Möllevångstorget : en fallstudie utifrån två platsteorier

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från SLU/Landscape Architecture (until 121231)

Sammanfattning: We are daily using the public space to move throughout the city. The public space is an important part of our city and it’s where a lot of social activities occur and a lot of different events take place. The outdoor environment in the city should offer the residents nice and varying places for staying. In this essay I will try to understand how the physical environment works and how people moves and behave in the public space. The purpose of this assignment is to explore if two theories are useful as tools for understanding a place. Möllevångstorget in Malmö will represent the public space throughout this operation. The case study contains literature studies about the theories and an observation of the square. The square has been observed during two days at different times throughout the day. The results of the case study indicate that weather and other influences from the environment has a great impact on us and our behavior in public space. The results also indicate that there are passages over the square that is more frequently used than others. One significant passage goes straight across the square, in a diagonal. One of the good aspects by using theories to understand a place is that they can help you discover events that you otherwise wouldn’t consider as an happening at all. The interaction between people and physical environment is strong and it’s important for a Landscape Architect to achieve an understanding for this connection.
