Children's place in the city : A study on children's use of public spaces (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay aims at exploring playgrounds with special connection to children and its use ofpublic space. Also how this is affected by the type of housing in which the children live inand how the physical design of the public space affects their use. The work has a qualitativeapproach and an observation has been made at playgrounds relevant to the essay. A planningarchitect at Karlstad municipality was interviewed for insight into how the work withplaygrounds is done, from the municipality's perspective. After exploring the in-depth andout-of-the-range perspective, it appears that both perspectives have the same value in thechildren's play and design of the room, however, the prioritization differs slightly from whatparents value higher than what the municipality chooses to focus on.

Denna uppsats har som mål att undersöka lekplatser med särskild koppling till barn och dessanvändning av det offentliga rummet. Även hur detta påverkas av vilken bostadstyp sombarnen bor i samt hur den fysiska utformningen av det offentliga rummet påverkaranvändandet. Arbetet har en kvalitativ utgångspunkt och observationer har genomförts avlekplatser som är relevanta för uppsatsen. En planarkitekt på Karlstads kommun intervjuadesför insikt i hur arbetet med lekplatser ser ut från kommunens perspektiv. Efter att inifrån- ochutifrånperspektivet studerats närmare visar det sig att båda perspektiven i utgångspunkt harsamma värde i barnens lek och utformning av rummet. Dock skiljer sig prioriteringen någotfrån vad föräldrar värderar högre än det kommunen väljer att prioritera.
