Abstract [en]

Today accessibility is an important and well known factor in the construction of new houses and locations. This development is furthermore shaped by regulations and laws set by government. Nevertheless, accessibility is also a subject that isn’t always as prioritized as other issues which puts it at a disadvantage. With this essay I researched and analyzed how accessibility is created in public buildings. I’ve done this by interviewing seven different people that in one way or another works in the building sector or gets affected by the shaping of places. Three observations have also been performed by me in order to research how various locations are constructed. I’ve found that there is an overall will to make all places accessible for all people. However accessibility is foremost constructed after the normate and after the beliefs of it’s functions. Accessibility for other types of bodies and minds become deviant and seen as an extra cost. This results in a distorted view of what accessibility can mean and limits the possibilitys of accessibility.
