Constructing an archive

Abstract [en]

The archive is now entering a new era; the physical architecture documents are successively digitalized for the new world. Due to this, the physical archive is given a new role to play. What is that role? 

The aim of my thesis project was to construct an architecture institution where the architecture archive were the driving force; both in terms of the program as well as informing my method.                                   

As an homage to the archive, I decided to make parts of the archive visual in the actual building. This have been done through close studies of different pieces of architecture from the Swedish architecture history. The examples stretch from a medieval church in Uppland, a royal residence in Mariefred from 1537 to a functionalist residential building in Stockholm. These architecture pieces have further been analyzed and transformed into fragments through factors such as spacial impact, perception, functions and geometrical proportions.They have throughout the project dictated the design in order to link the archive to the archive building. As a result of my method of assembling fragments, the traces of Swedish architecture history is visual in the entire building.

Abstract [sv]

Arkivet går nu in i en ny era; de fysiska arkitekturdokumenten blir successivt digitaliserade för den nya världen. På grund av detta ges det fysiska arkivet en ny roll att spela. Vad innefattar den rollen? Syftet med mitt examensarbete var att konstruera en arkitekturinstitution där arkitekturarkivet var den drivande kraften i fråga om programmet, gestaltning samt min metod.

Som en hyllning till arkivet beslutade jag att göra delar av arkivet visuella i själva byggnaden. Detta har skett genom nära studier av olika exempel från den svenska arkitekturhistorien. Exemplen sträcker sig från en medeltida kyrka i Uppland, en kunglig residens i Mariefred från 1537 till ett funkishus i Stockholm. Dessa verk har analyserats och omvandlats till fragment genom faktorer såsom spacial effekt, perception, funktioner och geometriska proportioner. De har under hela projektet dikterat designen för att länka arkivet till arkivbyggnaden. Som ett resultat av min metod att arbeta utifrån fragment, syns spåren av svenska arkitekturhistorien i hela byggnaden.
