Ahlbom, Hampus and Bierfeldt-Liptak, Angelica, 2010. Johanneshov / Gullmarsplan : en nod i framtidens närförort. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



This is a thesis on how to develop and densify
the suburb of Joanneshov south of Stockholm.
Based on Stockholm’s urban history,
Stockholm master plan in 2010, the current
density and sustainability debate, literary
studies, as well as a variety of analysis
of the site it all ends up with a proposal on
Johanneshov. The goals have been worked
out during the work and has resulted in
that we want to extend the inner city street
and linking Johanneshov with surrounding
districts, but we also want to create a well
used, diverse, urban area where the human
is in focus and a district that is easy to read.
Much of the work is devoted to show how
Stockholm has developed historical and to
try to put the future in a context, but also a lot
of work has been put in the information and
the analysis of the site chapter. The plan proposal
is still considered to be the work focus.
Johanneshov is surrounded by Årsta in
the west, Hammarbyhöjden in the east,
Enskede in the south and Södermalm in
the north. Gullmarsplan is a typical 40th
century area with a functionalist structure.
Johanneshov is with Gullmarsplan,
the Globe an the Slaughterhouse
area, an important node for the southern
suburbs as a place for communication,
sports, entertainment and shopping.
Today Nynäsvägen divides the area into
a western and an eastern part. The Gullmarsterminal
which is the south’s largest
public transport node with buses, subways
and trams is now a complex structure with
many different floors for different functions.
The terminal is located as an island in the
traffic structure with poor relations with the
surrounding areas. Aesthetics leave us with
much to be desired. Johanneshov is also
very sparsely populated with houses standing
freely in a lot of parkland with few urban
qualities in which the car takes precedence.
The density and sustainability discussions
we have had resulted in a position for the
dense city. Therefore we read both both
Jane Jacobs and Jan Gehl to get further
guidance throughout the work.
