Abstract [en]

This project consists of and is driven forwards by three forces:

PART ONE is the Story Behind, the environmental and political part with problems like waste management, over-consumption, and extreme lack of student housing in the Stockholm region in spite of the politicians’ promises.

SECOND PART is the Collecting of Waste that are at hand, showing how much MATERIALS, still fully usable, we just discard of and the investigation of these - with a little creativity and innovation finding strategies to use them in a NEW WAY in the context of architecture, questioning the perception of second-hand materials.

AND THIRDLY - reaction! The practical part, a full-scale built proposal with which I tie together this project. As a response to our consumption-oriented society, I collected whatever thrown away material at hand right here on the architecture school. With this material and the strategies discovered, I constructed a small student dwelling on a forgotten and unused space on the architecture school’s roof, making a statement towards the disappointing development of the student housing situation.

Abstract [sv]

Detta projekt består av och drivs framåt av tre krafter:

DEL ETT - historien bakom, den politiska delen med fokus på miljö, såsom avfallshantering, överkonsumtion, samt den extrema bristen på studentbostäder i Stockholmsregionen trots politikernas löften.

ANDRA DELEN - insamlande av avfallsmaterial till hands, som visar hur mycket MATERIAL (fortfarande fullt användbart) som vi slängs, samt undersökningen av dessa. Med lite kreativitet och innovation hitta strategier för att använda materialen på ett nytt sätt inom ramen för arkitektur. Ett ifrågasättande av uppfattningen av begagnade material.

DEL TRE - reaktion! Den praktiska delen, ett fullskaligt byggt förslag som sammanfattar projektet. Som en respons på vårt konsumtionsstyrda samhälle samlade jag in slängda objekt till hands på arkitekturskolan. Med detta material och med de upptäckta strategierna konstruerade jag en liten studentbostad på en bortglömd och oanvänd plats på arkitekturskolans tak - ett statement mot den negativa situationen vad gäller studentboende i Stockholm.
