Abstract [en]

"Stortorg" is an architectural reflection on the intrinsic politics of public space, revolving around the history, present and future of Stortorget in Katrineholm. The aim of the project has been to investigate an architectural context from a wide range of perspectives—historical, political, discursive, experiental—exploring the relation between architecture and the public realm, and to enter into a dialogue with this situation in the form of an architectural project that draws on the knowledge of the place. The project seeks to problematize notions of novelty and innovation, the role of imagery and appearance, and the reigning paradigm of the living room as model for public space. In the project I am solely working with what is there, and through processes of editing, copying, cultivating the existing, I seek to end up with a proposal that escapes the idea of innovation and newness, or to an idealization of urbanity, but that rather focuses on the relational aspects of the site; of movement, of a sense of expanse, of expanding the space beyond a singular interiority.
