    Spaces of Trade in Tallinn: Uncertainty and Everyday Life2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The everyday survival of the other at

    the border between ‘East’ and ‘West’

    is the object of this study. The country

    in-between, Estonia, is a ‘melting

    pot’ of Russian, Western and Nordic

    influence, what makes this zone an

    active, diverse, nevertheless invisible

    in the global awareness.

    The process of transition and rapid

    neoliberalization, which is characteristic

    for the post-socialist country

    such as Estonia, brings together

    number of side-effects, lots of

    redundant people, who could not

    adapt to the new regime, who speculate

    and trade.

    The investigation of ‘Russian’

    semi-official spaces of trade in Estonian

    capital, Tallinn, reveals the

    values and defects of the open-air markets. 

    The thesis highlights

    the need to politicize the processes

    around the disappearing and/or

    transforming the open-air markets

    in the city. In spite of the fact, that

    the informal trading is often connected

    with poverty, illegality, low

    hygiene, distrust and crime, this

    work explores the alternative ways

    of trading, the power of immediacy

    and aesthetics in confrontation to

    the global capital.

    The architecture as the transversal

    practice cuts across the patterns

    of trading based on irresponsible

    consumerism and desire, and experiments

    with the original concept

    of the market with the dialogue in

    front. The speculative interventions

    are the sites of the common life,

    production and renewal.

    Recycle Dharavi: A sanitary upgrade2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Two things struck me during my time in Dharavi. The first was the bad public health and the second the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit of the people who lived there. The health issues, a result of inadequate sanitation, can be directly linked to the shortage of toilets. For every toilet there are a thousand users and because of this over a quarter of the people in Dharavi choose instead to publicly defecate. On the other side of the coin however, stands Dharavi’s remarkable recycling industry and in Dharavi alone 80% of Mumbai’s plastic waste is recycled and given new use.

    The concept revolves around recyclability and combining industry with sanitation; recycling the produced waste and generating income. If there’s a way to profit from human waste it is likely that people would go to certain lengths to collect the necessary material. By removing the waste and converting it to humanure, positive side effect would include cleaner streets and in general a healthier population.

    The idea is therefore to build a waste management facility where income is generated through the collected waste and used to improve the surrounding community. In this proposed space you can go to the toilet, throw away your trash and food waste and even use the functions provided to do chores or simply relax. The food and human waste from toilets could be used as fertilizer and sold for a profit or perhaps even used as fuel. The garbage could be collected and sorted on spot and then sold onwards for further refinement.

    Housing Designed by Developers: The Weak Role of the Architect and the Forgotten Users2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish housing sector has changed from being part of the welfare state into being market-driven. During the last century political decisions has enabled this change together with changes regarding the actors involved in the building industry. The role of the architect has weakened and users are not involved in the process of designing housing at all. I propose an alternative estate agency called Bricolage where the users are involved in the design process of their homes from start to finish. Bricolage would not find you the home of your dreams but instead build it together with you. The process started with interviews with the users where functions, materials, style, common spaces, light and atmosphere were discussed. The interview resulted in a written document and a storyboard that worked as a stepping stone to build the first model of the apartment. After that a second interview was held with each family to discuss the models and storyboards. Together with the family small changes were made in the model. When the separate models were finished I assembled them, making an apartment block of eight apartments. I presented the apartment block model at an event receiving very positive feedback from the user group with many of them eager to move in. Designing housing with the architect in a driving role and with a high user involvement the future design of housing can be of much higher architectural quality. The large scale industry of housing is difficult to change but small architect originated practices such as Bricolage can be a good way to take charge over the design process. A practice like Bricolage can have a close contact with the users, conduct personal interviews and really get to the core of what a family needs and want from their home. The transparent design process ensures the user that they pay for what they requested. For the architectural profession it can be a way to strengthen our role in the housing sector.

