Skanstull Metro and Crossing

December 11, 2018

Artboard 1

This booklet talks of the discovery of an object related to a specific infrastructure, through the unexpected relationship it has with another infrastructure. These texts will allow us to approach the object in different ways and reevaluate our preconceptions regarding it. Its main functionality is working so much in the background that the purpose that it is now being known for, was unintended by the designer and repurposed by a mass of bodies that over time came to find unexpected ways of relating to this object.
The booklet investigates the air pressure equalization shaft in Skanstull metro from a few different concepts related to critical thinking and gender theory and will in the end suggest an architectural design that acknowledges the specific function that the object has come to hold and how to empower that function through acts of care.
