    Organising of Space: about a orphanage in Tanzania2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In my BA project, I travelled to Tanzania with a MFS stipend and experienced humanitarian architecture up close - by following architectural group Asant Collective´s project in Tanzania: a new Children Centre for a small non-governmental organization called ECONEF. 

    I have worked with social questions / responsibilities regarding our role as interior architects in developing countries - often feeling like a anthropologist.

    In my design part, I have re-drawed the layout for ECONEF´s planned new orphanage after a analyse of the existing orphanage, culture and traditions.

    ‘Nobody puts Baby in a corner’: A critical response to apartments and furniture designed based on modernistic ideals.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My study challenges the status quo that seems to exist in the design of modern apartments, which is heavily influenced by the modernistic movement that flourished in early 20th century. Modernists strived to create a just and equal society, by challenging the social order and the traditional hierarchical system. The architecture of the time reflected these ideals and ultimately resulted in simplistic and repetitive designs that often formed box like interiors with standardised furniture. Consequently, these designs are detached from the individualism of the inhabitants, forcing people to sit, sleep, dine and socialise in a predefined space in a prescribed manner.

    My project is an artistic intervention to the BOX - the soulless interior of modern apartments. My aim is to explore and imagine alternative ways of existing within the box and push the boundaries of how we conduct daily activities in the living space.

    Baking the kitchen: An exploration of the aesthetic and pedagogical qualities of baking in a historical context2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, through a vernacular understanding of design, I seek the role of baking as a method to physically and visually connect us to a more integrated and origin-aware relationship to food. The project is positioned in relation to today’s lack of knowledge of food production as well as the lack of communal spaces to exchange this knowledge in an urban context. By researching the Swedish rural folk interior and the kitchen of the welfare state, I explore the aesthetics of baking and its needs. I see the potential in how aesthetics can act as a motivational force and threshold reducer. This project is an investigation of how to reduce the distance between agriculture and the city with a focus on baking through engaging architecture.

    The Final Cut: Transformations of laser-cut textile surfaces for placemaking2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My project explores the possibilities of shaping space using lightweight textile-based elements. The focus is on the transformation of surface patterns into three-dimensional forms, using analogue parametric design with laser-cut beds as a main testbed. The result is a smorgasbord of prototypes: spatial configurations that divide and define space. Each design is a permeable three-dimensional form that projects a unique pattern of shadow and light. The basis of my project comes from an initial investigation of Uppsala public libraries’ needs for flexible solutions. The libraries have housed many civic activities that I have experienced in recent years since moving to Uppsala in 2018. With their requirement of multiple types of use, I propose using fabric infrastructure as configurable room dividers. I use discarded textile (used carpets, fabric remnants) as the starting point for each prototype. The material itself imposes certain restrictions on the work. Each new piece of fabric acquired a problem waiting for a solution. In this sense, the finished prototype constitutes a solved puzzle. One key objective is to create designs that are flexible while still being robust enough to be portable. Another key objective is to create inviting and organic designs. While I used laser cutters to cut the fabric into precise patterns, I allowed gravity and light to create an imperfect and organic end-result. However, the outcome of my experimental exploration is a system and a technique for making use of discarded textile materials to create atmospheres and spaces.

    Det sjungande torget: Identitet, möten och funktion på Bredängs torg2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Stockholm växer och behovet av väl utformade offentliga rum är stort. Här sker de vardagliga mötena mellan olika befolkningsgrupper och det är viktigt att skapa rum som känns tillgängliga och välkomnande för alla invånare, oavsett ålder, kön, kultur etc. Ambitionen med mitt examenprojekt är att skapa en känsla av omsorg kring min valda plats, Bredängs torg, och på så sätt förstärka intrycket av att den är till för invånarna. 

    I projektet har jag genomgående låtit mig inspireras av inedningsarkitekten Beata Heumans bok Every Room Should Sing. Som namnet antyder handlar boken om inomhusmiljöer, vilka jag i detta projekt har valt att överföra till en exteriör miljö. Centrala tankar hos Heuman är bl a att små överraskande detaljer i designen kan hjälpa betraktaren att bilda en personlig relation till platsen, samt att en dynamisk interiör kräver kontraster.

