Abstract [en]

Three parties in Sweden had initiation of market rents in their political programs for the last election. The city we live in has 13 years of queue time for a three-room apartment. Last year 1600 public apartments in Umeå were sold to a private company in an undemocratic process. Our society is heading towards privatization and profit on the expense of those who always must pay. Based on an interest in housing politics, I decided to do a project of available rental apartments in a time of privatization. I researched modularity in housing, both to see how it can lower the production costs and how it can be possible to personalize the housing units depending on the inhabitants. I also researched how one can relate new projects to the existing fabric and ways to create well-functioning public spaces – a sense of living together without having to compromise people’s need for privacy. The result of this project is a building of flexible apartments that can vary in size to follow the life situation of its inhabitants.
