    Aldrig Färdig...2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En möbel som har ett tydligt program, en tydlig funktion kan vara begränsande. I min metod har jag utgått ifrån en möbel och förbisett dess program för att vidga mitt sökfält när jag har gjort om den. Jag har sett begreppen funktion, upplevd funktion och materiell funktion som värden som går att höja eller sänka. Möbelns nätverk av komponenter har tillåtits bli instabilt för en stund, för att sedan se till helheten och göra nätverket stabilt åter igen - programmet får komma tillbaka men med en ny gestaltning.

    Konstfacks uteservering2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kandidatexamensarbete handlar om att gestalta och genomföra en uteservering vid Konstfacks huvudentré. Skolans lokaler ligger vid Telefonplan i Stockholm. Byggnaden som från början var ämnad åt tillverkning av telefonväxlar är ritad av Ture Wennerholm 1940. Sedan 2004 har Konstfack hyrt lokalerna med Vasakronan som fastighetsägare.

    Projektet har sitt ursprung i en tävling utlyst av skolledningen. Tävlingen gick ut på att rita utemöbler till det betongdäck som utgör skolans huvudentré. När det stod klart att vi vunnit tävlingen beslöt vi oss för att genomföra projektet som vårt gemensamma kandidatarbete.

    Projektet innehåller frågeställningar kring hur man översätter ett koncept till verklighet utan att tappa den röda tråden. Det har en förhållandevis enkel grundfrågeställning. Nämligen att det

    finns en befintlig plats där vi ska lösa funktionen uteservering. Det innehåller formgivning och planlösning samt praktiska och tekniska frågor kring utemöbler.

    Det handlar om övning i att driva projekt där vi hoppas komma ut ur arbetet som mer erfarna och säkra inredningsarkitekter och möbelformgivare.

    SYN-TES: human colour and light synthesis. Towards a coherent field of knowledge2010In: Colour and light in architecture: 11-12 November 2010 : proceedings / [ed] Zennaro, Pietrto, Verona: Knemesi , 2010, p. 235-240Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The research project SYN-TES aims at contributing to a theoretical development transforming the field of colour and light into a coherent field of research. This includes the identification of important problems and the development of theoretical and methodological tools for the trans-disiplinary understanding necessary to solving them. Special emphasis is put on the spatial interaction of colour and light in architecture.

    The work has the form of seminars/workshops where colour and light specialists from different academic disciplines (six Nordic universities) and companies (light sources, colorimetric standards, window glass) examine different aspects of the problem complex. Sub-projects deal with the epistemology and concepts of colour and light, with methods for analysing colour and light in existing architectural spaces and with the relationship between energy and light quality.

    Home is where her horror is: a call for knowledge about domestic violence in the field of architecture and in society2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The most dangerous place for a woman is her own home. More than 50 cases of abuse against women a day are reported in Sweden, and on average a man in Sweden kills a woman he has or has had a relationship with every three weeks. A social and human commitment can be the difference between life and death. It is time to direct focus and responsibility towards the men, you, me and society. Architects and interior architects have long had knowledge of how to design safe public spaces in outdoor environments. But the fact is that only 15% of all reported rapes are committed in outdoor environments. The remaining 85% is done in her own home by a person she has a relationship with or a relative. The field of Architecture and Interior Design should have knowledge of domestic violence and take this into account in their practice.

    "Home is where her horror is" is based on the fact that the most dangerous place for a woman is her own home, this is further explored and shaped in three statements:

    -Line 1: The field of Architecture, Interior Architecture and design needs knowledge of domestic violence and take this into account in their practice.

    -Line 2: In collaboration with material from the organisation "Huskurage", design and create a mobile information site in an apartment building to promote conversations and spontaneous meetings between neighbours, raise awareness about domestic violence and introduce Huskurage.

    -Line 3: Shape a home from the abused woman's perspective on a 1:1 scale during Konstfack's spring exhibition 2023. To raise awareness and inform the visitor through art, spatial design, design, film and performance with the ambition of evoking reaction that leads to action.

