    Common Making: Reactivating Cultures of Togetherness as a Vehicle fro Change2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Societies of today faces social, ecological and economic crises with increasing segregation and inequality among people and places. Individualism and competitiveness is diminishing the general feeling of togetherness with a loss in trust, alienation and increasing ill health. Through privatizations and enclosures of common and shared resources, the care for what is held in common, as well as the care for a common future, is lost. The main desires are mostly related to consumption, which is causing severe environmental consequences.

    There is a need for a holistic approach, interlinking ecological, economic and social systems. To handle current crisis and future challenges, resilient societies must be constructed to meet the complexity of unknown, uncertain futures.

    The current times requires common actions enabling time and space for negotiating, practicing cooperation and desiring a common future. Collectives of people sharing stories and experiences, can create new forms of togetherness. The role of the architect as the autonomous expert needs to be challenged and the short-term thinking within design, its inherent production of desires and scarcities, needs to be questioned.

    Collective ways of working are explored through situated projects in different contexts and scales. Raising global issues through local concerns. The projects aim to reactivate cultures of collaboration and investigate how to make time and space for new encounters enabling the sharing of experiences and knowledges.

    By making together, visualizing what could be and projecting an alternative future, things might be set in motion. Through raising the matters of concern in unexpected contexts, making them spatial (and telling new narratives), the imagining of a different world might become possible.

    Common making requires practicing the skill of cooperation where eventual divisions and conflicts needs to be recognized. There is a need to suggest, to act and to make new narratives spatial. Independent of scale, all encounters matters.

    Umeå train and bus station: A strategy for an enviromentaly friendly future2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Umeå is one of the few growing cities in the north of Sweden. Due to the cities geographical location its economy is in large part dependent on its connection to larger cities in Sweden such as Stockholm and Gothenburg. As a result of this dependency fast traveling options are a must for Umeå to continue growing. Today aviation is the only traveling option available which provides the speed needed for travel between Umeå and larger economies in the south.This paper analyses how the process of centralization has caused this large dependency on the economies of Sweden’s larger cities. The conclusion drawn from this analysis is that for Umeå and the northern reaches of Sweden to become less aviation dependent the region needs to become more independent. A stronger northern economy would lessen the need for traveling to for example Stockholm.The purpose of the study is to pinpoint some measures which would lead Umeå and its surrounding areas towards this independency. To this end several measures of change are explored from new laws and regulations promoting the countryside to investments in internet connection, public service and infrastructure. These strategies need be looked into and implemented simultaneously for Umeå and the north to have a more independent and environmentally friendly future.The research continues by focusing on of these parameters more specifically train and bus infrastructure. The study concludes that there are many investments that could be made in order to strengthen both passenger and freight infrastructure in the north of Sweden. These investments include restoring the inland train line and extending the bus network to include a larger part of the countryside. For this to be possible several changes need to be made including building a new train and bus station in Umeå to support the increase in passengers and traffic. Such a station would act as a hub for the passenger traffic of Norrland as well as become a new public space for the city of Umeå.

    Activists in Movement: Unaccompanied Minor Refugees and the Formal and Informal Approaches to Life2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We live in an unfair world full of borders, in which the right to move freely is not granted to everyone in the same degree. Refugees are constantly challenging these borders, they are activists in movement: the true avant-garde (Arendt) of our time, they resist by moving. These movements are opening spaces and times for other ways of living lives together.

    Powers and governments put in place geographies and bureaucracies of control and management to prevent and stop the movement and the arrival of these refugees; their movement is a threat to the nation state. At the same time, aware of the inevitability of their arrival, they also enable and allow strategies to take advantage of their presence.

    Studying these geographies and bureaucracies in the world, and in Sweden, shows the simplified life that forcefully is “offered” to those who are granted asylum.

    In parallel, various alternative non-hierarchical and informal networks have existed on the margins of such bureaucracies showing a much more human, interesting and free life.

    Dimensions of hosting: Food as connector2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “Hosting is power and by having power you become visible.”- Sandi Hilal

    Urban loneliness

    We have become loners. Often, we feel loneliness, sadness because one has no company, are feeling remote or isolated. We are living so close to people we don’t know, sleeping just a meter from someone, who you don’t know more about than the name on the door. We are watching people’s perfect lives through a screen. Constantly connected but never really connecting. We feel the pressure of maintaining a flawless façade while at the same time feeling overlooked.

    Today, we are living in a society where independence and freedom is highly valued. The amount of people living alone are constantly increasing and today 40 % of the households consists of one person. At the same time, we can see a trend of increased loneliness. Almost 300 000 are socially isolated, ½ to 1 million is defined as socially alone and 1/6 answered that they don’t have a close friend.

