    Charging the Void: (Perception Odd Logic)2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    As a concern for how new city developments invest in commercial

    public space of economic activity rather than cultural activity and

    inclusion, part of a global trend and also the case of Umeå’s ambition

    to reach the population growth of 200 000 inhabitants by the year of

    2050. The question to be asked in this regard is what kind of effect

    does this produce on the way we as local inhabitants can take control

    and be part of the creation of our own living environment? Or are

    we just victims of a life consumed by slow decay due to the capital

    dominance?

    In relation to this main concern, the project has been developing

    through the aspect of acknowledging inferior space and abandoned

    objects as a method and typology to analyze alternative ways to

    perceive the city off based the logic of clear function and use, but in

    terms of human interaction and subjective perception of space. The

    point of departure and important key element for this development

    derived from the early stages of research and influential work by

    Robert Smithson’s Monuments of Passaic New Jersey, (1967) with

    a main quote on the description of Smithson’s work and the term of

    monuments, here defined by Ann Reynolds as: “how something plot

    out and charge a space with meaning”

    Learning from memory traces of an abandoned set of futures evoked

    the idea and strive towards creating space not tied to a specific

    use or function, but as a collaboration and juxtaposition between

    form and the viewer’s experience. In add to an understanding of a

    presence which ties together the past and the present as an indirect

    translation of the developed concept for contemporary Ruins, as the

    perception of void. The ruins association to object defined through

    the observer became a guideline towards the aim of designing nonhierarchical

    space, free of us and interpreted by the visitor within the

    city scape.

    Based on this foundation this thesis aims to examine the possibilities

    of architectural structures which can encourage and create conditions

    for new cultural and social meetings. The abstract concept of space

    and deliberate openness to interpretation can allow the visitor to

    take co-authorship of their own living environment based on their

    personal understanding and imagination of that space. The action

    is by deliberate disjunction between form and viewer’s experience

    forced by a superimposition plan as a design strategy for redeveloping

    the current Döbelns Park into a new culture park in the city context

    of Umeå, Västerbotten, Sweden. Fragments of the park will in add

    create a system of integrated monumental sculpture scapes, as a

    network of in-between small scale interventions adapting to specific

    site conditions together with implemented greenery. To secure areas

    within the city scape with access to greenery and social interactive

    meeting points, part of the Urban strategy.

    Censor Report Master's Theses Evaluation: Chalmers University of Technology 20142014Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    My general impression after 3 days of intense and hectic activity and exposure to many different kinds of work is that of an extremely diverse production. The Master’s Theses produced at the Department of Architecture at Chalmers are very different not only in their themes and issues but also in their formats, procedures and in the very definition of the thesis as a “thing”.

    Far from seeing this as a problem, I consider this one of the most interesting aspects and one of the strengths of the school and its production. Against an ever-growing trend towards profiling and specialization, and especially an illdriven demand for standardization in the name of quality, I find it not only refreshing and brave but also paramount that the school maintains and encourages an environment in which many different understandings of a Master’s thesis coexist and even challenge each other. I have seen interesting text-based, written theses that are pure research and reflection; complex research projects with an associated design proposal; purely formal and material speculations and explorations through the development of very specific building assignments; urban interventions within well defined and researched social contexts; research reports with an emphasis on sustainable development; and a few other…

    Technologies of Experience and Intravention: A Floating, Silent Room2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper aims at thinking through the collaborative process of conceiving and making an ‘impossible’ room inside Umeå School of Architecture: a small, more intimate, warm and silent space – a room that floats in the air – thought as an alternative to the excessively open, cold and loud spaces of the building. The room is at the same time a u-topian space and a practice of world transformation: an impossible room in relation to the difficulties of its materialization and to its performance as a critique of the discursive, regulatory and regulated space of the university; and an act of construction that operates not only through material re-arrangements and the physical transformation of the spaces of the school but also with important effects regarding symbolic capitals, relational ecologies, the lives of those involved, shared responsibilities and the establishment of the common.

    Exploring this ‘something common’ involves developing alternative value systems in order to document and judge the effects of the ‘intravention’ both in the spaces of the school and in the times, academic experiences and, particularly, the lives of the actors involved in or affected by the project.

    We will be using two other transversal notions along that of intravention: the idea of technologies of experience will help us think through and develop ways of affording spatial experiences instead of looking at technology as an isolated, autonomous construct; and the idea of collaborative affordance, suggesting that straightforward, uncomplicated solutions enable an experience of participation/contribution that can yield effects in terms of the responsibility, care and fidelity to the things built by those involved in its design and construction.

