goal was to create a public space for recreation, health and experience, and the result was a spa. The spa is located in Örebro, a medium-sized city where this concept is lacking. The site is Myrö gård, a characteristic plot with high natural values and historical surroundings. Specific for Myrö is its castle, woods, recreation areas, wetlands, landscape of common reeds and the lake Hjälmaren. All these parts are taken in the spa experience, which consists of a fragmented journey with different sequences of movement throughout the site. The spa is built in wood and is a type of a thermal bath, which is placed on the wetlands near the lake. The program consists of fragmented volumes connected by duckboards and bridges. As an addition to the spa, there is an orangery where food and drinks are served. In between the volumes, the important characteristics of the site are picked up, for example, the reed, the stone blocks or the trees. Each movement between the different rooms is planned to not miss the details of nature.
