Living in Rosengård:
the potential of public spaces in a liminal community
Concept: a new background
The public experience in
Rosengård is nearly absent. The ur-
ban space is under-utilized as very
few situations take place in it.
It is also a rigid space meant for
only a definite set of activities,
thus neglecting countless other op-
portunities of actions that could
happen in it. But what happens when
space works as a background for a
more intense urban life?
One of the characteristics to
be observed from modernistic proj-
ects such as Rosengård, is that
very often it appears to have been
planned from above. The problem
with such a perspective is that
even though it works in 2D or 3D,
it neglects the 4th dimension. Time
in architecture can be understood
as how humans experience space. And
acquiring experience through a span
of time is often translated in de-
veloping an identity.
This new background aims to
reinforce the vitality and intensi-
ty of the events that take place in
public space, making them more vis-
ible and versatile, and giving more
people a chance to approach and
apropriate the public zones from
Rosengård, their home.
