Abstract [en]

Stockholm is an archipelago of islands connected by water that historically has been an important resource for the city and for the industries, which found an easy access for ships and therefore they settled on strategic positions along the edges.

This thesis investigates the topics of water, industrial heritage and edges in the city of Stockholm: these aspects are strong in their individual identity but they also interact in a powerful and interesting way.

This work intervenes where this pattern is still visible -due to the presence of water and industries- but not accessible because it lacks the third element of connection with the city.

The aim is therefore to investigate strategies that increase and reconnect the potential of these aspects that got disconnected through time.

To obtain accessibility and usability, the edge was transformed and redefined to enhance the experience of walking along it.

An analysis was carried out and a proposal was designed for the site of Lövholmen, which has these characteristics -the water, a strong industrial heritage and proximity to the city- that are now disconnected.

The opening of the edge and possibilities of walking will transform and reconnect the site - and the richness in it- with the city of Stockholm.