    We believe architecture must move away from divisions between theory and practice - or thinking and making - and incorporate also affective and non-representational dimensions to the task of ‘architecting’ the world. This can happen through the production and invention of new ways of thinking/making/feeling – or caring – transversally and inseparably based on the specific conditions of a situation, privileging an open-ended, processual and experience-based way of knowing and being in the world.

    Technologies of Experience and Intravention: an Impossibly Floating Silent Room2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In relationship with the proposed dimensions of ‘worlding’ and ‘u-topos’, the paper aims at thinking through the collaborative process of conceiving and making an ‘impossible’ room inside Umeå School of Architecture: a small, more intimate, warm and silent space – a room that floats in the air – thought as an alternative to the excessively open, cold and loud spaces of the building.

    The room is at the same time a u-topian space and a practice of world transformation: an impossible room in relation to the difficulties of its materialization and to its performance as a critique of the discursive, regulatory and regulated space of the university; and an act of construction that operates not only through material re-arrangements and the physical transformation of the spaces of the school but also with important effects regarding symbolic capitals, relational ecologies, the lives of those involved, shared responsibilities and the establishment of the common.

    Matters of Care and Responsibility:: Curiosity-Driven Worlding Practices at the Laboratory of Immediate Architectural Intervention2015Inngår i: Nordic - Journal of Architecture, ISSN 2244-968X, Vol. 5, nr 4, 98-101 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the performative, we shift our attention from what a thing looks like to what a thing does, and from objects and artefacts to ‘movements’ as well as to the effects of our practices and actions in life. This transformational ‘mode’ echoes the notion of worlding – with its accompanying history of ‘indefinition’ and indetermination as well as its clear co-responsive engagement in the making of the world – and locates us in the realm of ‘situatedness’, or inside phenomena. We are within, and active parts of, specific situations that we encounter in relationship to a series of concerns, things that really matter and that have to do with the ongoing becoming of the world. Becoming inside these situations requires a certain fidelity, a certain willingness to stay and to endure; a caring in duration. In this duration it is both possible and necessary to develop situated knowledges, which emerge as ‘ways-of-doing-and-making’ from our engagement in worlding practices, practices which are also, for that reason, learning experiences.

    Aproximación, reducción, materialización: Algunas reflexiones acerca de la insuficiencia de la representación a partir del trabajo de Peter Zumthor2010Inngår i: 13 Congreso Internacional de Expresión Gráfica Arquitectónica - Valencia, 2010 / [ed] Editorial de la Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), Valencia: Editorial de la Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) , 2010, 25-32 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    While the ‘globalized’ architectural discipline continuous its immersion in a trend that privileges quantitative and mediated experiences, Peter Zumthor’s small office/workshop in Haldenstein - a small village in the swiss Graubünden – works by slowly developing each assignment to the last detail, always privileging the quality of the final result as the maximum value and top priority. Regardless of the rash global competition to attract the media, Zumthor carefully chooses his clients, does not allow the re-printing of his own monograph and proves himself very reluctant at the time of accepting interviews. Often, he affords certain moments to take some distance and reflect critically about his own creative activity and about the essence of architecture, what has led to a number of texts, concepts and categories that are extremely interesting from the point of view of representation. The text that follows explores and revisits some of those ideas and categories through a reading and a translation of some of his texts that tries to relate them to his work. More particularly, the article “Partituren und Bilder. Architektonische Arbeiten aus dem Atelier Peter Zumthor. 1985-1988” that was part of an exhibition held with the same name at the Architekturgalerie in Lucern, only available in German, has been translated as well as another text and interview held around the house Luzi.

    Habitar juntos: sobre el papel de la arquitectura en la producción de espacios colectivos habitables2011Inngår i: Proyecto, Progreso, Arquitectura, ISSN 2171-6897, E-ISSN 2173-1616, Vol. 2011, nr 5, 92-107 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reflects on the need for another approach to the concept of habitability; for collective solutions and proposals at all scales, transversally and simultaneously, from the room to the city, restoring the value of the collective as an alternative to prevailing fragmentation and individualism. Faced with those practices that are either entertained in the incessant production of new forms, or are aligned with the neoliberal system in the task of producing and absorbing surplus, at the expense of creative destruction of the urban space and the territory, there is an urgent need for other ways to firmly and uncompromisingly approach the task of planning coexistence. It is imperative to move beyond the formal and typological, incorporating not only the well-known rhetoric of adaptation, dissociation and other contemporary rituals of the private, but also the critical planning of those common, collective, public and intermediate spaces that promote sociability and co-existence, and make it possible to share spaces, resources and experiences.

