Abstract [sv]

Frågeställning

Hur översätter man och representerar ett lands kultur genom arkitektur? 

Går det att skapa en mer lättillgänglig arkitektur genom vår metod och ingång?

Ingång/Metod

Genom en folklig ingång studera landets matkultur/traditioner kring mat samt tillhörande miljöer lära sig om landet.

Tillämpning

Finska institutet är en kulturinstitution avsedd att främja finsk kultur och sprida denna i Sverige. Den kultur som representeras idag kan kompletteras med en mer direkt och upplevelsebaserad approach. Genom att ta del av landets okända matkultur skapas en enkel ingång för gemene man att få en första upplevelse utav landet. 

Resultatet

En finsk restaurang, bar och utställningslokal i Finska institutets bottenvåning i centrala Stockholm samt en bok om finsk matkultur och dess arkitektur. Lokalerna i det ritade förslaget är gestaltade utifrån en upplevelsebaserad metod som handlar om att studera folkliga traditioner och karaktärsdrag, med avstamp i landets matkultur. I egenskap av arkitekter ger vi dessa teman och ledord dess materialitet, rumslighet och atmosfär.

Question formulation

How do one interpret and represent a countrys’ culture through architecture? Is it possible to create a more easily accessible architecture through our method and starting point?

Starting point/Method

Through a vernacular starting point study the countrys  food culture and traditions and their environments learn more about the country.

Application

The Finnish Institute is a cultural institution working and promoting Finnish culture in Sweden. The culture exhibited at the institute today could be complemented with a more direct and experiential approach. By taking part of the countrys’ fairly unknown food culture an easy access is created for everyone to get a first experience of the country.

Result

A Finnish restaurant, bar and event space and gallery at the ground floor of the Finnish Institutes house in central Stockholm. The rooms are configured by using a experiential method to investigate vernacular traditions and characteristics, with starting point in the Finnish food culture. As architects we are giving these rooms themes which configures their materiality, spatiality and atmosphere.