    To have a society where you can be independent and have the freedom to form the life you want to live is essentially a great thing. The problem arises where there is no space to connect and you are unwillingly living a lonely life. We are living in new constellations, away from the nuclear-family and the built environment needs to follow, providing alternatives for dwelling and public spaces for interaction.

    Four layers of hosting

    Through the mapping, me and my partner Aida Davallou did in the autumn term, we found how hosting can be empowering, how hosting events connect people and how you get an instant friend inviting someone to your home, sharing your most private space. Hosting, or the act of inviting, is a great method to reduce the loneliness in the city and forms the entire project, from the public to the home.

    The public – Giving the opportunity for the citizens to act as hosts, arranging events for friends or forstrangers.

    The organizations – Organizations together with the community arranging open events to reduce loneliness.Providing a platform for interactions and new friendships, also for those without a socialcontext or invitation.

    The community – Open up their homes occasionally, inviting the public to small, more intimate dinner eventsheld from the common kitchens of the residents.

    The home – Inviting people into your everyday life through co-living. Giving social context whilesharing kitchen and living spaces. Also hosting temporary living for residents moving betweenmultiple homes.

    Food as connector

    In every event we analysed for the research food was an important factor, constantly present if not as the mainfocus. The smell or taste of a specific dish is one of the strongest impressions giving a sense of home. Food tends to bring people together and functions as a great catalyst for interactions. When everyone is gatheredaround the dining arrangement it is a perfect time to share how your day went, your best recipes or yourfavourite story. A peaceful time of the day to appreciate your friends and family or getting to know someonenew. That’s why food is a strong influence on the project.

    Togetherness

    The aim of this project is to provide a platform where everyone has the right to be a host, being empoweredand visible. This is the space for the citizens of Umeå to connect, as well as a home to share.

    Charting a course  - Breaking the Consensus Machine -: Experiential Conversations; the Working in Emancipatory Practices (then and now)2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In my research AND/ OTHER – the possibilities of emancipating architecture –, I use a method that charts a course through a specific critical comparative analysis combining theory and practice. Besides comparing two contemporary architectural projects (or more) I weave in associations from film, literature theatre, art, and our lived experiences (everyday), how through the sensible perceptions are enacted. By ‘juxtaposing’ fragments of art, architecture and theory my intention is to locate, and discover a common mentality that produce, and instrumentalize, possible emancipatory practices1. Not a continuous historic line (also not out of nostalgia), but instead bits and pieces of history are being mobilized (Utopistics)2 to understand and lay bare this mentality in its working, and its future potential.

     

    I call these critical comparative analysis conversations, and set them up as a multitude of dialogues. It is less about conversations between people, but about ideas and their instrumental devices, how these ideas and devices allow complex, associative, confrontational and experimental readings, similar to what happens in reality, where our behavior is an ambiguous simultaneity of distraction, contemplation, projection, imagination and occurrence. The act of confrontation and re-reading of realities is breaking the consensus machine. My intention is to produces an Atlas of conversations, a mapping through heterogeneous methods of analyzing; image, film, text, writings, photography, media representations, and stories, to understand and clarify the nature and character of the emancipatory in architecture, not what it is, but how it operates in its working. In examining architecture itself, my aim is not to validate a theory; rather, architecture itself generates its ‘own’ theory while dealing with the whole intricate relationship between architecture its environment and its user.

    The Possibility of Emancipating Architecture - Categories of Estrangement -2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I am investigating how Architecture, can play an emancipating role in society. Given the current crisises on many fronts, and the lack of social responsibility in architecture today, asks for a new approach. A new social commitment and engagement is needed.

     

    I belief change starts when, you challenge the cliché, and activate other liberating possibilities. Conventions foremost affirm the status quo. I think categories of

    ‘Estrangement’ (as strategy) with its specific set of tools, can open up a liberating direction. The example of the Guggenheim museum by Frank Gehry in Bilbao, although interesting as a strange new form, doesn't question the status quo, it confirms it by its self-referential spectacle. It revolutionises the conventions, in this case the one of consumerism and musealization.

     

    Working with different kinds of techniques of estrangement; subversion, reflexivity, and the absurd, among others, creating possibilities of emancipation, and activating the spectator, is not new. A tradition of examples can be collected when we cut through history from this perspective of liberating estrangement.

     

    Estrangement is a technique that originates in literary semiotics and the theatre of Bertolt Brecht. It was coined by the Russian Formalist Viktor Shklovsky, as ‚ostranenie' - translated as defamiliarization or estrangement - in his early essay 'Art as Technique' (1925) to suggest both distancing (dislocating) and making strange. Shklovsky’s theory of estrangement was intended in opposition to the economic and utilitarian discourse of efficiency and useful expenditure. The device of estrangement places emphasis on the process rather than the product of art, on cognitive ambivalence and play. Estrangement for Shklovsky was never from the world but rather an estrangement for sake of the world’s renewal.