    Abstract [es]

    Algunos han anunciado, optimistamente temprano, el colapso de la denominada “starchitecture”, la arquitectura global contemporánea que domina los mercados de la mano de una élite de arquitectos de la ciudad global, ahora distribuidores y suministradores de iconografías urbanas que van definiendo a su vez una imagen global: la cara visible del planeta. Decimos optimista, porque no estaría mal presenciar el fin de un entramado que beneficia sólo a los miembros de un selecto club de arquitectos globales, políticos y poderosos. Y temprano, porque parece que a pesar del simbólico incendio del edificio TVCC en Pekín el pasado febrero de 2009 y los estragos causados por la crisis mundial, la arquitectura global y sus huecos productos continúan triunfando.

    Living together: on the role of architecture in the production of habitable collective spaces2011Inngår i: Innovating, housing, learning: Oikodomos international conference 2011 / [ed] Oikodomos - Sint-Lucas School of Architecture, Brussels: Sint-Lucas School of Architecture , 2011, 24-43 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper reflects on the need for another approach to the concept of habitability that would allow the application of collective solutions and proposals simultaneously and transversally at all scales, from the room to the city, reclaiming the values of the collective as an alternative to the reigning individualism and atomization.

    In front of those practices that either linger in the unstoppable race to produce the new and its new shapes and forms or align with neoliberal currents in the production and absorption of surplus values at the cost of the creative destruction of urban spaces and territories, one must claim the urgent need of other ways of doing and making that engage decisively and uncompromisingly in the task of designing coexistence.

    It is paramount and indispensable to advance beyond the formal and typological, incorporating not only the already known discourses of adaptability, dissociation and other contemporary private rituals but also the critical design of common, collective, public and intermediate spaces that foster sociability and conviviality making the sharing of spaces, resources and experiences possible.

    Abstract [en]

    It seems as if the city, its space, its future, its production, were almost exclusively the result of a series of processes and flows taking place at unreachable distance, in un-known locations, mostly determined by the interests and wills of un-localized powers, actors and flows. As if the city could no longer be produced and shaped after the desires of its inhabitants, articulating one or another form of collective will. As if the city was no longer the soul and reason of urban politics but just the mere object of a kind of witty and hygienic managing that understands built space as a market and a product, placing economy at the very center of society.

    Urban agendas no longer include distributive and social considerations but focus now on economic growth, competitiveness and entrepreneurship. Creative flexibility, efficiency and strategic partnership exclude dissent, conflict and radical criticism nearly foreclosing the political from the face of the city. Cityspace anesthetized. Public space today is planned, designed, defined, segregated, policed, and set up in order to be easily controlled, ‘secured’, and ‘marketized’, in ways that lead to homogenous, uninteresting, smooth and clean surfaces that differ very much from the inherent characteristics of the very idea of public.

    Abstract [en]

    The general qualities of Peter Zumthor’s work, an extremely careful, sensitive, slow and respectful craft, make his nearly perfect architecture a very interesting object for analysis and research. All the more so in these times of vertiginous production and an almost blind exaltation of the new and the original, a time when the discipline of architecture, and consumer society in general, are moving more and more away from constructive traditions and from the wisdom of master builders. His work is a somewhat ‘resisting’ position, a fruitful and hopeful moving forward against the current, carried out on the basis of a very special reading of the place and its traditions, a very wise and precise selection of materials and a desire to approach technical and sensitive excellence in each and every aspect of the process and the built result.

