Abstract
My master’s thesis is derived from a personal interest in
Finnish public saunas and the way they relate to the city. In
the first chapter I describe Swedish bathing culture and how
it has been perceived over time. I explore various bathing
cultures around the world and theories concerning thermal
delight, nakedness, intimacy and rituals, among others. The
thesis ends with a design proposal for a public bathhouse in
central Malmö, based upon the results of my investigations.
The chapter ¨ett bad¨ (“a bath”) describes the way in which
the bathhouse should be experienced by a visitor.
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Det här examensarbetet utgår från ett personligt intresse
för den finska allmänna bastun och dess relation till staden.
Första delen av rapporten beskriver den svenska badkulturen
och hur synen på allmänna bad har sett ut över tid. Vidare
undersöks hur andra badkulturer ser ut och teorier om
bland annat termiskt välbehag, nakenhet, intimitet och
det rituella diskuteras. I rapportens senare del redovisas ett
gestaltningsförslag på ett allmänt badhus i centrala Malmö,
baserat på resultatet från studierna. Hur badet är tänkt att
upplevas beskrivs i det sista kapitlet “ett bad”.