    Beyond humanities qua digital: Spatial and material development for digital research infrastructures2018In: Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, ISSN 2055-7671, E-ISSN 2055-768X, Vol. 33, no 2, p. 264-278Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Universities around the world have increasingly turned to digital infrastructures as a way to revamp the arts and humanities. This article contributes a fresh understanding by examining the material development of HumlabX, a research laboratory for digital humanities at Umeå University, Sweden. Specifically, we approach the empirical case as a timeline of research funding, projects, events, and deliverables to examine how the research laboratory as an organizational and material space developed and evolved in relation to new technology investments. Based on our analysis, we argue that while digital research infrastructures can, indeed, stimulate innovation in and around research, aimed to produce new knowledge, digital technologies carry social and material implications that affect organizational processes. We show that while knowledge production processes at HumlabX were highly influenced by the infrastructural legacy of the past, they indeed directed scholars toward innovation. By discussing these implications in detail, we move beyond the debate of humanities qua digital, and demonstrate the need for scholars of digital humanities to engage in the development of policies for digital research infrastructures. Using a Swedish case study, we argue that research laboratories for the digital humanities must be scrutinized and should be fully exposed as socio-material organizations that develop, and should develop, over time. In particular, we stress the need to ensure that digital humanities laboratories are sustainable and open for redevelopment.

    Abstract [en]

    Vårt Ålidhem (Our Ålidhem) is a project adressing the issue of women feeling unsafe at night in their own residential area, many even avoid going outside as a result of this fear. This is not a new problem and it exists in all cities of Sweden. There are some general parameters when looking for a solution, but in the end each city needs a specific one. This project deals with how Ålidhem, a million programme residential area in Umeå, could become a place in which all residents, regardless of gender, can feel safe. The proposal is a system of three parts: Vårt Ålidhem Lyser, The Check Points and Våran Kiosk.

    Blasphemous Special Economic Zone2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a volatile global economy, the Special Economic Zone (SEZ), represents the longing for a blank slate. Emancipated from national legislations through a “nested exceptionalism” (Bach, 2011) the SEZ seeks to create an autonomous enclave for the accumulation of labor surplus. However, as Keller Easterling has pointed out, the SEZ is also an expansive spatial product, representing the global neoliberal dream of a rational and friction-free urbanism. (Easterling, 2012)

    Through the use of fiction this paper speculates on how a tinkered and hacked Special Economic Zone could instigate a suspension of the habits of neoliberalism and generate new “blasphemous” (Haraway, 1991) forms of publicness within the zone. Analyzing the 1972 science-fiction novel Roadside Picnic, the paper dissects the inner-workings of a fictive zone in order to produce a set of concepts to project onto the existing SEZ. The Zone in the novel suspends the physical laws of the universe, but it also short-circuits idiosyncratic interests and egocentric desires, and opens up for altruistic dreams of collective joy beyond. The paper asserts that the use of fiction as an “engaged withdrawal” (Scott, 2003) can produce a strategy for radical inventiveness that is not tied down to the logics of the existing conditions, but on the contrary can disorient and destabilize existing structures.

    Following the analysis of the novel, the paper presents three architectural operations for projecting the conditions of the fictional Zone onto the logics of the SEZ: 1. Blurring the boundaries of form, plan and outline in order to destabilize rigid categories of program and behavior within the Zone. 2. Unexpected cross-programming as a way to allow dialectic relationship between social entities and spaces, and contradict the neoliberal idea of friction-free urbanism. 3. A new publicness based on collective desires and architectural form. This generic and reoccurring public space in the SEZ accumulates a surplus of collective delight, incompatible with the logic of capital.

    A central point in the paper is that the Zone in the novel engenders an intensification of life, replacing the mundane habits of the outside with an adventurous form of collective existence on the inside. This possible intensification would imply that the SEZ is not only a Zone of rational planning and economic development, but also a space for the formation of politics, where action, contention and creative resistance exists parallel to ‘business as usual’. As such the Zone is also a potential field for a dissensual architecture, setting the physical stage for the admission of the inadmissible voice and a constantly renegotiated publicness.

