The physical space meaning for archive outreach : A case study of the conditions for a new archive center (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master’s thesis was to investigate the new archive center Stadsarkivet Liljeholmskajen in Stockholm. The aim for this case study was to research the center's archival outreach based on aspects such as physical space, architecture, design and location. The purpose of the case study was to investigate how concepts such as accessibility, inclusion, visibility and participation appear in the physical space and are promoted through architecture, design and location. Furthermore, it was examined whether the goals and visions for the project had been realized and how well they were in line with reality. The central concepts of inclusion, accessibility, visibility, participation and realization have been thematised and used to answer the questions. The case study material has been based on three different methods that constituted triangulation in the form of document studies of project plans and work material, two interviews with key persons in the project and observations that were carried out on several occasions in the archive center. Several theoretical starting points have framed the study from different perspectives and concepts used for analysis and interpretation. The theoretical perspectives are based on disciplines such as archival science, museum science and architectural science The results have highlighted that accessibility and inclusion which are an approach that the archive center has embraced as a business idea and which has been manifested architecturally and in the physical space. Another result has shown that the users' perspective has been in focus through out the project, although not everything has been realized, there are aspects that have been designed based on the users needs and wishes. This study has investigated a new archive center that is modern and forward-looking for its time, both as an idea and building for an archive. Furthermore, this case study can be of importance for other archives that seek inspiration and insight into what conditions are needed to achieve an innovative and successful business with the help of architectural and spatial aspects.
