Abstract (Summary)
This report shows the inquiry, sketches and the final result of our suggestion for a reconstruction of an existing school building to a science center.BackgroundThe science center, Framtidsmuseet i Dalarna, has during a long period of time been in the need of a bigger local, in order to expand. A suitable local not far from the mall Kupolen is available. The local is in present day used as a school for higher education, and has not seen any major changes since it was built in the late seventies. Therefore the house needs a great exterior and interior reconstruction to suite the museums needs.ImplementationBy compiling the future proprietors demands and ambitions, with the information we gathered about suitable interior environment to stimulate children’s learning and how to make buildings accessible and usable to everyone regardless of there physical limitations, has a building- and a local program been completed. These programs have then been transformed via sketches into a complete proposal for the new local.ResultsThe proposal includes all of the museums activities, but also a union with Kulturcentrum Asken and room for The University of Dalarna. The proposal is adjusted to fit children’s needs for a light and tranquil indoor climate, which makes it easier for them to learn the knowledges that the different activates offer. The museum has also been designed with proper passages and minimal level differences etcetera to suit all visitors. In order to make a sensational and spectacular building, the final proposal includes relatively big changes of the existing building, which will draw more visitors and at the same time make the museum an obvious target for all pupils in Dalarna.DiscussionsFinally to be able to study different angles of approach and solutions, the proposal has been compared with an architects proposal.