    Exploring the Potential for Just Urban Transformations in Light of Eco-Modernist Imaginaries of Sustainability2020In: Urban Planning, E-ISSN 2183-7635, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 204-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches urban ethics through critically examining the production and reproduction of an eco-modern sociotechnical imaginary of sustainable urban development in Sweden, and the conditions and obstacles this poses for a just transformation. We see that notions of ecological modernization re-present problems of urban sustainability in ways that do not challenge the predominant regime, but rather uphold unjust power relations. More particularly, through an approach inspired by critical discourse analysis, we uncover what these problem representations entail, deconstructing what we find as three cornerstones of an eco-modern imaginary that obstruct the emergence of a more ethically-engaged understanding of urban sustainability. The first concerns which scales and system boundaries are constructed as relevant, and how this results in some modes and places of production and consumption being constructed as more efficient—and sustainable—than others. The second cornerstone has to do with what resources and ways of using them (including mediating technologies) are foregrounded and constructed as more important in relation to sustainability than others. The third cornerstone concerns the construction of subjectivities, through which some types of people and practices are put forth as more efficient—and sustainable—than others. Utilizing a critical speculative design approach, we explore a selection of alternative problem representations, and finally discuss these in relation to the possibility of affording a more ethical urban design and planning practice.

    Abstract [en]

    The research question is: "How to develop and apply acoustic artefacts and design method-ologies for improving soundscapes in urban outdoor spaces?" In the project, this research question is limited to one specific type of urban outdoor space – city-park – and to two types of acoustic design artefacts. These are: I. Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds (e.g., the overall site specific sonic atmosphere, sounds from activities, birds and fountains), which creates an improved soundscape. II. Sound-art installations, that creates de-limited auditory sub-spaces within the park/square.

    Acoustic Design Artifacts and Methods for Urban Soundscapes: A Case Study on the Qualitative Dimensions of Sounds2012In: Proceedings of Inter-noise 2012  "Quieting the world's cities".: Proceedings of a meeting held 19-22 August 2012, New York City, New York, USA. / [ed] Burroughs, C, New York, USA: Institute of Noise Control Engineering , 2012, p. 1-12Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Noise is steadily on the rise in urban settings, creating a potential health hazard as well as being a nuisance. In major European cities, noise levels are so high that the majority of urban parks can no longer truly serve as recreational environments, a problem the WHO and the EU are attempting to address. This study explores various strategies that promotethe sustainable development of urban soundscapes at locations meant for rest, recreation, and social interaction. How are people affected by the combined effects of traffic and nature sounds in urban parks? To this end, we adopted a new track – the use of interdisciplinarymethodology – bringing together architectural analysis and artistic experiments, along with psychoacoustic methodology to evaluate aesthetic, emotional, perceptual, and spatial effects. A large-scale case study was conducted at a city park to explore if and how subjects are affected by purposely distributed sounds. The working hypothesis was that it is possible to cancel out traffic noise by affecting aural perceptions using a process known as informational masking. Our long-term objective is to create a scientific foundation for action plans, both pre-emptive and trouble-shooting, targeting parks and other similar public spaces that provide a relaxing environment.

    Acoustic design in Commercial Space2006In: ICSV13 Proceedings, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this paper is to discuss and challenge the visual dominance in architectural thinking, and to raise competence among architects and planners on sound and sound environment issues. To promote a sustainable urban environment,sounds must be integrated in the complexity of urban design and development. Therefore,it is especially important to integrate acoustic and architectural analysis.

    The paper focuses on urban public space as well as indoor public pathways, communication space and semi-public commercial space, e.g. shopping malls, wherereliability on sonic orientation may be crucial. For these kinds of collective spaces, I argue, it is especially important to integrate acoustic and architectural analysis. Their sonic conditions are often loud, blurred, and confusing, with little correspondence between visual and aural perception, and with weak articulations of spatial dimension, distance, borders, and orientation. If not cared for, the result may be increasing sound disturbance, lack of people’s moving through the areas, dangerous differences between day and night use, disorientation for several user groups, and segregation.

