    Abstract [en]

    In the Old Town of Stockholm, the main part of a burial complex for the German congregation still exists, constructed at the beginning of the 18th century. Construction work started already in 1716, but work was delayed until mid 1720s, and the building was first completed in 1735, to the design of sculptor Burchardt Precht. The original building complex had the character of a closed courtyard. In the great fire of 1878, however, adjacent parts were destroyed, and the current building represents only one part of the original burial complex.

    Ramble, linger and gaze2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Ramble, linger, and gaze explores a method of architecturalresearch based on narrative dialogue and examines the gardentheories and lite­rary garden representations of ThomasWhately (Observations on Modern gardening 1770) and JosephHeely (Letters on the Beauties of Hagley, Envil, and theLeasowes 1777). The thesis has the form of a narrated dialoguebetween these two writers and the narrator, and it is situatedat Hagley Park, Worchestershire, England. The work does nothave a strictly art-historical aim, but wishes to provide newinsights in the field of archi­tectural research on both amethodological and an historical level. While the dialogicalmode of writing is explored as an hermeneutical research methodfor the field of architec­tural history and theory, thetext in itself discloses a world of reflec­tions and ideasthat surrounded the English landscape garden in the1770’s, and engages, from our present-daypo­si­tion, in a dialogue with that world.

    The beginnings of diverse and opposing phenomena of our timecan be traced to the culture of the 18th century. Ascon­structions of the 18th century, Hagley Park, as wellas Whately and Heely’s texts, lead us closer to thehorizons of the indi­viduals and the society that producedit. But the landscape gar­den and the texts, as they standto­day, are also sites for alter­nativeepistemological models. Through its fictional character, thelandscape garden provides a possibility to move withininterpretative layers and spiralling horizons. It celebrates apoint of view on the move, both literally (physically) andimagi­natively. The dissertation demonstrates thepossibilities of arti­culating this spatio-temporalphenomenon within the field of architectural research.

    The Architectural Metaphor: Textual Models in Spatial Construction2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation concerns the concept of model withinarchitecture, and elaborates particular uses in this field,where modelling is a heuristic process aiming at invention anddiscovery. Methodologically, this is made by introducing thecomparative concepts of metaphor and narrative. Thedissertation presents a‘projective theory ofmodels’, describing cases in which it is utilized both inthe production of and in applied models.

    A projective model has as a purpose to develop concepts andformulate structures, which otherwise would be unarticulated.Here the representative status is critical, and when treated asa material object, the reductivity of the model may bequestioned. This is explored through the correlative conceptsof metaphor and narrative. Theory of metaphor is used toexamine the nature of the transferences between the model andits reference. Narrative is used as a tool to elaborate thesetransferences, and in acquiring a certain organization of agiven space. The theoretical framework is developed bydiscussing relevant works by Nelson Goodman, regarding thetheory of representational systems and notationality, MaxBlack, regarding the relation between scientific models andmetaphor, Paul Ricoeur, regarding theory of metaphor andnarrativity, and Michel de Certeau, regarding narrativity andthe relationship between the city and textual structures.

    The concept of model falls into two categories,consecutively studied within the dissertation: First, models inarchitectural production. This covers all means ofrepresentation, including drawing, three dimensional models andtext, that is, everything at hand for an architect to model aconstruction during its process of becoming. Second, modelswithin built matter. This covers images and ornamentation ofsurfaces, told and written narratives about a space, andemergent social behaviour in relation to its physicalenvironment. Such use of models can be described as‘spatial tropes’, defining particular functionsperformed in space. The processes of producing and using modelsin architecture show similar characteristics. Informed by boththe theoretical elaboration and the investigations of the twocategoriesin which models are at work, a number of keyconcepts operative in the modelling process arearticulated.

    Private and public digital domestic spaces2001In: International journal of human-computer studies, ISSN 1071-5819, E-ISSN 1095-9300, Vol. 54, no 5, p. 753-778Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the introduction of information and communication technologies into our homes and the different physical and communicative expressions this implies for our living spaces the concepts of being private and of being public become crucial. In this paper, we introduce A Pattern Language, developed by Christopher Alexander in the 1970s, in order to handle these problems systematically. The presentation formally follows Alexander's structure in five cases all related to practical experiments on being private and public at home. We start with a number of concrete user situations related to human-computer interaction. Social and communicative phenomena or possibilities end up in novel design patterns at the interface between an architectural and a technological perspective. The novel patterns presented are primarily based on experiences from practical work on the development of a conceptual dwelling of the future, comHOME, designed and constructed as a full-scale model of a flat. By creating different zones for video-mediated communication, comZONES, the user can control the private and public digital areas varying in time and space. The novel patterns refer to two separate levels. On the first level a specific pattern, called PRIVATE AND PUBLIC DIGITAL SPACES, is designed as a conceptual floor plan layout. This plan distributes private and public digital spaces for video-mediated communication over the flat. At a second level, four patterns show the integration of the specific comZONES aiming at solving four specific problems with video-mediated communication at home. Our intention is to describe the application of design patterns as a method for analysing and solving novel problems encountered with the introduction of information and communication technologies in our homes. The video-mediated set-ups are not dealt with in depth. They serve mainly as designs that make it possible to apply the design patterns.

