Abstract [sv]

Idén till mitt examensarbete började växa fram förra året när jag studerade ett utbytesår i den amerikanska västkuststaden Seattle. Staden växer och förtätas just nu i en rask takt och de flesta nya byggnader uppförs i en komplex kontext av befintliga byggnader och relationer. De flesta tilläggen skapar idag stora kontraster i stadsbilden.

Syftet med mitt examensarbete har varit att utforska hur man för en befintlig byggnad från dåtid till nutid och att skapa en meningsfull dialog mellan gammalt och nytt. Jag har sett det befintliga som en källa till inspiration och kunskap och mitt förslag består av tillägg som både förstärker de rumsliga kvalitéerna i det befintliga och förlänga atmosfären in i det nya. 

Abstract [en]

The idea for my thesis began to emerge last year when I was studying as an exchange student in the US, in west coast city Seattle. The city is currently growing and densifying in a rapid pace and most of the new buildings are being built in existing environments. The vast majority is creating big contrasts in the city environment.

The aim of my thesis project has been to carry an existing building from the past into the present and to create a meaningful dialogue between old and new. I have seen the existing as a source of inspiration and knowledge, and my proposal consists of interventions that aim to both strengthen the spatial qualities of the existing, and to extend the atmosphere into my proposed extension. My work also aims to add new ways of experiencing the existing building, to create a new, stronger ensemble of spaces.