    Projektet har mynnat ut i en serie tillägg och bearbetning av befintliga element på platsen. Med Heuman som ledstjärna har jag arbetat fram ett möbleringsförslag som bland annat involverar en kombinerad stol/cykelställ med runda former i kontrast till raka linjer i den omkringliggande miljön. I projektet tillför jag också en bildserie i en gångpassage med motiv som knyter an till platsen. Bilderna är tänkta att fungera som en igenkänningsmarkör och som en överraskande färgklick i den annars ganska sterila betongmiljön. Via en enkät har boende i Bredäng fått vara med och bestämma vad bilderna ska föreställa. Genom att inkludera målgruppen vill jag åstadkomma en offentlig installation som bidrar till att förtydliga Bredängs lokala identitet.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the need for better and more accurate methods of recording and analyzing the visual experience of architectural space. PERCIFAL (Perceptive Spatial Analysis of Colour and Light) is an ongoing project that aims at developing a method of analysis that can capture coherent spatial experiences of colour and light. The starting point for PERCIFAL is a method of visual evaluation of space and light, developed by Professor Anders Liljefors at the former department of architectural lighting at KTH Architecture. PERCIFAL is based on direct visual observations and the recording of these observations by verbal-semantic descriptions using a questionnaire. It has been developed primarily as an educational tool, but we see in it potential for a design tool for professionals as well as for an analytical method for research. The first test results, conducted in Sweden, Norway and Finland, show that the method has significant pedagogical merits and that it allows interesting comparisons between physical measurements and visual experiences of space, light and colour.

    Urban nature center: The development of educational spaces and how they can interplay with nature in an urban context2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Educational spaces that interact with nature can give children in the city a start in experiencing the nature close to them. First hand experiences have the potential to influence and inspire children to continue learning about the environment that they are a part of.

    The Urban Nature Center aims to bring the concept of Nature School into the urban setting of Tantolunden in Stockholm city in order to invite the public to experience the urban nature. It creates a link to further explore the nature areas surrounding the city.

    By developing educational spaces that interplay with nature, focus has been on the relationship between inside and outside and on creating different levels of openness. Providing spaces for teaching both in groups and individually. The interior spaces either focus inwards on the activity taking place or outwards towards the nearby environment by filtering the view between inside and outside.

    I want to become a barn2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is a new order on the farm, the animals are long since gone, new people have moved in. On a farm in Bergslagen, which is also my home, a barn (or lada in Swedish) stands empty. The original function of this barn, to house a small number of cows and their feed, has been lost. Since moving to the farm, we have asked ourselves how it should be used.  It is here the project I Want to Become a Barn plays out. In my degree project, I explore how to have a dia-logue with the building and how the barn can be approached by starting from its current condition.  The work process is guided by a care for that which has been, where the new has to adapt to the old. The history of the place, the ravages of time, and the forces of gravity are elementary starting points. The project proposes that the building can be made habitable and meet basic everyday needs. When does it stop being a stable for animals and when does it start to become a home for humans?

    A floor, four walls and a ceiling – this space that we take for granted has not always been a feature for humans.

    In my Degree project, I learn what a space has meant for people. I learn what existed before we built a room for ourselves, what came after, and what was a role of a fireplace in this process.

    I do so to be build my own relationship with a space of four walls to be able to work with such a space as a context for my work.

    Design for unknown futures2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The need for humanity to lessen its impact on the ecologies we’re a part of is becoming increasingly clear.  While there are many technically advanced solutions in the makings, one of the most straightforward ones is to simply use the objects we surround ourselves with longer. We can make them more durable and repairable but what happens when the needs of the user changes? How can we really know what needs the future will bring?

    I’m searching for a design approach that embraces this unknown. A process where the designer doesn’t have to be the enlightened figure that knows everything in advance. Because if we accept the complexity of the social and ecological reality where our objects end up, we never can be. I want to make objects that can grow and change with the user. A fertile soil for future needs.

    I’ve used the design process of three different objects to develop these thoughts. 

    An open ended loom for the weaver Vega Määttä Siltberg, a table made with designer Julie Amira that is disassemblable without tools, and lastly a piece of furniture that changes function without moving parts.

    The goal of this project is not to produce a solution to a specific problem or to create an object that communicates an idea as well as possible. Rather it’s the reverse. By the process of designing and building I’ve been able to explore the questions that my project is composed of. The thoughts expressed here come from this experience.

