    Digital tools, complex projects and playful engineering2007In: The Structural Engineer, ISSN 1466-5123, Vol. 85, no 13, p. 16-18Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The research project 'Playful Engineering' investigates how digital software tools, such as digital databases, enable innovation in an organization. the project is conducted in collaboration with a number of engineering and science-based companies and carried out within the Innovation Studies Center at Tanaka Business School, Imperial college, London. These digital tools can help engineers and scientists predict the real-world outcomes of a range of alternative solutions and compare them relatively. Digital tools can be used to optimize the processes. The project combines interviewing, observational fieldwork, and document analysis to develop. Visual scheduling packages that take into account multiple streams of information can test various execution strategies with many interdependencies, such as Heathrow Terminal 5, the intergravity quality of digital tools.

    Huset: Beskrivning av en designprocess2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report documents my final thesis at the University of Linköping/ Carl Malmsten CTD, the furniture design programme, in spring 2007.

    The purpose is to give an overview of how I have worked on the basis of my design methodology in its different stages. The report explains the design process, ideas/initiation stage via outlines and 3D modelling to the prototype production.

    The hypothesis has been as follows: " Is it possible to increase the status of the traditional outhouse through form, function and material and to give the user a flexible and unique experience through the use of a modern dry closet, as an alternative to the water closet?"

    The theme is based on the present discourse. The target group is residents/summer residents in a sensitive environment as the archipelago of Stockholm, where nature's limits/excludes the use of today's standard solution, the water closet. With my strong emotional connection to this archipelago I wish to offer a positive solution to the tabooed outhouse in this great nature.

    The aim has been to create an outhouse suitable for prefabrication. For form I have opted for a shape that harmonizes with nature and does not reveal the function of the "house". Through the house's architecture I have attempted to create conditions of contact with the outside nature and remove the negative biases of the house inside.

    Technically, the house is based on a urine separating dry closet. The construction is compatible with other various dry closet systems. This principle of dry closet abides to the environmental needs without access to drainage, water and/or electricity.

    The base construction is Siberian larch (Larix sibirica). The material is naturally rotresistant and a viable alternative to poisonous impregnated woods and other similar methods. In the same spirit a hygenic composite material, Corian, is used as a feat/bench.

    The house is consisting of thirteen prefabricated parts meant for the user to conveniently assemble with the help of only a screwdriver and spanner.

    In my design work process I believe that the form of this construction could be a base for a series of products in various sizes, such as a sauna, a garden shed, or a smaller place to live.

    The full documentation of my project can be found in the project document.

    Architectural Design for Care of the Most Frail and Old in Assisted Living in Sweden.2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a presentation of an 18 months ethnographic research project in an assisted living facility in Sweden. Results showed that the residents’ private bedrooms have increased in importance since the residents stay daily 15 hours or more in these rooms due to frailty and long-term conditions. Swedish laws state that care to older people should be individualized. It is desirable that care to some extent is located in the persons’ private bedrooms in order to be adapted to the frail individual’s needs and abilities. Assisted living in Sweden is legally on par with ordinary housing. From this follows that care should contribute to a full life of the individual. Private bedrooms in assisted living in Sweden are often small and dull. This presentation aims to discuss what architectural qualities the private bedroom should preferably have in order to make possible a meaningful day for the most frail and old people.

    Architecturalspace as a moulding factor of care practices and resident privacy in assisted living2011In: Ageing & Society, ISSN 0144-686X, E-ISSN 1469-1779, Vol. 31, no 6, p. 934-952Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thisarticle presents an analysis of privacy, care practices and architectural spacein assisted living in Sweden. The presented research is a qualitative casestudy. Observations and personal interviews with staff as well as residentswere the major data collection methods. The analysis revealed the elusivenessof the private/public dichotomy; how privacy appeared in public spaces and howprivate spaces became public under certain conditions. Over the day, theresident followed a trajectory of privacy structured by caring activities invarious spaces from which distance and closeness to the staff emerged. Thestudy showed how individualised care practices improved privacy for theresident. Although the architectural conditions constrained the staff in thestudy, they used a number of spatial strategies in order to improve residentprivacy, for instance, in the dining room at meal times or when residents weresubject to intimate care in their private rooms. Access and control aredimensions of privacy that are of relevance to assisted living. Residents’control of access to their private rooms was more successful than their controlof access to the public areas in the unit. Individual care strengthenedresident agency. Staff supported the residents to lead a private life in theassisted living facility.