     

    I will trace the history of these different emancipating techniques to understand what they produce. At the same time I observed that there is a tradition of estrangement in architecture as well. In my research I will critically examine at least five canonical and contemporary architectural projects, among which the CCTV building in Beijing, beyond the purely traditional (stylistic) approaches of analysis that primarily focus on the formal aspects of a project. I belief that architecture should not be understood merely as an inert physical object, but should be considered from what it animates while being occupied and being seen. A building is not simply a reflection of its functions, but is in fact active, constitutes information, behaviour, actions and perception over time, which are expressed both through the materiality (aesthetics), the organisation of its program and the image it projects. By looking at case-studies, in parts or completely, the theory becomes more clear, and at the same time the architectural means become visible.

     

    The goal of my research, besides theoretical reflection, is to make an atlas of examples - case studies - that show, without becoming a manual - how spatial and aesthetic techniques - (devices such as: windows facades, trajectory, colour, the envelope, plan section) of different scale, from object to city park, through their estranging potential, mobilise - provoke - install - emancipating alternatives, or in other words create situated freedoms in complex conditions. In short, I am looking for a micro-politics of change that reinvent the idea of publicness through an estranging and spatial aesthetic that enacts new forms of emancipation. With my presentation at the symposium I, on the one hand, summarize what categories of estrangement are about (theoretical reflection), and on the other, exemplify its relevance through the case studies of different scale.

    Haunted by shadows of the future: ARTEFACTS2014Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Haunted by Shadows of the Future: ARTEFACTS identifies objects from the late 1960’sto late 1970’s that have personal or familial relationship with the people and thecommunities who lived during this era, and that embody a specific sense of belonging,a desire of being part of the modern Swedish society TAKING shape at that time. THEresult of this collective search is an assembly of artefacts, customs and domestic tropes,intertwined with rich personal stories and discoveries. These include the briefcase ofan insurance salesman, the reel-to-reel tape recorder that captured a popular talkshow’sevening broadcasts, audio of a Somali literary exile, the early launch of plastictoys, vacation slide shows, postcard collections and super 8 films, Pop textile prints andclothing patterns, local green plantings, supermarket anti-consumer campaigns, therevolutionary “du” reform, and other contemporary references, like a Swedish feministmanifesto and a popular oil heater from Iran. The City Museum’s model apartment inTensta, located at Kämpingebacken 13, serves here as a time capsule that unfolds anentire universe behind these UTMOST everyday objects.

    Analogue Archive: Curating Space for the Craft of Analogue Knowledge, its Evolution, Duration and Effect.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My claim is that analogue knowledge must be enacted and therefore cannot be documented explicitly, the emphasis lies in the process therefore architecture must address it in such a way. The architecture lends itself to knowledge as a carrier, of both a space for it to enact and to embody its processes and output. The process here is associated with craftsmanship, enduring and evolving where the craftsperson works to delay the image; they do not work to a set goal (the image) but only to further their own knowledge and craft, it is essentially a process of trial and error that evolves the ‘thing’ it is creating. Craft does not hold itself to exquisite products, quite the opposite; its focus is not on the thing it has created but the idea itself, the iterative act, that is craft.

    When coupled with the practice of analogue knowledge a proposition emerges, an architecture that embodies and addresses this knowledge as a practice archive. A space that pertains to the principals explored in theory however introduces a platform for craftspeople to inhabit and enact. A space that is not ephemeral, where analogue knowledge can endure and evolve as a practice. It becomes an archive not as accumulative practice, but as engaged or performative practice, the performance is the carrier of theory and enactment of knowledge.

    The Laundry Room: A Method for Democratic City Planning and Design2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This text explores and area of architecture connected to co-design of city planning and design and various other subjects connected to civic engagement and social integration. The first part is compiled by research and theory considering the background of the project and ideas contemplating co-design, the role of the architect as facilitator, translator and assimilator and the user as expert and weighs the potential and risks involving these. The second part considers the organisation Tvättstugan – an institution for democratic city planning, existing actors of interest, the present planning process and how to navigate within it if one’s intentions were to introduce an alternative to it. The third part addresses the project Kvartersråd – a neighbourhood council and particularly describes the project and the process of co-designing a proposal.

    The first part of the thesis mention the designer and the planner as well as the architect since the ideas presented considering co-design encapsulate many professions and are not only applicable to specifically architectural processes of design. Later in part two and three the text focuses more specifically on the design profession of the architect.

    This text is part of a wider architectural master thesis that also consists of a presentation presenting models, drawings and other various artworks.

    Creative Change: An investigation of how creative places can strengthen the schools and communities in socio-economically challenged areas2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To be creative or innovative is a highly praised trait within the labor market of today. Though it has often been seen as a talent only granted to a chosen few, most evidence imply that it is something that we all possess and can develop. Creativity within education also appears to have positive impacts on school-results, attendance and confidence among students. Yet creativity has a low status within the current education system, making the opportunities to develop our creative ability insufficient. 

