Adaptive Reuse : A Case Study in Ulvsunda

University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

Abstract:

Ulvsunda is a former industrial area in Stockholm facing a politically uncertain future. The intention of the project is to explore what developing it under these very circumstances would imply. How do you design for uncertain futures?For time-limited use? In a first phase I looked at the densification of a block of land, and in a second phase the development of specific buildings. The response I propose are buildings general in their interior structure and at the same time very specific in their urban expression. Individual spaces are auctioned out repetitively over time according to a concept called ‘Solids’, responding to the demands on the area over time.
