Abstract (Swedish)
Under hösten 2016 utlystes en sluten arkitekttävling om ett nytt kulturhus Bergsjön.
Bergsjön är en stadsdel i utkanten av nord-östra Göteborg. Många upplever området som isolerat från resten staden både fysiskt och socialt. Bebyggelsen, som i stort sett är helt intakt från 60-och 70-talet, speglar de dåvarande idealen och bjuder på såväl möjligheter som utmaningar. Samtidigt ligger stadsdelen i mellanstaden där mycket av Göteborgs framtida utveckling kommer ske och Bergsjön kan därför beskrivas som en stadsdel som står inför stor förändring.
I tävlingsprogrammet beskrivs kulturhuset som ”Göteborgs nya kulturhus” som inte bara ska sätta Bergsjön utan även staden på den arkitektoniska kartan. Samtidigt beskrivs samma byggnad på andra... (More)

I tävlingsprogrammet beskrivs kulturhuset som ”Göteborgs nya kulturhus” som inte bara ska sätta Bergsjön utan även staden på den arkitektoniska kartan. Samtidigt beskrivs samma byggnad på andra sidor i tävlingsprogrammet som framförallt en lokal mötesplats.
I mitt projekt har jag velat undersöka vad ett kulturhus kan vara just här. Vad ett sådant hus kan ha för syfte, mening och framförallt hur det uttrycker sig arkitektoniskt. Genom studier av andra kulturhus har jag dragit lärdomar som jag sedan använt mig av i min designprocess.
Jag har valt att undersöka hur min arkitektur förhåller sig till omgivningen framför relationen mellan de inneboende aktiviteterna. Projektet har kommit att präglas av platsens förutsättningar och problem. I slutet av rapporten presenteras mitt gestaltningsförslag. (Less)
Abstract
During the fall in 2016 the city of Gothenburg announced a competition for a new house of culture located in Bergsjön.
Bergsjön is a district in the north east part of the city. A lot of people view the area as isolated from the rest of the city, both physically and socially. The near intact development from the 60s and 70s, reflect the ideals of the time which means both great possibilities and challenges.
The district is also a part of the so called “mellanstaden”, a part of the city where most of the development of Gothenburg is going to take place. This means that Bergsjön is facing some big changes.
In the brief for the competition the house is being described in two different ways. On one hand as a institution for the entire city,... (More)
During the fall in 2016 the city of Gothenburg announced a competition for a new house of culture located in Bergsjön.
Bergsjön is a district in the north east part of the city. A lot of people view the area as isolated from the rest of the city, both physically and socially. The near intact development from the 60s and 70s, reflect the ideals of the time which means both great possibilities and challenges.
The district is also a part of the so called “mellanstaden”, a part of the city where most of the development of Gothenburg is going to take place. This means that Bergsjön is facing some big changes.
In the brief for the competition the house is being described in two different ways. On one hand as a institution for the entire city, with the expectation that the house will function as a landmark, and be a prominent piece of architecture. On the other hand as a building that primarily should act as an important meeting place with in the local area.
I wanted to reflect on what meaning a house of culture has in this context. What impact could a building like this have on the neighborhood? What messages are communicated through these kind of projects and how does that reflect in the architecture?
I have approached these questions by using other houses of culture as references. The conclusions I have made have then functioned as a tool in my design process.
The aim for the project is to focus on the relationship between the house and the environment rather than the activities within the building. The conditions of the site have therefore been the most significant factor for the outcome of the project. The design proposal is presented in the end of the report. (Less)