    Inredningsarkitektens samtal med historien.: En undersökning och metodutveckling om hur rum kan gestaltas utifrån arkitektur från andra tider.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ”Inredningsarkitektens samtal med historien” är en berättelse om trapphusen på Katedralskolan i Uppsala. Förslaget föreslår hur inredningsarkitekter kan gestalta utifrån befintlig arkitektur från andra tider som samtalar med både historia och samtid. Detta genom att jämföra och analysera två trapphus byggda olika tider på Katedralskolan i Uppsala med kroppsliga interaktioner, skisser och gipsmodeller. Utifrån analyserna transformerar projektet ett av Katedralskolans trapphus egenskaper, atmosfär och kroppslig rörelse till rumsliga element, fragment och rumslig gestaltning. Transformationerna är ingen ombyggnation av trapphusen jag undersöker utan är fristående rumslig gestaltning som fungerar som ett verktyg att berätta om historien. 

    Min slutsats är att sinnliga och kroppsliga erfarenheter av rum ger oss en djupare förståelse av hur rum är gestaltade som ger inredningsarkitekter bredare kunskaper om att gestalta utifrån byggnaders befintliga tillstånd med omsorg för historien. Skissa, modellera, ljussätta, gjuta av rumsliga element och uttryck och transformera kroppsliga interaktioner med trapphusen har varit en metod och exempel på hur jag med mina sinnen, tolkningar och transformationer kan närma mig rumslig identitet och omsorg. Genom att förstärka byggnaders identitet och gestalta utifrån rums historiska kontext belyser projektet betydelsen av inredningsarkitektens kunskaper om att förvalta befintliga byggnader och öka trivseln i våra offentliga rum.

    Abstract [sv]

    I mitt projekt utvecklar jag konstnärliga designmetoder för att studera, samla in och berätta om kvinnohistoria och interiörhistoria, inspirerat av feministiska och queerteoretiska perspektiv på temporalitet, identitet, historia, material och berättande. Mitt examensarbete utgår från min 90-åriga mormors berättelser om sina barndomsminnen av hennes två mormödrar ‘Momma’ och ‘Mormor’ och hur det var att spendera somrarna på deras gård, Fridhem. I formgivning av bordet Fridhem, tavlan Systrar på gungbräda i trädgården, installationen Flytande fragment och installationen av dessa under Konstfacks Vårutställning 2021 tillsammans med ljudverket Minnen från Momma och Mormors Fridhem, manifesterar jag studierna och berättelsen.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ett pågående rum är formen på hur man kan prata om rum som breddar normativa ideér om rummets egenskaper. Det är ett rum där arkitekten inte gör ett självförverkligande, där hen snarare fungerar som en hjälpande hand än den som pekar. Det är ett rum där vi är medvetna om varandra men samtidigt kan tillåta oss vara oss själva. Det är ett rum som ställer krav, krav som ska gynna alla. Ett pågående rum är ett sätt att se på arkitektur där vi har ett cirkulärt tänkande och morgondagen lyser in genom fönstret.

    Abstract [sv]

    I mötet mellan luft, kropp och vatten uppstår någonting. Vattnets omfamning av kroppen skapar ett avbrott från omgivningen och endast nuet är närvarande. Tiden saktar ner, kroppen saktar ner. En paus uppstår, en paus från de ständigt gnagande kraven. 

    I mitt projekt har jag undersökt och förvaltat kvalitéerna som jag upplever finns i kroppens möte med vatten. Som före detta tävlingssimmare tar jag avstamp i samhällets tankar om hygien och renlighet, och rör mig i de kommunala badhusen där ritualen av renlighet utförs i gränslandet mellan offentligt och privat. Jag undersöker vattnet som omfamnar kroppen och arkitekturen som omsluter vattnet och försöker genom min praktik att förvalta dess kvalitéer.

    Meetings through transformation: - An investigation of the spatial qualities and social structures in parts of Stockholm’s meatpacking district, Slakthusområdet2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Slakthusområdet, which translates into Stockholm’s meatpacking district, is one of the few remaining industrial areas in Stockholm and it is going through some major changes within the next ten years as a part of the new “Söderstaden 2030”. A lot of both history and a certain kind of industrial architecture will get lost when reprogramming and reconstructing the area. 

    In my thesis project, I am studying parts of the built environment of Slakthusområdet. Through the use of different mapping techniques I am dissecting and fragmenting the site and revealing its many layers of time and stories with the intention of learning from a certain kind of industrial architecture that is disappering in our society. I also want to comment on the urban planning of Stockholm today and why I believe places like Slakthusområdet is valuable to a city like Stockholm.