    The paper is integrated in the ongoing research project, Transmission, executed by Urban Sound Institute (USIT), financed by Swedish Research Council. Results will hopefully deliver good examples and operative methods to be used by architects, planners and acousticians. The paper is also a result of ongoing projects and research at the acoustic consultancy company Ingemansson Technology AB, Sweden

    Redesign of One Atmosphere: What do you want to hear?2008In: Faire une ambiance / Creating an atomsphere: Communications / Proceedings, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an ongoing research project the design of acoustical atmospheres in large indoor spaces are investigated. The research question is: “How to redesign one sonic atmosphere into a variation of sub-atmospheres in large indoor spaces?” This question is especially valid for spaces such as semi-public commercial spaces (e.g. shopping malls), libraries, airports and communication spaces. The sonic atmosphere in these collective spaces is often loud, blurred and confusing, with little correspondence between visual and aural perception, and with weak articulations of spatial dimension, distance, borders and orientation. Together the different sound sources within these spaces generate a sonic hubbub. Even though such spaces comprise of several types of activities, the sonic atmosphere is the same all over the place.

    Hence, this research project focuses on design of sonic variations of the atmosphere; i.e., site specific sounds that deal with qualities such as communication, comfort, orientation, identity and privacy. The objective is to develop and test an interdisciplinary design methodology, which comprises a number of co-related methods; e.g. acoustic measurements, architectural site analysis, as well as virtual modeling and representation (visual and acoustic) of the space. The main part of the project is the virtual modeling and representation. It connects software that handles architectural 3D-modelling (SketchUp) with the Catt-Acoustic software, used for prediction and auralization.

    The research project also includes a case-study, which comprises proposals for redesign of a congress centre (Scandic Infra City), situated north of Stockholm. The proposals –consisting of architectural elements, sound installations (additions of sounds) as well as acoustical measures – will be demonstrated in a virtual model. The presumed effect is a differentiation in terms of a variety of sonic sub-atmospheres within the congress centre. The methodology developed in the project is intended to function as a tool for design measures of large indoor spaces. It is an interdisciplinary tool in that it supports acousticians as well as architects. The case-study may serve as a pilot model for future applications of redesign of the sonic atmosphere in large indoor spaces.

    This paper is a result of a research project, executed by the acoustic consultancy company ÅF-Ingemansson and the University College of Arts, Crafts & Design (Konstfack), Stockholm. The project has funding from the White’s Foundation for research and ARKUS, a Swedish foundation for the improvement of qualifications within architecture.

    Room acoustic design in open-plan offices 2009In: Proceedings of the Institute of Acoustics Volume 31 Pt.3, St. Albans, United Kingdom: Institute of Acoustics , 2009, Vol. 5, p. 2954-2959Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a Nordic cooperation project the acoustical conditions in open-plan offices was investigated. Measurements have been carried out in five open plan offices accompanied with an inquiry gathering the subjective judgments by the staff. A program for the acoustical measurements was designed specifying how to perform the measurements and which type of parameters to measure. The acoustical parameters included in the measurements are Reverberation time T20, Early Decay Time (EDT), Clarity (C50), Speech transmission index (STI), Speech intelligibility index (SII), Privacy Index (PI), Rate of spatial decay of sound pressure levels per distance doubling (DL2 ), Excess of sound pressure level with respect to a reference curve (DLf), background noise levels in occupied and unoccupied offices. In two of the offices are furbishment program was carried out. Measurements as well as questionnaire were accomplished after refurbishment. The effect on room acoustic parameters DL2 and DLf and on subjective judgments by the staff will be presented in this paper.