    Reflector: Towards a Material Semiotic of the (Black) Mirror2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper begins with the slightly tinted reflections of an urban landscape, seen through the vertical windows outside of an elevator shaft. Moving down, a reflected city is revealed – narrow and high, skewed and dreamy, fragmented pieces of an American cliché, freeway, lawn, stop sign, high-rise, car, sidewalk – a city of distanced otherness, generated by rays of light bouncing of the cylinder shaped envelope of glass. It could be the opening scene of Michelangelo Antonioni’s “La Notte”, a safe-haven for cineastes and architects, but it is in fact the Westin Bonaventure Hotel (Architect: John Portman & Associates) in downtown Los Angeles, a canonical love-to-hate project for the theorists of postmodernity in the 1980’s.

    Acknowledging but steering away from Fredric Jameson’s critique of this project as a “placeless disassociation”, the paper instead follows the trajectory of Norman Klein, embracing the reflective elements in John Portman’s work as scripted spaces of special effects. Just like the staircase, the railing and the furniture, the paper argues, the reflections from the elevator shafts, the empty office windows and the water pools contribute to the production of affect in this foyer.

    Following this the paper asks what a material semiotics for the mirror entails, and what the reflector does in relation to other agents of the foyer space – such as humans, stairs, landings, columns and doors? How can the reflector be seen as an operator in the scripted spaces of the hotel foyer? What are the potential strategies for using the reflector of these spaces for the introduction of incompatible perspectives and purposes?

    The paper then intentionally sidetracks into a discussion on the Camera Lucida and the Black Mirror (Claude Glass) as mechanical operators for the physical act of looking into a condition of otherness. Instead of addressing the unavoidable loss of meaning in the process of transcribing the object to a projected image, the paper takes great interest in the performativity of the image in itself, especially in relation to the foyer. Following this historical excursion, the paper returns to Portman’s hotel, applying the perspectival instruments of the past onto the spaces of the foyer and speculates on how the black mirror can be used to produce reflections of otherness in this luxurious time-space. The paper ends with a note on Jacques Rancière’s work on the aesthetic sensibility, and a discussion on ways for the reflector to become an operative instrument for the introduction of a previously unseen sensorium in the space of the foyer.

    Woolopolis: International Competition Winner2012Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Our project, Woolopolis, aims to consolidate the various functions and programs of New Zealand’s wool production into one dynamic community. Traditionally the programs associated with New Zealand’s wool economy - pasture, housing, shearing, production facilities and markets have been separated by both geography and context. This separation is no longer effective in a globalised world, so we turn to cohesion as a means of improving performance. Thus, Woolopolis takes the form of a complex network of programs - processing facilties at ground level, housing units lofted above, with the market functioning as the communal centre of the complex and mediating between the two. The architecture functions as a machine in which sheep can be fed, shorn, the wool processed and sold, all the while housing a diverse community of farm and factory workers, shearing hands, agricultural scientists, designers and investors integral to the wool economy.

    Housing units in the complex are adjusted for optimal living conditions - north facing to make the most of daylight hours, and turned against predominantly westerly winds. The whole complex functions as a singular machine - solar panels on the housing units help to power production facilities, rainwater catchment areas release the architecture from dependence on the existing grid and help to mediate the considerable water-usage associated with agriculture. The entire complex is lofted above the ground to make storage space for hay during harsh winters.

    Woolopolis is New Zealand’s traditional rural vernacular at hyperspeed - archetypal building forms, rugged local materials, constructed by local contractors and future dwellers. Woolopolis grows without the help of architects, and as it expands it does so on the condition and pace of the local context. Consolidating all functions of the wool production process into a singular eco-friendly complex, Woolopolis is a sustainable response to the motto, ‘think global, act local’.

    New Zealand’s Manawatu district is a fertile agricultural region in the lower North Island. One of the traditional centres of New Zealand’s wool production, sheep population, and vernacular culture, the Manawatu is now characterised by colossal windfarms and bleeding-edge agricultural science, a situation that demands new architectures catering to a rapidly changing landscape. Our project, Woolopolis, aims to consolidate the various functions and programs of New Zealand’s wool production into one dynamic community. Woolopolis takes the form of a complex network of programs - processing facilities at ground level, housing units lofted above, with the market functioning as the communal centre of the complex and mediating between the two.

