Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


Based on the problem of reverse space shortage, as seen in many Danish cemeteries, this project aims to create a basis for a design concept for Sundby Kirkegård. This design concept basis aims to enhance the spatial, social and aesthetic potentials for the cemetery and its users. We have based our fieldwork on the pragmatic design method, enabling us to gather empirical data on the cemetery’s administrative level as well as on a user level. We have applied the following methods: focus group interviews, participant observations and elite interviews. To analyze the cemetery’s potential, we have processed our data through Henri Lefebvre’s conceptual triad as well as Dorthe Jørgensen’s interpretation of aesthetic dimensions.
Based on our analytical findings, we conclude that a design concept basis for the problem of reverse space shortage in Sundby Kirkegård should focus on openness, overview of the surroundings and a feeling of security. Furthermore, we conclude that such a design concept should also be able to facilitate three types of stays at the cemetery, on the basis of users’ needs. Lastly, we conclude that this type of design concept basis must enhance the aesthetic potential of a cemetery by establishing and maintaining a romantic image of the cemetery as well as a space in which users can actively influence the aesthetic expression