    Sharing, displacing, caring: towards an ecology of contribution2013Inngår i: Intravention, durations, effects: notes of expansive sites and relational architectures / [ed] Alberto Altés and Oren Lieberman, Baunach, Germany: Spurbuchverlag , 2013, 272-283 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The optimism emanating from the opening quote, which I fundamentally share, confronts a grim landscape of universal cynicism, toxic capitalism and liberal, fake ethics. Those seem to be the reigning kings of the world we live in. Or in other words, shit-is-fucked-up-and-bullshit. The sentence, as found in the placards of some of the Occupy protesters, can be read in different ways. On the one hand, 

    one could see it as the epitome of modern cynicism, which Sloterdijk has famously described as “enlightened false consciousness”2 ; in this case, the informed consciousness that ‘shit is fucked up’, i.e. things are going quite bad and everything is out of control, we are not in control – no one is in control – and those in power are ‘bullshitting’ us while selling out to investors. There is no way out… we can’t do anything but continue expressing our cynical critique and turning our back on reality to focus on our own, already difficult, survival. On the other hand, the sentence could also be understood as the necessary denunciation of an unacceptable state of things, a loud cry that signals a profound disappointment and acts as the starting point of a search for justice, one that could thrust things towards what Simon Critchley has recently called an ethics of commitment and political resistance.3 

    It is certainly an active stance that I believe we should take, and one that avoids falling on the side of active nihilism: it is not about bringing this world down, destroying it and putting a new one in its place, but rather about transforming it radically from within. We have to imagine (and make become) another future, using the imaginative space of architecture, through the direct engagement in here-and-now situations. My suggestion is that sharing, displacing, caring might be important and necessary ingredients of such a demanding endeavour. In what follows below, I will try to sketch out what I mean by each of those verbs and the implications of such a performative approach for spatial practices.

    Towards the end of tourism: global architecture, fantasy and void in the age of withdrawal2012Inngår i: 6th Conference of the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU): TOURBANISM / [ed] International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU), Barcelona: International Forum on Urbanism - Escola Técnica Superior d'Arquitectura de Barcelona , 2012, 1-9 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper presents a reflection on the role of architecture in the age of global tourism and the post-political. It also examines the future of tourism in the face of a looming decline in the availability of cheap fossil fuels as a result of the so-called ‘peak oil’. Beyond the postmodern understanding of a metaphorical end of tourism based on ideas of “de-differentiation” and the coming together of tourism, work and everyday life, the paper moves toward the consideration of the possibilities for new forms of leisure and free time that could incorporate another idea of cultural exchange after the end of tourism as we know it. Instead of spectacle, the paper explores dreams and speculations about new utopian mobilities and encounters with the other beyond mere departures.

    Habitability, the scale of sustainability2009Inngår i: CISBAT 2009 Renewables in changing climate: proceedings / [ed] École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Lausanne: École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne , 2009, 409-414 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will explore an alternative to so-called „sustainable‟ models and strategies currently applied in the field of building, architecture and urbanism. In front of irrational resource consumption and an ever-growing waste generation or other problems, seemingly inherent to the current industrial productive model and now transferred to the production of space, the most critical and concerned sectors within these disciplines keep on applying scale-segregated sustainable solutions, i.e. working and intervening at the scale of the single built unit, or at that of the urban model.

    Instead, the paper will explain ongoing research related to the possibilities of generating another model based in the concept of “global habitability”, that would allow the application of those and other new solutions and mechanisms at all scales in a much more holistic approach to the implementation of sustainability: working transversally and simultaneously, from the room to the city.

    If current strategies aim at an increase in efficiency exclusively based in the reduction of resource consumption and waste generation, the new model would propose a redefinition of the other term intervening, namely utility. The very subject of sustainability is changed here through this redefinition; no more space but activity, no more the object but the process.

    Utility and use within architecture can be identified with habitability, here understood as the achievement of adequate social and environmental conditions in order to satisfy the socially acknowledged basic needs of people. Two different factors would determine such idea of utility: on the one hand the conditions of matter‟, as an expression of requirements related to space, resource flows and equipment needed to develop an activity; and on the other hand, the conditions of „orgware‟ or „privacy‟, another term that would include synergy – as the relation between the level of individuality and the level of collectivity - and management, as a combination of time, control and legislation.

    The main aim of the paper will be thus to present this reformulation of the idea of „habitability‟ as the only effective strategy towards an implementation of sustainability in the field of building. A systemic intervention, re-thinking the utility of architecture from the smallest spatial unit (the room) and extending its scale to that of the urban services (i.e. providers of any need that can‟t be fulfilled within the dwelling), allows achieving the maximum efficiency in terms of resource consumption; whereas social focus, incorporating individual, collective and organizational demands, allows the strategy to take roots in society expanding, thus, the likelihood of its success.