    Acoustic Design Artifacts and Methods for Urban Soundscapes2008In: The 15th International Congress on Sound and Vibration In: International Journal of Acoustics & Vibration, 2008, p. 52-52Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The research question is: “How to develop and apply acoustic artifacts and design methodologies for improving soundscapes in urban outdoor spaces?” In the project, this research question is limited to two specific types of urban outdoor spaces – city-park and city-square – and to two types of acoustic design artifacts. These are: I. Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds (e.g., the overall site specific sonic atmosphere, sounds from human activities, birds and fountains), which creates an improved soundscape. II. Sound-art installations, that creates delimited auditory sub-spaces within the park/square. The purpose and method is: 1. To provide two case-studies of artistic soundscape improvement, one in a noise polluted city-park and one in a city-square. The case-studies will serve as models for future applications of the new acoustic design artifacts. 2. To create and validate an innovative acoustic design methodology based on state-of-the-art real-time acoustic simulation tools integrated into the design process. The methodology will be validated in psychoacoustic listening experiments and field studies. 3. To determine the potential of the two acoustic design artifacts (I Dynamic promotion of qualitative site specific sounds, and II Sound-art installations) for providing pleasant and restorative soundscapes, in order to strengthening the social interaction as well as the spatial and aesthetical qualities in noise polluted city parks/squares. The present project beats a new track by combining acoustic design with sound art research, integrating methodologies based on real-time acoustic simulation and application of psychoacoustic methodology for validating simulations and for evaluating perceptual, emotional and behavioural effects on visitors to public open spaces. The ongoing research project, financed by the Swedish Research Council, is executed by the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack), Gösta Ekman Laboratory – Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet and the Interactive Institute, all in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Modelling the Shopping Soundscape2011In: Journal of Sonic Studies, E-ISSN 2212-6252, Vol. 1, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article’s pivotal theme is: “How to compose a site-specific sound-art installation for a commercial space in order to improve conditions, while taking perceptual, social, aesthetical, temporal and spatial criteria into account”

    The interdisciplinary, art-based research approach is derived from the concept of acousmatics, i.e. the process of apprehending any sound, the source of which is invisible. Acousmatic perception concerns the everyday identification process; when lacking visual contact with the sound source, we automatically seek references, such as social (what produces the sound and what is my relation to it?), aesthetical, spatial and temporal (e.g. orientation and demarcation). The acousmatic concept identifies phenomena based on individually, culturally and spatially conditioned experiences.

    Today, a shopping culture dominates urban space. Indoor malls expose us to all types of acousmatically perceived sounds: jingles, signals, music and muzak from public loudspeakers, mobile devices, etc. In this respect, one could claim that the soundscape of the shopping culture embodies an acousmatic environment.

    In 2009, the research and sound-art group Urban Sound Institute (USIT) created a permanent sound installation in a shopping mall (Gallerian) located in downtown Stockholm. This installation serves as a case study for the present paper. The artistic assignment involved the creation of a meeting place without material devices as well as the enhancement of the overall atmosphere. The research objective was to elucidate different qualities of the sound installation in regard to the acousmatics of the shopping mall, promoting discussions on the articulation of sound-space configurations in relation to time and site-specific context, issues on musical-architectural qualities as well as objective, subjective and inter-subjective interrelationships between the experience of the sound-art installation and the experience of the shopping mall soundscape. Other applied, interrelated concepts are metabolic environment and masking- and cutting effects.

    User-Centric Measures of the Perceived Light Qualities of Lighting Products2023In: Emerging Science Journal, ISSN 2610-9182, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 609-628Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, lighting planning is predominantly determined by the need to meet physically measurable requirements that are often based on current lighting standards. However, meeting the minimum technical requirements of the standards is no guarantee for a visually appealing light environment. Instead, requirements based on perceived light qualities also need to be included to achieve better user comfort. Taking perception-based qualities into consideration when creating a light environment is, for many, not an easy task. In addition, a common terminology for perceived light qualities is currently lacking, both in industry and in research. The aim of this paper is, therefore, to explore how perceived light qualities of white light sources can be described when employing user-centric measures. The focus was on the qualities of light colour and diffuse and distinct light since these qualities have a great impact on the visual impression of light. The perception was assessed by applying analytical sensory analysis to lighting products, a method found to be promising in previous work. The methodology is based on analytical measurement by the human senses, which is particularly valuable when developing a general terminology. Since sensory analysis is still quite new to the topic of lighting, the applicability of using the methodology to assess lighting in a real context was also investigated. The results of the studies showed that the perception of light qualities can be described using further concepts in addition to those currently used. For light colour, the concepts of reddish, bluish, yellowish, and greenish light colours proved suitable for providing a richer description of the quality. The concepts of diffuse and distinct light satisfactorily captured variations in light contrast produced by shadows, reflections, and sparkles. In addition, the studies revealed that analytical sensory analysis was applicable for assessing the perception of lighting in a real-world context. The latter means that knowledge gained in the laboratory can be translated into real environments. The user-centric measures investigated in this paper have contributed to the terminology related to perceived light qualities. These can complement the physical measures in lighting planning to promote light environments that are not only energy efficient and meet technical requirements, but also cater for increased user comfort. © 2023 by the authors.

