Zirk, Marika, 2011. Rosengård - investigating outdoor integration. Second cycle, A2E. Tartu: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



This thesis is foremost my own investigation process of Rosengård´s outdoor space and the process of outdoor integration.

I started my research by forming a literature based theoretical background for my thesis where I tried to gain knowledge on the subject of social integration and its connection to the outdoor space. I also conducted interviews in the Malmö City Planning Office and the Streets and Parks Department in order to find out their perspective and approaches to the public space in Malmö city. It was followed by a case study in Rosengård where, in the process of interviewing different groups in the area and identifying and observing the most popular meeting places, I tried to come to conclusion how social integration supportive the selected meeting places are and what are the main obstacles in the way of outdoor integration in Rosengård.

The outcome of this thesis is a criteria of an integration supportive outdoor place; a list of goals (generated on the basis of the interviews with planners from Malmö City and official documents) for Rosengård´s public space that affect social integration; location and analysis of the most popular meeting places in terms of social integration supportiveness; and a discussion on the outdoor space and its problems that were brought out by the professionals from Malmö City and the ordinary people interviewed in Rosengård.