    Abstract [en]

    There are various forms of collective housing that propose and rehearse many different forms of sharing functions, spaces and other "things". Social and public housing usually encourage one or other form of sharing in search of affordability. Experiences of cooperative building often include shared facilities and spaces, some times shared activities. Student housing, women dormitories, workers dormitories, elderly homes, asylum homes, camps, monasteries, schools and other situations and forms of habitation offer multiple examples of diverse degrees and ways of sharing "things" through and in architecture. Multi-family dwelling, co-housing and many self-built initiatives and developments involve various degrees of shared and common spaces, often aiming at encouraging encounter, social exchange and collaboration.

    Common Life: LiAi research Report 2014-20152015Bok (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Common Life is the theme of the third term of the MA programme at the "Laboratory of Immediate Architectural Intervention", taught at Umeå School of Architecture. The main course in the term is called "Architectural Intervention, Realization and Consequences" and it aims at enabling the students to adopt a more reflective approach after their first year, in order to start developing a position as architects and as researchers. The semester is also a transition towards the final term in which students are to develop their Master's Theses. This publication gathers the results of a collective effort to carry out a research assignment that is conceived to prepare the students for some of the challenges they will have to face in order to complete those theses. 

    The course focuses on architecture's ability to provide, through its transformative power, conditions of 'possibility' for the sharing of various spaces, times, processes and other things. Producing uncertainties, contingent relationships and unexpected effects can help define more positive value systems than that of the building-as-consumable-object. We understand the building as a relational object within a complex meshwork of other things, people and technologies, and we explore the notion of architecture-as-an-emergent-'gift': a relational practice that enables encounter(s), and affords the sharing of moments, conversations and, why not, lives. Inhabiting the spaces, discourses and events of this common life, we try to develop a faithful and true care for the situations we are enmeshed in, and perhaps discover ways to displace what is, in order to 'architect' what could be and what ought to be. 

    Homes are very close to us, we inhabit them with our bodies, emotions and thoughts, we make them and they make us. How much are we ready to share of our lives? What can we obtain from sharing? What can we share? Are there degrees of sharing? What is our role as architects and the role of architecture in affording such 'sharings'?

    Immediate architectural interventions, durations and effects: apparatuses, things and people in the making of the city and the world2013Inngår i: Intervention, durations, effects: notes of expansive sites and relational architectures / [ed] Alberto Altés and Oren Lieberman, Baunach, Germany: Spurbuchverlag , 2013, 1, 28-45 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We begin setting out our thoughts on immediate architectural interventions with a couple of considerations. One of them addresses the architectural profession’s progressive disconnection from the social, from the political, from history, from the local, from ethics, from the body, from the ‘discipline’ itself. A whole generation of architects has abandoned the design of coexistence - undoubtedly one of the main tasks of architecture – in order to embrace, on the one hand, the serial fabrication of what we see as anti-architectures that repeat types, materials and structural systems on the basis of a pragmatic and productive juxtaposition of normative restrictions and the interests of bankers, investors, and developers; and on the other hand, the production of ‘stunning’ unique prototypes of image-architecture that satisfy the ill, self-worshipping yearnings of architects mired in the ceaseless luxury of formal exploration for the sake of form. We are critical of what is being embraced and of the practices that perpetuate disconnection from lived lives.

    Abstract [en]

    We define architecture not as an ‘it’ but as a process, or an apparatus; in our sense, architecture is a verb: to architect. Rather than refer to the (paradoxical) limiting of intervention’s in-between, we posit a new concept: intravention. Intra’s focus on the ‘within’ establishes intraventions as already a part of the spaces and times in which they are ‘intravening’.We find this a very productive notion, one which is useful in defining the (makeshift) edges of specific situations with which we engage; it helps us negotiate the expanse of the relational meshwork of material, sensory and discursive flows, and allows us to start ‘doing/making’ immediately. When we ‘intravene’, we cut within the site we inhabit to conceive and construct it. It also speaks about intentionality: one decides what the intravention includes or excludes. It is therefore an intensely political act, as well as an aesthetic one. We will discuss the notion of intravention in relationship to its ability to interfere with the complex making of the city and the world, articulating, detonating, and re-articulating relations, actions and intra-actions between various things, apparatuses, people, ANTs, spiders and, very possibly, sugar dispensers.

