Abstract [en]

Manifest

Today we live in a society were we live longer, with access to food,medicine, pure water with all services we could possibly need around the corner. Still we struggle with growing issues that our way of living and planning have affected us. Together we face issues of rising housing prices with a steady progressing marginalized rental market. Causing segregated gentrified areas of high income in comparison to low income. At the same time we contaminate the environment around us without reflecting of how we can alter our way of building and living instead. Previously we had access to pure air, water with tighter relations with our community, living with the nature without being a bystander that have distanced herself from it.

What have we lost along the way? I will through my project propose an alternative to how we plan our city today, by working from following points.

-Living in a natural landscape without implementing a generic city plan that do not consider the qualities of the site. I instead intend to take advantage of the natural qualities while combining them with our modern way of living.

--Living with nature without impeding long lasting harm to nature, this include treatment of wastewater from the housing.

-Creating a social diverse community by combining housing to prevent the development of a gentrified area of high income elite. As a part of this is to design affordable housing that low income groups can afford to rent or buy.

-Vivid community life by offering both public and private spaces, with community activities.