    User study of video-mediated communication in the domestic environment with intellectually disabled persons2003In: International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction, ISSN 1044-7318, E-ISSN 1532-7590, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 87-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A user study of video-mediated communication (VMC) involving six persons with mild intellectual disability is presented. It took place at comHOME, a full-scale model of an apartment of the future, showing innovative architectural and technical designs with regard to the integration of VMC into the domestic environment. Two different zones for VMC, comZONES, in the apartment, were tested, the videoTORSO (a large-screen set-tip for informal everyday,communication) and the workPLACE (a place for professional work tasks). The: purpose of the study was to get a deeper understanding of how people use these comZONES. The final discussion points out that the comZONES seem to be interpreted correctly and to function aptly in relation to the participants, in the study. An assumed explanation is that spatial recognition is a very fundamental human function and thus less significant with regard to the mental capacity of the individual.

    Slänten i Tanto2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The slope is a building containing two different layers, one is more private and protected in the form of a pre-school, and the other is more public in the form of dance halls, restaurant and a park deck on the roof. The location is chosen because it also contains two distinct layers in different height levels. The lower level is a traffic separated bike and pedestrian path where you without crossing a single street can reach all the way to medborgarplatsen, the second level is about 5 meters above the lower one, in the form of the busy Ringvägen. The concept then is based on synchronizing the site conditions with the programand create an interesting dynamic between the two really independent program components. The building is also designed to enable and enhance the entrance to Tanto, both via Zinkens väg and Ringvägen.

    Abstract [en]

    The location of the project takes place in northern Stockholm, near Solvalla travbana, where a new district is planned with primary housing with five floors. The land indicated us lies on a wooded mountain and will lie on the edge of the forest. The school’s programs in square meters are larger than the site, which is therefore one of the main problems in the project. The school will accommodate 240 students, from pre-school, pre-school class to low-school children. The building has a frame that combines pillar and beam of glued wood with floor tile made of cross-glued wood, following a system developed by Martinsson. At the site, blasting has been minimized but performed to provide good contact with the street in the north-east. The bottom particle board is made of concrete, as well as supporting walls. The roof consists of sedum grass roofs and terraces of wood. The top roof hovering slightly above with a slight slope that opens to the farm and the forest. The facades have long glass panels that are slightly inside a wooden panel hovering a little outside, and bends in long horizontal bands like sound curves around the building.

    Residents’ Environmentally Friendly Attitudes and Practices: – Motivation and Barriers in Different Forms Types of Tenure2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Thise paper presents an empirical study of actual households’ daily habits  and of their stated willingness for to adopt pro-environmental practices, relative to differ-ent forms of tenure. Economic incentives, linked to home-ownership, are shown to be significant in determining actions, as is perceived control. Well–-off homeowners have the highest frequency of pro-environmental behaviour, as measured in the study. Still, they cause the heaviest environmental impact, due to their larger dwellings and abundant car use. Households in multifamily housing have fewer incentives for and lower frequencies of pro-environmental habits, but cause less environmental impact due to their generally lower consumption. The results imply that the selection of target groups and the development of environmental policies need to be discussed assessed in relation to different life  styles and patterns of consumption.

    Spelar kvalitet någon roll för priset?: en studie av bostadsrättsköp i Storstockholm2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to show that architectural quality in dwellings has an impact on purchase prices. This is performed through an empirical investigation of 178 purchases of flats in co-operative housing associations within Greater Stockholm. The studied dwellings are all in multifamily housing.

    The concept ’architectural quality’ is discussed and defined to match the purpose of the investigation. The qualities of the dwellings have been rated according to fixed criteria. Price data are asking prices from real estate brokers’ advertisements of sales.

    Investigation and analyses have been carried out by three different methods:

    • Statistical analysis in the form of multivariable regressions analysis, which required quantified measures of quality.
    • Enquiry to the buyers of the flats in the sample, on their evaluation of the qualities of the dwelling and the actual purchase price.
    • Interviews with a small sample of buyers.

    Starting point for the analyses was a model for residential choice based upon location, dwelling area and payment to the co-operative housing association and the assumption that differences in quality were of great importance for the final decision.

    The regression analyses did show that overall differences in architectural quality had significant impact on price in the sample of study objects. The enquiry showed that residents evaluated architectural quality in common with the architect’s criteria, but that they also did evaluate many other forms of quality in a dwelling before buying a flat. The balancing of different qualities differed between buyers.

    Another result of the enquiry was data of purchase prices. Asking prices were a good estimation of market values, but they did differ substantially from purchase price in some cases.

    The interviews increased the understanding of how different categories of buyers see and evaluate architectural quality. They also described which qualities in a dwelling that attract buyers in their residential choice, As a whole the study has shown:

    - It is possible to rate architectural quality in quantitative terms

    - Residents and architects have many criteria in common in their evaluation of architectural quality

    - In the dwellings of the studied sample architectural quality had an impact on price amounting to 10-15 %