    Intravention, durations, effects: notes of expansive sites and relational architectures2013 (oppl. 1)Bok (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is a carefully edited collection of work and research produced at the Laboratory of Immediate Architectural Intervention, Umeå School of Architecture, Umeå (Sweden), from July 2011 to July 2013. It includes short texts, architectural manifestos, research papers, interviews, conversations, and a reflective journey through the work produced at the laboratory. It is also a compilation of fragile and hesitant voices and experiments, tests and discussions, in and around what one could provisionally call, in lack of a better name, relational architecture. And as you will see later, I believe that fragility and hesitation are necessary qualities of our work and our relentless moving and wayfaring. 

    It is organized in three parts: in the first one, after the foreword, the laboratory and some of its actions, reflections and proposals are presented and discussed from our point of view, from the inside. In addition to our own texts, this section includes reflections by Peter Kjaer and Roemer van Toorn, as well as an interview with Francesco Apuzzo and Axel Timm from ‘raumlabor berlin’ with whom we have developed a very interesting and fruitful relationship. The second part, ‘sites, agencies, matters of concern’, offers an overview of the work produced at the laboratory through graphic material (pictures and drawings) accompanied by a reflective discussion of the work and its relationships with what we have called, after Latour, our matters of concern. The third part shifts outwards and gathers contributions by some of the external guests whose committed participation we have had the pleasure of enjoying at some point during these years. Although related to our interests and positions, these contributions are those of ‘outsiders’ and therefore capable of enriching and expanding our range of questions and discussions in diverse and unexpected ways. This part includes texts by Susan Kelly, Javier Rodrigo, Antonio Collados, Aida Sánchez de Serdio and Per Nilsson. 

    The book ends with a text on the notions of ‘sharing, displacing and caring’, that initiates an exploration of what I think is a much needed - and anarchic - ethics of encounter and contribution, while sketching some of the questions, fields and lines along which I hope to continue moving forward in discussion, research and action.

    Questioning stong discourses: the LiAi2013Inngår i: Intravention, durations, effects: notes of expansive sites and relational architectures / [ed] Alberto Altés and Oren Lieberman, Baunach: Spurbuchverlag , 2013, 1, 22-27 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    At the Laboratory of Immediate Architectural Intervention, we believe that our only option is to understand, critique, intervene in, and devise the various apparatuses which are enmeshed in our enactments of the world in order to qualitatively transform it. Agamben understands the apparatus as anything which can “capture, orient, determine, intercept, model, control, or secure the gestures, behaviors, opinions, or discourses of living beings”.

    He not only includes Foucault’s “prisons, madhouses, the panopticon, schools, … factories, disciplines, judicial measures” but also “… the pen, writing, literature, philosophy, agriculture, cigarettes, navigation, computers, cellular telephones and--why not--language itself ...”.

    Apparatuses co-determine our enactments of the world. 

    Our work questions one of architecture’s apparatuses – the oft-persistent mirroring and representation of spaces of neoliberal agendas – and develops transversal, diffractive methodologies that produce effects in exchange with, and which transform, sites.

    Abstract [en]

    These matters of concern are not only tools for ‘mapping’, or for exploring and delineating agendas and positions but are also very concrete instances of thought. Though as framing devices they indicate realms of perception, thought and action, they are as well open enough to allow the production of the unexpected, the exploration of the uncertain, and the joy of speculative play. And: they are damn serious. They are ways of approaching crucial questions, things that genuinely matter. And their openness makes them excellent learning apparatuses as we have to work our way(s) through them and with them, exploring, discussing, speculating, testing and learning in the process of proposing what they could be or what they are. 

    Learning is here not a transferring of a series of frozen definitions, but a process and a practice through which a situated concept ‘becomes’. And it becomes in concert with things, spaces and discourses, in concert with worries, intuitions and fascinations, along the lines of our movements in the city, and around the sites of our interventions. These, our matters of concern, are tools for ‘architecting’ the world responsibly.

    Abstract [en]

    Do you see a capacity for transforming the city, its spaces or the use we make of them in artistic practice? Which public spaces do you use most day to day? Is there hope for the Santa Esperança public laundry? Do you think that Somanyprojects’ action has served to reactivate this space and awaken it in the town’s collective imaginary? Do you know of any other public space particular to women? What does the perspective of an artist offer us that an architect’s doesn’t consider when intervening in a space? What does a collaborative art practice consist of? Can an intervention of this type lead to some type of agencement on the part of the community? Would it be viable to consider more alternative uses of water such as public baths? How do you assess artistic practice as a work methodology for participatory urbanism projects? Would you be in favour of other activities being undertaken in public laundries besides washing clothing and the promotion of tourism? Are we very far off on the part of politicians from designing the cities where we want to live based on the needs of the citizens themselves? Do you have any questions for us? Do you have any questions for yourself?

