I tid och rum : en upplevelseanalys av Kärnan

Historical Archaeology
Abstract
In 2005 Gunhild Eriksdotter published Behind The Facades in which she analyses the ways of approaching historical buildings in archaeology. Eriksdotter emphasizes that the archaeology of buildings is in dire need of renewal videlicet the traditional outlook on buildings as two-dimensional objects need to change. She develops a method of analysing the spatial dimensions in a three-dimensional world. By fusing theories and methods in excavating archaeology and architecture, she is able to give us a new way of approaching buildings. Her method includes the analysing of a buildings material, spatiality and use. By applying the results in a digital model of the building one is able to analyse how it was used.

In 2005 Gunhild Eriksdotter published Behind The Facades in which she analyses the ways of approaching historical buildings in archaeology. Eriksdotter emphasizes that the archaeology of buildings is in dire need of renewal videlicet the traditional outlook on buildings as two-dimensional objects need to change. She develops a method of analysing the spatial dimensions in a three-dimensional world. By fusing theories and methods in excavating archaeology and architecture, she is able to give us a new way of approaching buildings. Her method includes the analysing of a buildings material, spatiality and use. By applying the results in a digital model of the building one is able to analyse how it was used. This is done by populating the building with different characters. If the roll play in the building is to take place it is very important that the building is reconstructed threedimensionally and in such a way that it does not inhibit the experience of the spatiality. It is my intent to try her method on level three in the building known as Kärnan, Helsingborg. I will emphasize on the experience of the spatial relations within digital models. This means that I will analyse what is needed to reconstruct a digital model of the building and how the construction is done. I will also look at different visualisation techniques and the usage of multiple actors within the digital reconstruction. The results show that the method brings us closer to the function and usage of the historical

building. It also inclines that the reconstruction of a digital model depends highly upon the interpretations of the analysed historical material. When it comes to the creation of a digital model the results show that an expert is to prefer in most cases. The experience within the model is determined by the way it is presented. One would think that the more technical and cooler ways of presentation would be to prefer. But the results show that the experience obtained within the model is not determined by the way it is presented for the user. Instead it

is the relation to the material that determines the result of the experience. The usage of this type of method on historical buildings is of importance. Of course it will not give exact results of how historical buildings were used but it will bring us closer to their function and usage. (Less)