    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade we have witnessed the strengthening of an international network of higher education all over the world. The need to educate and develop our contemporary society is a machine in continuous work and progress. Being a student is a condition that makes individuals, enriches culture and often crosses boundaries. Students are a necessary piece in the capitalist economy, which makes them a valuable and essential resource in order to sustain its markets. Therefore, countries and institutions compete to hold more and more students within their society but what are the consequences of the internationalisation of higher education (and its market(s) that is taking place on a global scale?

    The globalisation and internationalisation of education promote a migration of students always on the rise. In some cities such as Umeå, it implies consequent urban growth, the need to develop facilities, services and accommodations. Such patterns of immigration make students actors in the real estate market of the country they move to but they do not always find adequate conditions for their integration. The current economic crisis has debilitated many markets including that of real estate, and in that context, the thesis explores alternative ways of approaching affordable accommodation for students, as well as a different understanding of urban planning that aims at enabling diverse coexistences of students and other inhabitants and the progressive transformation and hybridisation of otherwise very homogenous areas of the city.

    Thinking with Interactive Artifacts: Reflection as a Concept in Design Outcomes2018In: Design Issues, ISSN 0747-9360, E-ISSN 1531-4790, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 48-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reflection is a recurring notion in the HCI/interaction design literature. Throughout the years reflection has been highlighted as a key dimension of design thinking and as an important ingredient of design processes. In this paper we take stock in our community's interest in reflection, and we suggest that while it has been acknowledged as a cornerstone for design processes, it has been less explored as a basis for design outcomes. Given this extensive literature study, it seems that 1) the interest in this area is growing, and we present tables that illustrate this growing interest over time; 2) reflection and behavioral change are two interrelated notions; and 3) these notions are well-explored in our field. Further, we suggest that as interaction design is increasingly exploring the design of tangible, smart, connected, and even intelligent artifacts, we should think about how reflection and our ability to think with artifacts can be extended to include the design of interactive artifacts. In this paper we suggest how that might be done, and we point at a design space for designing such interactive artifacts to think with.

    Human-Lion Territory: Negotiating Territorial Borders2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the interaction between natural and urban life through mutual recognition, viewing the clash of territorial borders as dynamic conditions rather than exclusion zones. Gir area in India has been investigated as a unique case where humans and lions for centuries have lived together and established a mutual respect. Rasulpara village is used as a local situation to analyze the relationship between humans and animals with the intention to understand how such relationship can be maintained. It has led to the recognition of the in-between as intermediate zones mediating exchange between the two systems. With humans relating to settled form as territorial constrains, the language of architecture becomes a messenger of a respect playing with a time-based system; mediating the balance between safe and unsafe. Learning from the existing relationship of mutual understanding aims to extract lessons for how to intervene in the context and other mediation areas between human and wild. Exploring these attributes through design has shown that built form can act as solid borders to classify and preclude, but also to invite cohabitation by respecting means of existence. Territorial conflicts can then be dealt with more sensitively, thus obtaining the equilibrium within a changing world anchored in traditional knowledge.

    Dharavi Democracy: A development of a  public space in Dharavi, Mumbai, with the aim of empowering the local communities in the political processes.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The residents of Dharavi lives under a constant threat of aggressive redevelopment. This project aims to increase the knowledge the inhabitants of Dharavi have of the place they inhabit. What is the history, what is there to be proud of and what are the alternatives? This public place will provide a space to take part in the process, gather in bigger groups, listen to someone with a message, discuss. But it will also be an agreeable space to be in, with places to sit in the shade, a place where children can play, where you can watch a film together with your neighbors and where a shortcut can give new input.

    The benefit of playing: - how to integrate women and children in public space through play and everyday activities2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Women and children are missing in the public spaces of Dharavi today. The public spaces are used differently by men and women. While men are using the public space freely, women only enter the public when they have reasons for it. It could be for shopping, making errands or picking and leaving their children at school.  

    In the surroundings of the Default Site, there are six schools which all lack proper and safe playgrounds for the children to play in. By linking a space for the everyday activities of the women with a space for children to play in, in connection with the schools, I hope to give them reasons for leaving home and becoming natural actors in the society in which they live in. The space encourages meetings and interaction, which hopefully will lead to new acquaintances and a stronger community, and also develop the relation between the mothers and their children.