    Architectural projects and development strategies focused around creativity have occurred frequently on the agenda since the release of Richard Floridas book “The Rise of the Creative Class” in 2002. An increase of creative activity has been linked to growth but lately also to gentrification, as if this was an inevitable result. The focus has been on economic growth and increased tourism, instead of what creativity can bring to the individual and the community. 

    This thesis aims to answer two main questions: First, how can creative places benefit the schools and communities in socio-economically challenged areas? Second, how can these creative places best be designed to achieve these benefits? Creative places refer in this thesis to public spaces that encourages creativity, which can be places for creative production but also places for experiencing creative works of others. The aim is also to implement the learnings into a design proposal, where the area Vivalla in Örebro is chosen as the site for implementation.

    In order to answer the first question, the paper examines the existing conditions of vulnerable areas in Sweden and some of the available research on creativity in relation to education. To gain knowledge about design aspects four existing projects that aims to be places for creativity are analyzed. The local conditions of Vivalla are mainly researched through qualitative methods of observation, interviews and a workshop with students from the local school. Finally, the ideas and findings are implemented into a design-proposal, which is a vision for a new creative platform. Rather than a finished project, the proposal should be seen as a vision showing the potentials of the site that can be used as a basis for discussion with the local actors,

    This paper provides some useful arguments to why creative places in socio-economically challenged areas are worth investing in and highlights the importance of an inclusive development process. Finally, it also provides a diverse view of one of Sweden’s most segregated areas.

    Cultural Amnesia: Imagining Alternatives to the Dystopian Future of Norrland2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By the term “Cultural Amnesia” I refer to a diagnosis of a condition that has been caused by external damage or trauma. This may result in a society forced to forget about their roots, culture and connection to the landscape, once been embraced by a community as a whole but now been forgotten and replaced by different ideals that are displaced from context. 

    It is an assumption that something is missing or is about to be forgotten, that would have disastrous consequences. The causes of the amnesia need to be diagnosed and identified and their possible effects imagined.

    The term “Culture” here can refers simply to the way how have been done and developed in a specific context from the beginning of times. Cultural amnesia, then, would be the widespread ignorance of and indifference to what used to be important but has now fallen into forced displacement, resulting in a possible “dystopian future”. 

    The aim of the research is to analyse the recent developments in Norrland and the Sápmi areas that are largely affected by capitalist space production. It highlights also the story of displacement and injustice the Sámi have suffered. There has been an exploitation of the Sámi rights by the government and evidence of the Swedish state land theft from the Sámi. The real repression began with the modernization of society, where the causes lay in factors like the need for forest, agricultural efficiency and new definitions of land ownership. Today the indigenous people find themselves fighting a battle against the state and multinational mining companies, while their land, cultural heritage and their way of life is at stake. 

    Can we imagine a cure, a plan of care or an antidote to Cultural Amnesia?

    The family home: Sharing extremely limited space in Dharavi2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor's project was to find a typology for an apartment house in Dharavi in Mumbai, India. Dharavi is extremely congested and living space is scarce so the goal was to come up with good solutions for very small apartments that wouldn't be so costly and that each could be shared by a family. How could one make most of a very limited and shared living space? The family is a very important structure in the Dharavian sociaty and it seems like people rarely live alone or have their own space. The question whether individual space is important arose but is not answered in this project. However a home with a certain flexibility might be helpful if there's need to divide living space and change the home according to several people's wishes and needs. The idea of people's need of more spaces to the home than one single room was interesting during the project, as was the thought of taking advantage of the warm climate and not seal the home completely off from outdoors. 

    Important aspects of the project, except creating apartments that didn't have a big footprint, was to create homes that improved living conditions. These homes would need to be well ventilated and have sufficient light sources, among other qualities. The central part of the typology came to be, literally, a small courtyard to provide these mentioned qualities.

    The Cornerstone Project: Housing for an aging population2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the aim of integrating apartments for elderly with the city to establish housing environments which allows an aging in place without the loss of social connection and a sense of participation in the city, the core strategy of this project, based on previous case studies, has been to combine apartments dedicated to elderly with a public function. In the case of this project, the public function is made out of a small scale public city district library. Within the project, the library is seen as one of few truly inclusive meeting places, a public space which preserves parts of the site for the surrounding neighbourhood to access. But it is also seen as a place for contemplation and discussion as well as a symbol for a life-long learning. Most importantly though, the library is treated as a bridge between the large society and the close environment, between the city and the secure housing, the public and the private, the group and the individual as it provides the area with a space for social gatherings, at the same time as it enrichens the close environment surrounding the elderly apartments.