    Gallery Wall2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För vissa är graffiti konst, för andra är det ett tecken på förlorad kontroll. För mig är det ett redskap för att mötas.

     Jag har delat in mitt examensarbete i två delar. Den första behandlar visionen jag baserat mitt arbete på. Den andra handlar om design och placering av de fysiska paviljongerna.

     I den första delen har jag utgått ifrån ett scenario där den fysiska arkitekturen återspeglas i ett virtuellt gallerisystem jag get namnet Gallery Wall. Denna del finns bara på idébasis men har varit utgångspunkt då jag formgivit mina paviljonger.

     Jag har skapat fem olika paviljongstyper som tillsammans på ett teoretiskt plan utgör en och samma virtuella huvudform.

    I, eller rättare sagt på, paviljongerna ges tillfälle för vem som helst att måla och presenteras sin gatukonst.

     Min förhoppning är att mina paviljongtyper skall inspirera andra att bygga egna varianter som alla är del av Gallery Wall. Systemet är tänkt att vara open source.

     Jag vill också med mitt arbete ifrågasätta och belysa vad som får visas upp och värdesätts inom konstvärlden och i samhället.

     Mitt examensarbete är baserat på en dröm som förhoppningsvis i framtiden blir verklighet.

    Shhharing Spaces: An investigation of the public library of Östersund in relation to the 2019 Swedish National Strategy for Libraries2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish national strategy for libraries, published in 2019 by the National Library of Sweden on behalf of the Government, with the utmost goal to strengthen democracy, describes a vision of a library for all in 2030.

    Historically, the library has been quiet rooms with collections of books. Something that does not support today’s nor future needs of a library according to the national strategy. 

    Is it possible to combine the vision of an open space with the old-time quiet library?

    Library of Östersund is a public library that has outgrown its premises from the 1950s, but due to savings, plans for a new library have been put on hold.

    I have examined how changes to the interior can support the aim to reach the goals of the Swedish national library strategy. Above all, to attract new groups without scaring away the visitors of today, or yesterday.

    The emphasis lies on how the spatial design can encourage activity versus focus, the importance of forms, flows and meetings of different materials, and how the relationship between architecture and body is formed from a diversity of perspectives.

    Vue och sinne: Ett platsspecifikt projekt, där plats för kontemplation i det offentliga är i fokus2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag ser vi hur parker i staden ter sig mer som urbana rum. I dessa rum ligger fokus på gångtrafikanter, cyklister, lek och sport. Urbaniseringen leder också till att vi förlorar den ”naturliga” grönskan i staden. Parken har stor potential att fungera som en förlängning av hemmet, för boende i närområdet. När vi bor allt mindre och mitt i staden, kan parken vara en plats där man söker kraft och stillhet. Enligt mig är det inte många parker i stadsdelen Vasastan, som bjuder in till privata sfärer som ger besökaren utrymme för detta. Det finns ett stort folkhälsoproblem i Stockholms stad som är den psykiska ohälsan. Detta innefattar depressionsdiganoser och ångestproblematik. Jag tror att man genom form kan skapa nya rum i parken som ger målgruppen som lider av dessa problem ett utrymme att ta sig tid för kontemplation. Särskilt då forskning tyder på att de gröna områdena i stadenfyller funktioner såsom förbättrad koncentrationsförmåga och sänkta stressnivåer.

    I mitt examensprojekt undersöker jag en park i Stockholm, i stadsdelen Norrutull som heter Bellevueparken. Där tittar jag på hur man kan arbeta med befintlig struktur och natur, och hur nya tillägg kan utveckla en del av parken till en plats för kontemplation. Detta är relevant då dessa nya rumsligheter, skulle kunna verka för ett bättre psykiskt välmående för individer bosatta mitt i staden.

    Mitt designförslag innefattar ett undersökande av hur form på dessa platser ofta är robusta och rejäla. Därför utforskar jag vad en tunnare estetik kan göra med känsligheten till objekten och materialen, på offentliga platser. Mitt tillvägagångssätt innefattar alltifrån platsbesök, till scanning av platsens kvalitéer, samt skiss och utforskande på plats i fullskala. Ljus, kontrasterande material, siktlinjer och privat sfär är några av utforskandets fokuspunkter.

