Abstract [en]

A visit to an amusement park has always been a magical experience to me. The escape from ones everyday life it offers is quite unique since it’s packed with so many different types of experiences all at once. Already from afar the visual stimuli sets apart immensely from the rest of the cityscape and coming closer all the sounds from the thrill rides themselves, the emotional and excited outcries of the visitors and the music can easily get anyone’s heart start pumping a little faster. Entering the park the sounds get louder and you start to feel the smells of all the food, popcorn and cotton candy at the same time as one get surrounded by the hustle and bustle of hundreds of other excited people. More importantly I think the experience of an amusement park is a kinesthetic one, where the buildings are very different from the outside world and you are surrounded by spatial structures you can’t find anywhere else. You are also offered to take a ride in these structures and experience the built environment with your whole body and mind. This is the architecture of pleasure.
