Abstract [en]

This work started with the analysis of cultural politics in Sweden within fields of architecture and design by using the example of ArkDes (formerly known as Museum of Architecture), which was under the threat of closing down. An attempt of Sweden's Culture Department to merge two disciplines under a roof of a rather compact museum resulted in spreading of ArkDes resources in many different directions, which made all of museum's activities not convincing enough.

The work developed into a proposal for a new Design Museum, situated on Skeppsholmen island in close proximity to Moderna Museet and Museum of Architecture. As a public building in central Stockholm the proposal treats issues of intervention in an rich cultural and historical environment as well as establishing of new public spaces. As a cultural institution it addresses the ability and need of a museum to reshape and rediscover itself. Defining an abstract museum room through comparison with a traditional gallery space, a shift from an object oriented exhibition towards representation, experiment and performance was suggested