    Solid - Void2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The central theme of my degree project is the concept of solid and void, with each piece embodying a unique idea. The void element represents a container that can be filled with individual thoughts and perceptions. My goal is to create interactive objects that can be viewed from different perspectives, allowing for a personalised experience based on one’s expectations, experiences, and perceptions. I believe that the point of view from which we look at things (how we look at things) might be more important than what kind of thing it is. Through my work, I aim to induce people to change their perspectives on their daily objects and surroundings. 

    This thesis report is the story of my graduation work, which I worked on from December 2022 to May 2023. It contains the intentions and aims I was trying to convey through my work, the process of working on it, the difficulties I encountered along the way, and my concerns. I wrote this thesis report as a kind of working notebook or end-of-day diary, writing honestly about what I felt and learned during the process.

    Sculpting the emotional (magic) space2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I create spaces, that are presented as sets (scenographies), by working with storytelling, colour, geometry and transitions. By exploring tangible and abstract elements, I compose different atmospheres. Atmosphere is the central aesthetic category in my work, and creating an emotional experience through space is my intention.

    The spaces are inspired by a magic realist novel. I transpose the text into images, to then sculpt spaces with geometry, colour and light. I write new stories and descriptions about these spaces as I imagine the atmospheres to be experienced.

    Transitions are fundamental to my project: the transition of Latin-American references within magic realism and emotional architecture, to my own context at this moment in Sweden; the transition from text to space (and vice versa); and the transitions between spaces in my composition. These are my apparatuses in sculpting the emotional and magic space.

    Building Pieces: examensrapport2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    BUILDING PIECES

    I want the children to explore spatiality both high and low, in both open and closed structures. By reading the literature, comparing playhouses and huts, visiting preschools and following my own child, I have come to the conclusion that I do not want to create a given space, but instead design modules so the children can create their own spatiality to include stimulating their own creativity. There are too many things that we adult control and determine how it should be after what we think that children want, but with Building Pieces they can create their own space and build their own unique piece. This will give them not only creativity, activity and quality in playing but also an opportunity to think and learn about creating different spaces and architectural phenomenon. They can build on their own, with friends or adults. Nothing is right or wrong what they are building the most important thing is that they have the choice and opportunity to do so.

    Urban kiosk: Ett förslag till Stockholms framtida kiosker2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I mitt examensarbete undersöker jag den fristående kiosken som byggnad, kioskens historia i Stockholm och hur den ser ut i Stockholms innerstad idag. Kiosken är en byggnad som besitter en stor potential både som plats i staden och som fristående byggnad med ofta väl exponerade fasader i alla väderstreck och placerade så att många människor passerar dem. I mitt arbete  undersöker jag denna viktiga plats och tittar på hur byggnaden kan ta tillvara  den potential som den besitter. Genom att kartlägga stadens kiosker, dess material, utformningar och påfrestningar så har jag skapat mig en bild av det som är en kiosk i Stockholm idag. Stockholms stad har höga tankar om stadens kiosker och anser bland annat att dom bör främja innovation, något som inte speglas i verkligheten.  

    Genom mitt undersökande så har jag kommit fram till att framtidens kiosk behöver en ny typ av arkitektur, en som klarar av snabba omställningar, ombyggnader, nya menyer samtidigt som den bör visa på nytänkande. Stora krav på en liten byggnad. Det har lett mig till att undersöka 3d-printerns teknik i stor skala. En teknik som möjliggör de ovannämnda kraven som jag anser att vi kan ställa på en kiosk. Genom att designa moduler som kan bytas ut och malas ner igen så kan kiosken skapa sitt eget kretslopp av arkitektur. 

    I mitt designförslag så har jag formgivit en kiosk med arkitektoniska element som känns bekanta och lätta att ta till sig. Genom att ta tillvara på möjligheten som kiosken ger med sitt fria uttryck så har jag laborerat med 3d-print i stor skala. Genom att designa med nya, hållbara material, applicerat på en design som man lätt kan ta till sig, så hoppas jag kunna vända blickarna mot kiosken som byggnadskategori och dess möjlighet som plattform för nya ideér.

    Grime on a Mountain of Haze: Imprecise Instruments of Vague Spaces2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project explores vagueness in space and how it can help us train and sharpen our senses as designers and architects to adapt to the realities of scarcity and how to make less-extractive processes of creating space. Using ephemeral but recurring phenomena such as air flow, reflections, refractions of light and moist in architecture as inspiration, I seek to make everyday-spaces, such as underneath a wash basin, a radiator or behind a door, interesting again. With methods inspired by the land art movement to find new ways of seeing interior spaces, I use attentiveness and the idea to not destroy or disturb to observe already existing spaces. The project seeks to tell a story of neglected beauty in forgotten spaces and translating them into (im)material architectural spatial installations. 