    Abstract [sv]

    När äldreboenden byggs sitter vi fast i ett gammaldags tänkande präglat av ålderstigna ålderdomshem. Istället borde vi bygga moderna trygghetsboenden där individerna sätts i centrum.

    Individual care and personal space in assisted living in Sweden.2011In: Health and Place, ISSN 1353-8292, E-ISSN 1873-2054, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 50-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a qualitative research project, which explores the relationship between individual care and personal space in assisted living in Sweden. The results were generated from 15-months of observational fieldwork and 22 individual interviews with staff members and ten residents. The research revealed two spatial levels significant to individual care practice: the higher level of architectural spatial configuration and the lower level of spatial micro-conditions. Inflexibility at the first level had to be compensated for by staff strategies at the second. Advantageous conditions at both levels offer a dynamic architectural situation to the staff, in which individual care may arise and thrive.

    Knowledge production in temporary care in architectural space2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Architectural space is a collaborator and knowledge producer in care to older people. Architectural space is also a therapeutic landscape that shapes care in different forms and designs (Conradson, 2005; Curtis et al., 2007). This presentation compares two different architectural designs of temporary care facilities, with the aim of showing how architecture contributed to two different therapeutic landscapes and caring practices although both facilities offered respite care and intermediate care. The analysis builds on organizational theory and Actor-Network Theory (Czarniawska and Hernes, 2005). Among the architectural features that differed were double rooms compared with single rooms, which had an impact on the allocation of rooms to different patients and the allocation of patients to the facilities. Another difference was that the double rooms were located in a permanent elderly care facility, while the singles were in a dedicated facility. These two situations engendered entirely different caring encounters and knowledge about individual patients which emerged from interactions between people, space and materialities. The conclusion from the comparison was that architectural space produces knowledge about caring organizations whereby they learn about themselves, their practices and their patients.

    Rum för individualitet i särskilt boende2012In: Ädres boende - forskningsperspektiv i Norden / [ed] Marianne Abramsson och Catharina Nord, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2012, 1, p. 296-308Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras äldres boendeförhållanden utifrån ett samhälls- och individperspektiv. Äldres boende inkluderar såväl kvarboende i vanliga bostäder som boende i bostäder särskilt avsedda för äldre.

    I boken behandlas fysiska och sociala aspekter på boendet, äldres bostadsmarknad och boendepreferenser. De olika kapitlen exemplifierar olika sätt att studera äldre och deras boendesituation och visar på den variation av områden inom vilka forskning om äldres boende bedrivs. Tillsammans ger de en bred bild av äldres boendesituation och lyfter fram de frågor som särskilt berör äldre, alltifrån de friska och mer rörliga äldre med stora valmöjligheter till de multisjuka äldre som lever längre med sina sjukdomar. Denna heterogenitet ställer stora krav på äldres bostäder och boendemiljöer.Antologin är avsedd att utgöra ett underlag för kurser om äldres boende ur ett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv. Den vänder sig också till aktörer i kommunal produktion av bostäder och omsorg samt andra med intresse för  äldres bostadsfrågor.

    Alla författare är medlemmar i Nordiska nätverket för forskning om äldres boende.

    Two hospitals; two discourses Finnish missionaries and South African apartheid2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents two hospitals in northern Namibia and discusses the architectural design as embedded in two different political discourses which generates entirely different forms. One is Onandjokwe hospital constructed by Finnish missionaries in 1911. The other, Oshakati hospital, inaugurated in 1966, was the first governmental hospital in this part of Namibia as a response to the international critic of apartheid neglect of black people’s health. There are major differences between the hospital design and construction management of the two hospitals. Discursive differences are visible in construction, building material and layout including spatial separation of patients as well as staff.

    The paper also frames the hospitals in the wider politico-geographical process in which South African warfare in the area from 1966 to 1989 is central. The two hospitals became associated to the two different antagonists in the conflict. Oshakati hospital became a part of the South African war machinery, while Onandjokwe became a “terrorist” hospital where wounded guerilla soldiers searched for care. The major South African army base was constructed just adjacent to the Oshakati hospital. Three other governmental hospitals were also constructed in the area during the conflict as a part of the strategy to “win the hearts and minds” of the local people.
