  1. 1. House of waste : Implementing Disposable Products In Swedish Architecture

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för Urbana Studier (US)

    Author : Caroline Babamov; [2022]
    Keywords : Sustainable architecture; sweden; disposable products; implementing waste; methods;

    Abstract : It is stated that Sweden is the leading country for the European Union when it comes to recycling and sorting. However, tonnes of waste are still being deposited to be incinerated instead of being reused or recycled. There are two reasons that are mentioned in this thesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Makeshift Poetry? The insolvency of neoliberalism and the solvency of the common(s) : A case study of Raumlabor's makeshift intervention Allmänna Badet in Gothenburg, Sweden

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för Urbana Studier (US)

    Author : Fabricio Di Fausto; [2022]
    Keywords : Urban commons; Common; Neoliberalism; Makeshift urbanism;

    Abstract : This thesis is the result of a set of personal concerns about, on the one hand, how the debates about the modes of expression of the neoliberal regime - particularly in the so-called "urban world" (assuming that there is something outside the "urban”, which is a discussion I did not have place for)- develop and, on the other, of a feeling of inadequacy in relation to how the so-called “urban commons” are conceptualized by many of its promoters. My way of dealing with these concerns assumes that a conceptual review of both phenomena is necessary. READ MORE

The text draws parallells to early aviation pioneers and how a shifted focus from sheer power to manoeuvrability served them their success. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thermoelectric measurements on InAs nanowires with a ratchet-barrier

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik

    Author : Hanna Lundström; [2022]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Efficient extraction of thermal energy from electrons at the micro- and nanoscale is a long-standing scientific goal that could enable novel types of heat engines, heat management, and solar cell applications. Semiconductor nanowires are a promising system for investigating such devices for several reasons, such as their thermoelectric properties, and the potential to be grown in heterostructures with high flexibility.
