Presented by students from the master’s program Child Culture Design together with two classes from Ytterbyskolan. Prologue and epilogue by Carl-Johan Skogh, Director of Programme and Annelies Vaneycken, Phd student in design.
For young people, where social interaction is fundamental for the development of identity and for finding a role in the society, the design of a built environment is of particular importance.
The spring of 2017 the master students of Child Culture Design explored the settings of Björkås in Ytterby in collaboration with the housing company Förbo. With a framing of participatory design, cross-generational activities and outdoor play the students set up a temporary office in Björkås. Together with two classes from the school of Ytterby they conducted a set of workshops and investigations that informed the design work.
The aim was to research the making of an activity park by commission from Förbo. But the project turned out to include much more. How do we support and engage in a community? What responsibility and agency does the different stakeholders actually have? #105daywithbjorkas
