The results show that the place has many of the qualities required to be considered a good public space according to the theories used in this thesis. Still the place today is mainly
used as a passage, a place people walk through without stopping. The main problem with the space seems to be that it is located close to a highway. Conclusions drawn after working with the material is that the location doesn't live up to the ambitions the municipality of Trelleborg have for the space. The way the space appears today makes it hard to reach the ambitions to create a space where people wants to spend time. A second conclusion is that the space could be seen as functional based on the way it is used today, since it is not desolate. (Less)