    I hope this project can bring an understanding that protecting and appreciating what we already have is probably more sustainable than constantly changing and readjusting spaces to fit our wants and what we think we need. To train our senses and get new ideas of beauty and function in already existing interior spaces, brings what is out of focus into the light. This might be a way to partly slow down the industry of interiors and redirect how we work as architects and designers to understand that everything doesn’t need to change, but if we seek change, we can do it by immaterial phenomena, such as light through the interstices, that will occur as long as there is life.

    Building Block Creations2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “Help me to carry!” “Okay! Where should it be?” “Just follow me!”E, soon to be 5 years old, lifts a building block at one end, while her father takes the other end and lets her show him where it should be placed. It is carefully put edge to edge next to another building block. Kid brother F, 2.5 years old, rolls a small toy car on another block.Building Block creations is a project with the aim to encourage spatial investigations through play. The project result are prototypes of four kinds of sprawled, large scale building blocks that can be combined: they can be rotated, set abreast or stacked on top of each other. As in architecture, several pieces together create a whole.

    The idea of Building Block Creations is to use building blocks as a pedagogical tool to encourage ideas and dialogue about spatiality and objects. By playing with the building blocks you relate objects to each other, challenge your view of what is possible to balance and, if you feel the need, use your imagination to create a definition of what you have built.

    DIGITERIORS & The emotional being: A speculation on how existing interiors can be sustainably influenced in a digital dimension through Augmented Reality and how our emotions can inform these influences2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We human beings are facing a dilemma, as we live in a time and place where we inevitably have to become more stationary in our way of living, as well as make more careful and calculated decisions about what type of products we consume and how. As we are increasingly confined to our homes, our homes are having to act host to all of the activities that we used to leave our home for, such as work, exercise, leisure and more. The need for interior modification is larger than ever, yet the need is conflicted by the threat that product consumption is paying to our climate.

    This project has explored the technology of augmented reality as an alternative method for interior adaptation, personalisation and creation in existing environments, through a concept called DIGITERIORS. By introducing flexible and digital layers to our static and analog interiors, the concept enables a new interactive dimension of interiors that can be atmospherically optimised and customised for a specific activity, need or mood, innumerable times without having to consume interior products or material. On a larger scale, this project speculates on sustainable and alternative ways of influencing our interiors in the future, using technologies that are already developed, but not yet fully utilised.

    Painting to see the room

    Drill a small, almost invisible hole in the center of the canvas and see the room through it.

     

    Grapefruit: A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono

     

     

    In this project I have designed and built a set of analog tools that can be used to explore a space.  I have been looking into how the objects make us see new qualities in the architecture and give us understandings about our relationship to the space. 

     

    The elements  I have worked with are frames, mirrors and tubes that in different ways cut, shift, create distances or access in the space.

     

     

    I am sharing my findings through illustrations, inspired by both comics and architecture representation.

    With the drawings I want to stimulate the debate and create an awareness on how we experience spaces and architecture.

    Grand Voyages:: A ticket to somewhere please!2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A journey begins with an act. 

    To move one's body/mind from one place to another.

    The planning of where, when and how to get there. 

    Expectations of what to come, before, during and after.

    In my thesis I turn to the notions we encounter when experiencing space. Through the bodies movement we shift our perspectives, leaning our eyes on surroundings of change, we mediate what is perceived. Telling us the story of where we have been and where we are heading to. 

    The fragile surface of the lace cloth covering the sunlight shine in my grandmothers kitchen window had to me an unfamiliar texture and its yellowing white colour brought a time from another generation. Drinking weak silver tea and sitting next to this curtain formed a tactile memory of constant. I don´t remember any other details from those days, other than the taste of the tea and the atmosphere created by the lace. When, during a journey in unknown lands several years after, I again saw this lace covering a window I remembered not the situation nor the tea but a sort of comfort. A memory of carrying both my past and present. 

    The memory of space is created both in the past and the present but also when we leave, as we remember and recall it. How do we interpret what is a part of our past, present and future? And where is the real/unreal memory of space created? 

    To investigate these notions I placed my self in a sort of somewhere! On the border between reality? and utopia. In an constant journey of bodies from familiar to unknown. In a place where perception of space pass through movement and time.