    Psychoacoustic Evaluation as a Tool for Optimization in the Development of an Urban Soundscape Simulator2010In: Proceeding AM '10 Proceedings of the 5th Audio Mostly Conference: A Conference on Interaction with Sound Article No. 3 ACM New York, NY, USA, New York, USA: ACM Digital Library, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will discuss the use of psychoacoustic evaluation as a tool for optimization of the soundscape simulator developed in the Listen project. The listen project is a three-year research project focused around developing a demonstrator, which auralizes the sound environment produced by road and railway traffic. The resolution of the parameter space of the simulator heavily influences the performance of the simulator. The perceptual resolution of the parameter space is investigated and the resolution is adjusted accordingly. The most important parameter is velocity. Adjustments of the resolution of this parameter alone gives a 60% reduction of the usage of memory

    XS architecture versus XL furniture: the scale in-between2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The manipulation of space, materials and issues about shape, color, texture and gravity are common to architecture and furniture. For my degree project, I examine the three-dimensional territories of architecture and furniture. I investigate how the notion of architecture can influence furniture design, or the other way around. Many times, architects cross the boundary from building to furniture design to try and challenge themselves with different scale as same as designer. With my project, I don’t want to cross the border between them, but rather seek the space in-between the two territories, where design and architecture are blended.

    I’m intrigued by particular spaces and things when they can’t be classified exactly; something in-between. It leaves me with curiosity, inspiration and space for imagination. My project can be seen as something in-between because it is hard to define. Whether it is extra small architecture or an extra large piece of furniture, it is somewhere in-between these aspects of scale and function.

    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, I have explored the possibilities of what furniture can look like on a moon base. How they will be made and what resources to use. What will the living conditions be like and why producing on a faraway place is important for future interstellar missions. By combining art and design, I will present a realistic concept that fits the need of the astronauts stationed on the moon and know what one might need when on a moon station.

    Acoustic design of open-plan offices2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The acoustic conditions in open-plan offices were investigated in a Nordic cooperation project. Measurements were carried out in five open-plan offices along with a questionnaire to gather the staff’s subjective judgments.

    A programme for the acoustic measurements was drawn up, specifying how to perform the measurements and which type of parameters to measure.

    The acoustic parameters included are Reverberation time T20, Early decay time (EDT), Clarity (C50), Speech transmission index (STI), Speech intelligibility index (SII), Privacy index (PI), Rate of spatial decay of sound pressure levels per distance doubling (DL2 ), Excess of sound pressure level with respect to a reference curve (DLf), and background noise levels in occupied and unoccupied offices.

    A refurbishment programme was carried out in two of the offices. Measurements were performed after refurbishment and a questionnaire was completed. It is concluded that parameters relating to sound propagation, such as DL2 and DLf, are appropriate for the acoustic evaluation of open-plan spaces.

    A refurbishment programme was carried out in two open-plan offices. It has been shown that DL2 and DLf are sensitive to the acoustic treatment carried out and that they also reflect an improvement in the subjective judgment as regards the acoustic environment in general. Moreover, these parameters can be converted into a (comfort) radius indicating the distance for achievement of a certain reduction of the sound level from a sound source.

    This application could serve as a practical tool for the acoustic planning of open-plan offices.