    Latent spaces in the city: hybrid practices in the urban realm2012Inngår i: Chronocity: sensitive interventions in historic environment / [ed] Dimitra Babalis, Firenze: Alinea, 2012, 24-26 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper discusses the potential of creative spatial practices aiming at the reactivation of abandoned or disused public places showing how artistic and collaborative practices can detonate complex processes of community reactivation and empowerment while rehearsing alternative urban models and city-making approaches.

    According to De Certeau, the city stages an endless, constant and silent battle between the apparatuses that produce disciplinary space, namely spatial practices, responsible for a secret structuring of the conditions of social life, and the various individual modes of re-appropriation, multiple and “multiform, resistance, tricky and stubborn procedures that elude discipline without being outside the field in which it is exercised.” (De Certeau, 1984: 96)

    These re-appropriation tactics and practices open up the way to another city, to another space, a space away from the clear text of the planned, readable or visible city.  A space where another, invisible city lies. Such an ‘invisible’ city belongs to the realm of lived space; more precisely, life, the actual practices and relations taking place in space, the people inhabiting space, are sometimes able to imagine, engender and produce yet another type of space, or better still, a multiplicity of ‘other spaces’ that provide the locus for ‘other’ desires, needs, ideas, transitions, ‘becomings’, changes, actions and processes that would not find their place otherwise: a somewhat ‘invisible’ but fully lived space.

    Abstract [ca]

    Veus en la pràctica artística la capacitat per transformar la ciutat, els seus espais o bé l’ús que en fem? Quins són els espais públics que més utilitzes en el teu dia a dia? Hi ha esperança per al safareig de Santa Esperança? Creus que l’acció de Somanyprojects ha servit per fer reactivar aquest espai i despertar-lo en l’imaginari col·lectiu del poble? Coneixeu algun altre espai públic que sigui propi de les dones? Què ens ofereix la mirada d’un artista que no contempli la d’un arquitecte a l’hora d’intervenir en un espai? En què consisteix una pràctica artistico-col·laborativa? Una intervenció d’aquest tipus pot conduir a alguna forma d’agenciament per part de la comunitat? Seria viable contemplar usos més alternatius de l’aigua com ara uns banys públics? Com valores la pràctica artística com a metodologia de treball per a projectes d’urbanisme participatiu? Us semblaria bé que s’hi realitzessin als safareigs altres activitats a part de rentar roba i de difusió turística? Estem molt lluny per part dels polítics de pensar les ciutats on volem viure a partir de les necessitats del propi ciutadà? Tens alguna pregunta a fer-nos? Alguna a fer-te a tu mateix?

    Performing Public Space es una veu múltiple, una artista de Missouri, un catedràtic d’universitat, un arquitecte, un regidor d’urbanisme, un regidor de cultura, la directora d’un museu, uns comissaris, un educador i investigador de l’art, unes cinc dones que encara renten en un safareig, una família, un parell de doctorands i tots aquells que no hi han estat inclosos. També es una sèrie d’agraïments.

    Es una redefinició i construcció d’espai públic a partir d’una mirada multidisciplinària sobre l’espai comú , l’art i la vida quotidiana. Potser es una pràctica artística col·laborativa hibrida que posa de manifest accions, iniciatives, propostes i reconeixements al voltant d’un espai molt específic i peculiar com ara els safareigs d’aigua termal.

    Rethinking public space: other public spaces: community, hybrid collaborative art practices and urban reactivation2010Bok (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Rethinking Public Space is a research project by Marta Serra Permanyer and Alberto Altés Arlandis that tries to approach the diverse processes of production and transformation of contemporary public spaces as well the relationships that are often established between art, everyday life and the space of the city. The project, that takes a closer look at a series of interventions in the village of Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona) trying to reflect around the idea of hybrid collaborative art practice, has been possible thanks to a research grant obtained from the Sala’d’Art Jove de la Secretaria de Joventut de la Generalitat de Catalunya.

    The idea was submitted as a proposal to a call for projects during the year 2008 and was selected in the research category. The project has been carefully and attentively tutored by Montse Romaní, who has been able to provide her experience and help in a very generous way while supervising the project.