    In an journey of memory and imagination.

    In a cruise boat.

    A story of a passage - scenes of patterns, figures and fragments2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project explores two-dimensional patterns through a spatial interior, 

    specifically focusing on the interaction and dimensionality within the pattern. The aim is to create a composition through placement of these elements using layering, color and depths of material to achive atmospherics patterns in a three-dimensional space. Through an intuitively process, the fragments of the pattern are considering as a puzzle, embracing the play between order and disorder, the two-dimensional and three-dimensional. 

    The context for this work is the public space of the platform room of a subway station, where the room serves as a canvas to apply these spatial patterns, to create a dialogue between patterns, space and its occupants.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents experiences from a two-day teaching workshop where first year students in architecture meet with first year students in textile design for an assignment on building structures with textile, soil and plants designing for indoor gardening with the aim of inspiring for more sustainable lifestyles. The background is a research project on textile architecture with the objective of exploring this new field and to establish a platform for long-term collaboration between the disciplines of architecture and textile design. The paper addresses pedagogical challenges in the meeting between first-years students of different disciplines and traditions, but also in the meeting between research and undergraduate teaching. The students produced creative results but had difficulties in exploring the full complexity of the task. An evaluative discussion is based on observations, photo documentation, notes during group discussions, follow-up questionnaires among the students and reflections among involved researchers.

    The Broken Tail On a Lizard2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project I have investigated how a set of rules can be applied to a particular sight and program. Inspired by the rules of the ’divine ‘proportion I applied its system of repetition and algorithm in a particular site and created a bridge with a diverse program beyond the simple intention of bridging two ends.

    This project is a way of approaching the complexity of designing an architectural space. It is a helping guide on how, through a system I could evaluate and pay attention to spatial qualities.

    My system is based on the divine proportion and its parts. I have broken up the divine rectangle and used the parts to create a structure that connects the tow ends on this specific sight. In this project I have been investigating and testing how a sett of rules can be applied on a sight to crate proportion, composition and rhythm. The classic rule that is about movement in space, giving function to the space, the relation to the human body and a space being more diverse. These rules are the basics of the foundation of or field.

    The metaphor I have used is the broken tail of a lizard, that from the point of where it brakes takes another shape and creates a new structure, overlapping and connecting the old and the new. I have called this ”the nature’s broken proportions”. By that I mean, when the symmetry in the creation in the new tail is broken or reduced, it no longer is a continuation of the lizard’s body in that time and space, but an individually separated continuity with its own symmetry. It exist in parallel and as an extension of its past. The system I have created have helped me to define the boundaries and provided a clear structure of my design. 

    This project is to me about connecting my intuition on how life is withe how I design space. The structure and boundaries provided by this system of ”broken proportions”, has given me the tools to evaluate the quality of the spaces I created. I found freedom in my abstraction of this system by breaking up the logarithmic spiral, which is about continuity. This is a designing tool I used to create my bridge.

    My work is an illustration of a subjective idea, of breaking the continuity in space and time. Through using this system I could evaluate qualities like dimension, proportion, composition, rhythm, direction, sectioning and levels. All these quality’s given by this system, creates an abstract interpretation about my personal view of movement of this bridge.

    NEUTRAL GREY – AN ABSTRACTION?2009In: Proceedings of the 11th Congress of the International Colour Association, AIC 2009 / [ed] AIC 2009 Editorial Committee:Dianne Smith, Margaret A. Pope, Nick Harkness, Paul Green-Armytage, Sydney: The Colour Society of Australia, Inc. September 2009, Sydney, Australia. , 2009, p. 1-4Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents part of the research project Greyness and spatial experience. Its main objective is to discuss the concept of neutral grey and to investigate the preconditions for perceiving neutral grey colours in different situations. Neutral grey is defined as having similarity only to black and white, not to the chromatic elementary colours.

    Greyish colour samples have been observed with different backgrounds and in different light. One of these series is presented in detail in the paper, the conclusions from others are considered in the discussion, together with relevant literature. Greyish colours are seldom perceived as neutral, but rather tend to get a perceived hue, which depends on the observation situation. Inherent neutral grey colours are not found in nature. In production of materials and artefacts no tolerance level can assure a total lack of hue.

    In conclusion we suggest that neutral grey should be considered as an abstraction, its unique but in practice unobtainable quality lying in its absolute lack of hue and chromaticness.
