Hidden functions of urban environment : A study on backyard-buildings occurance within listed historic buildings in Visby (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is focused on secondary buildings in urban backyards which belong to the multifaceted history of cities and of the selection of buildings for juridical protection of public cultural heritage care in Visby, Sweden.In Visby there are 269 settled properties, many of these contain secondary buildings, which were supplied with a long lasting juridical protection (3 kap. KML) between the 1990`s and the beginning of 21st century. The material in this study consists of documents of Beslut om byggnadsminne by the regional cultural heritage authority and interviews concerning the selection of protected buildings in Visby.Findings show that buildings from the early 20th century such as garages and laundry houses are underrepresented categories covered by protection. While most buildings from the 18th century and older were protected. More so, simple and small buildings such as woodsheds and privies were less likely to be protected than workshops, stables and warehouses. This selection differs from present authoritative principles. The results were analyzed by using Holmberg’s method concerning historization.The study highlights the valuation of secondary buildings in urban lots in the work of selection of lots and buildings for juridical protection and discusses causes behind the distribution of protection between different building categories. The study discusses possible motives for complementation of the selection for protected notable buildings. Finally it presents suggestions on efforts on different levels in the authoritative system, to strengthen the protection of secondary urban buildings.The suggestions are complementation of juridical protected buildings, categorization of backyard-buildings, decent practice of available laws and stimulate attitudes towards backyard-buildings as a cultural resource to bridge the gap between laws and exploitation.
