Abstract [en]

In this thesis I seek to investigate in the physical expressions of waiting spaces, with a particular focus on Arlanda Airport outside of Stockholm. With increased mobility in society, non-places like this where the users mainly wait, will plausibly continue to develop. At the same time, the act of waiting is threatened as it is being affected by other functions such as logistic, operational and commercial interests. Challenging an archetypal relationship between the human body and the traditional waiting space, this thesis presents a diverse concept in architecture for waiting. I have, in this work, focused on the gap between the built environment and human bodies. A gap that generates form and questions the prioritized spatial values of our time.  

With “Outlaw Behavior” I emphasise the relationship between human and the act of waiting to offer a new way of experiencing a non-place. It could be suggested that contemporary architecture’s focus on transit spaces has led to the primacy of commercialism, meaning “time killing”. Thus, architecture for waiting tends to miss opportunities for wider exploration and diversified experiences beyond the generic, universal waiting area. The goal of the project is to create a spatial value of waiting, which in a fast-paced society challenges and questions the way our time is being consumed.
