25% seminar: Maryam Fanni, design

PhD Seminar

The research project "The City as Image - an inquiry in visual coordination on street level" focuses on local centers in Stockholm with the urban renewal project in Hökarängen in 2011-2014 as the main study object, together with the nearby centers Bandhagen and Bagarmossen that later implemented the same signage policy.

The study will be looking at the aestheticization of the local center, and the objectives and methods of property owners for making changes, such as unification of shopfronts and signage.

One central discussion evolves around claims of authenticity, in this particular case alluding to the 50s and Swedish welfare project People's home (Folkhemmet), problematizing its implications and consequences in the making of place.

Discussant: Jennifer Mack, Lecturer, KTH.

The seminar will be held in English.
