Abstract [sv]

Projektet är en stad som ligger mellan Umeå och Vasa (Finland), det är den smalaste delen av Bottniska viken med bara ca 60 km öppet hav. Jag ville undersöka vad det fanns för möjligheter med en stad som utnyttjar sitt läge. Så jag planerade en offshore hamnstad som bygger sig själv och sprider sig.

Varför?

60-talets men även samtida megastrukturer planerades ofta för att ge en teknisk lösning på ett visst problem. De här problemen vare sig det är bostadsbrist eller klimatförändring är fortfarande aktuella och lösningarna likaså. Därför ville jag använda min struktur som ett redskap för att testa och reflektera kring dessa idéer för boende. En jurymedlem jämförde mig kritiskt vid en skata som plockat silvret från mina referenser, men det han inte förstod var att jag plockade silvret just för att i min fiktiva värld analysera det. Analysen gjorde jag genom att hitta på invånare som med sinne och själ fick reflektera kring livet i en modul och etc. 

Abstract [en]

The project is a city located between Umeå and Vasa, it is the most narrow part of the Gulf of Bothnia with only 60 km of open waters. I wanted to investigate existing possibilities with a city that exploits its location. So I designed an offshore port city that builds itself and grows.

Why?

The megastructures of the 60’s but also contemporary ones were often planned to give a technical solution to a certain problem. These problems whether it’s housing shortage or climate change are still current and the solutions as well. This is why I wanted to use my structure as a tool to test and reflect about these concepts of living. A member of the jury critically compared me to a magpie that had picked the silver of my references, but what he didn’t understand was that I had picked the silver to analyze it in my fictional world. I made the analysis by imagining inhabitants that through their mind and soul reflected on life in a module and etc.