    Berättelsen, tolkningen, uterummet: en lustgårds-gestaltning på Stadsmuseets innergård2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har i detta examensprojekt gjort ett lustgårds-gestaltningsförslag som förhåller sig till ett reellt uppdrag.

    Uppdraget handlar om att formge Stockholms Stadsmuseums innergård som en samtida -men- sagolik lustgård under två veckor i juni.

    Innergården kommer att utgöra entrén och vara en förlängning av utställningen “Stockholm hjärta Kärlek” som pågår inne på Stadsmuseet under samma tidsperiod. En utställning som belyser historiska kärleksberättelser i staden.

    Utställningen är en del av Stockholms Stads övriga eventsatsning Love 2010. Ett event som går under ledorden; festlig, öppen, delaktig, -ett event där man vill öppna upp staden för dess invånare och turister.

    Innergården ska fungera dels som en “happening-oas” med ett antal fasta och tillfälliga aktiviteter, likaväl som ett kontemplativt rum med en “scenografi sk gestaltning”. Gestaltningens utformning kommer vara min tolkning utav beställarens (Stadsmuseets/Kulturförvaltningens) referenser som är följande;

    Växtlighet, Färgrikedom, Marie Antoinette-hedonism, Alice i Underlandet, det skeva och avskavda...

    Årsta havsbad i mitt hjärta: en renässans för badlivet2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt magisterarbete ”Utveckling Årsta Havsbad” är ett projekt som innefattar undersökning, skissutredning samt en gestaltnings idé kring det publika rummet i Årsta havsbad. Bakgrunden till mitt arbete kommer från att jag är uppväxt varje sommar i Årsta Havsbad vilket ger det en speciell plats i mitt hjärta. Årsta Havsbad har sucessivt åldrats och en upprustning behövs, hur får man in pengar till området?

    Efter efterforskningar hos Haningekommuns statsbyggnadskontor vet jag att en ny detaljplan för området arbetas fram. För att få Årsta Havsbad att blomstra vill jag genom ett undersökande arbete med punkter som: kort historik, status nuläge, brister, åtgärdsbehov, kommersiell idé, skissutredning samt gestaltnings idé kunna presentera ett nytt spännande koncept. Jag tänker visa en modell med volymstudie på en ny restaurang med tillhörande hotellverksamhet samt en ny bastuanläggning. Jag går ner i detalj i gestaltnings idé med den nya bastuanläggningen vid havsbadets strandlinje. Jag har valt att arbeta med betong, glas och trä för att knyta an och förstärka till den omgivande naturen. Bastuanläggningen ska vara en mötesplats såväl en stormig höstkväll, en tidig sommarmorgon som solig vinterdag. Förhoppningsvis kan jag förgylla området både arkitektoniskt och upplevelsemässigt.

    Mitt mål är att bastuanläggningen ska vara av så pass spännande karaktär att det tilltalar ägarna av tomten samt statsbyggnadskontoret så mycket att jag får möjlighet att arbeta vidare med projektet efter examinationen.

    Nine sound-art installations in public space2012In: 41st International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering 2012 (INTER-NOISE 2012): Proceedings of a meeting held 19-22 August 2012, New York City, New York, USA., Red Hook, NY, USA: Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE) , 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aspect of sound as a design element in an architectural context has been discussed for a long time, but there are still today very few permanent projects put into practice. The functional use of acoustics is easily comprehended when utilized to reduce unwanted noise from roads, or when it is perfected to convey speech and music in concert halls. To add sounds to create a sense of space, use it as a quality or defining identity is however still an unexplored field of knowledge. Finding the right balance between creating a quality for the space with dynamics and variety, while still being sustainable over time is challenging. The paper presents theories, methods, findings and results from a large project including nine installations. The project concerns indoor sound installations in large public spaces in Stockholm including acoustic investigations, electro acoustic installations and composition of sound installations for the specific space. The method is both scientific and art-based. The sound design is used as a way of empowering site-specific functions and architectural themes, but also in some cases as a solitary intentional characteristic quality of the space.