    Breaking the Taboo of Mental Health2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The latest statistics from the National institute of mental health says that almost 14% of India’s population suffer from mental illness. Of these roughly 10% are suffering from depression, anxiety or substance use. The study says that due to the stigma associated with mental disorders, nearly 80% had not received any treatment despite being ill for over 12 months.

    This is my starting point, and the project is about mental health and creating a suitable, caring environment where people dare to open up on this rather taboo topic, and also in the case of more severe illness, that people can get admitted and receive the help they need in order to get better.

    Overlaying the Process2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The Gujarat region, in which Ahmedabad is situated, is renowned for its textile production methods. The crafts of refining textile has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries and thereby the knowledge has been preserved. In recent years this chain of knowledge has been challenged through the efficiency and economical gain of chemical dyes and mass-production.

     

    The aim of the project is to widen the knowledge about the craft behind the textile and give room for the skill to be passed down to the next generation while at the same time give room for developing the techniques and designs to fit the current mode.

     

    A large part of the project evolves around the process of refining textile and the basis for my understanding of the crafts and their spatial requirements has mainly been through looking into the process of three resist-dye techniques. By looking at the process of each technique I was able to find where their spatial requirements overlap and how they could be organized according to production process.

     

    The project consist of two parts, one dedicated to the craft of refining and producing textile and one part where the work of the craftsmen can be exhibited, tailored, sold and taught through open workshops. The process of refining textile is separated from the rest of the project by the circulation. The more public part of the project is placed along the busy road as to shield the textile process from noise and dust. The two buildings are organized vertically following the logic of privacy and participation. The most private part of the refinement process, the dyeing is placed furthest away from the public while the public program become more participatory the further one climbs.

    Abstract [en]

    Raumlabor, or ‘space laboratory’, is a collective of 8 trained architects based in Berlin (Germany), that work in the intersection of architecture, city planning, art and urban intervention. They have been exploring alternative and playful modes of architectural production since 1999 when they started working together, usually proposing temporary projects that transform the urban landscape through what they call ‘urban prototypes’. Their works include the temporary transformation of the metro station Eichbaum (Essen/Mülheim, Germany) into an opera house, the temporary Officina Roma entirely built out of trash for the RE-cycle exhibition at the MAXXI museum, and the mobile building laboratory ‘The Generator’ that welcomes the public to interact around the construction of modular furniture. 

    During the autumn semester of the 2011-2012 academic year, we invited Axel and Francesco from raumlabor to come to the Laboratory of Immediate Architectural Intervention for a week to develop a collaborative workshop aimed at designing and building “something” that could be placed in public space as an intervention.

    Abstract [en]

    We are living in a globalized world where everything and everyone is connected at all times and society is changing in a faster pace than ever before. Old knowledge becomes obsolete and needs to be continuously replaced by new one, creating the need for learning to be life-long. The American futurist Alvin Toffler claimed as early as in the 1990s, that in order to be literate in the 21st century one must be able to learn, unlearn and relearn - but still our learning institutions look very much the same as they did during most of the 20th century. We are educated at a fixed period of life and taught a predetermined skill-set by our teachers to prepare us for future work. The issues we are facing are serious, such as global warming, automation and digitalization, and we are in urgent need of both unlearning and relearning how to live.

    Creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship have become political buzzwords, wide spoken by governments around the globe when trying to tackle the issues of an uncertain future and the need to reinvent in order to adapt. They are the individual skills that both politicians and the market are craving. However, creativity has mostly been linked to creative and high-tech industries - as means of being competitive in the harsh 21st century global work environment. As a result, we have seen how an unjust and unequal system has developed, and the rise of a new class. The creative class, as described by Richard Florida, holds vast privileges over other classes; earning substantially more money, and playing a leading role in the gentrification processes of cities. This asks an important question of who can be creative and innovative. Are these skills reserved for the select few, or can everyone be creative and innovative? Perhaps a new, more social, civic and democratic definition is needed to truly fit the issues we are facing in the 21st century. How can creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship be learned, actively pursued and continuously practiced by each and everyone in ways that do not solely benefit personal interest, but society at large?

    The aim of this thesis is to explore the role of architecture in a society that demands creativity and innovation, and how it can act to empower the individual. It will discuss how society is changing, both in the broader context of western societies and in the local context of Umeå, and how learning institutions can adapt for continuous unlearning and relearning. How do we create frameworks that nurture creative possibilities, and grants equal opportunities for everyone?
