|Title: ||STORA JONSHOLMEN - AN ISLAND WITHIN OUR REACH|
|Authors: ||Wimnell, Viggo|
|Abstract: ||This thesis deals with the citizens of Gothenburg’s
access to the sea and coastlines and is all about
making the unreachable available and open for the
public. It can be seen as a response to the shoreline
protection law in Sweden that in practice not always
functioning as it was intended and our unequal
possibilities regarding this.
The municipality owned island of Stora Jonsholmen
in the western part of the city truly enables unique
possibilities. It is close to the city center both in
terms of geographical position and public transport
systems but first of all close enough to unite to the
mainland with a bridge.
Through an architectural investigation and a
number of wood structures this thesis strives to
transform Stora Jonsholmen to a seabathing and
excursion point easy accessible and welcoming to
all. In particular those who otherwise do not reach
archipelago settings like this.
The design approach is focusing on simple and rational
wood based constructions with standardized
materials and well proven methods. The ambition
is to combine them into a well thought whole that
becomes more than each object itself.
The design proposal includes a pedestrian bridge,
changing - and restaurant pavilion, all which are
built in wood and reachable through a wheelchair
accessible walkway loop.|
