Abstract (Swedish)
When time changes, new conditions set the opportunities for the city to grow. We can remember what has been through simple means, capture what has distinguish the place before and develop to something that conform today’s needs. It can be areas that haven’t been open for public in many years and has been left as gaps in the urban fabric. This is a study in re-purposing such a place, an area with the former use as an infantry regiment in Visby at Gotland.

The project is divided into an analysis and a design proposal part. The analysis method sociotope mapping has been used to secure and lift the specific qualities of this site. The method is a combination of interviews made with the areas everyday users followed by observations.... (More)

The project is divided into an analysis and a design proposal part. The analysis method sociotope mapping has been used to secure and lift the specific qualities of this site. The method is a combination of interviews made with the areas everyday users followed by observations. Sociotope mapping is a method where focus lays upon users and their impressions of a site. This method has set the starting point for the design proposal where the areas military and cultural history together with the landscapes character have been considered. Focus lies on an effective land-use by taking advantage of existing structures. Also, to vitalize the area by introducing a variety of housing in a well-established area during daytime, integrate the area with other parts of the city and to propose an accessible area for people to stay, visit and get by. A study how impressions of a site can be used and understood, how physical structures and imprints from the past can be enhanced and refined to the demands of today. (Less)
