Abstract [en]

In the modern world and society, in which the pace and tempo of life seems to increase, external influences get both more intense and numerous, demands get tougher and stress has become an increasing problem. Strangely it also seems as if it has become increasingly challenging to find time and space to take a break, to disconnect, relax, reflect and meet your own needs of a time out. However, despite how modern and urban people are, the need for contemplation and stillness seems to be ever so real to many of us. So, when in need of time out, to spend time all by ourselves, time for stillness and reflection, time to contemplate, where to do we go, to what kind of rooms? Are there such rooms in our everyday environment and if so, what are they like? This work was inspired by how rooms for contemplation have lately become a more frequent phenomenon in public environments such as universities and hospitals, however due to insufficiencies in design they do not quite fulfill their main purpose. In order to study where people turn to for stillness and contemplation, I have used interviews, room analysis and literature studies. Equally I have been searching to find what factors characterize and constitute the contemplative mood. Through this I have reached a number of interesting observations of both the needs and the opinions contrasting the otherwise very intense and hectic everyday atmosphere. From this I have been working to reach a relevant proposal for what a truly contemplative room could be like. In the design part of the essay these observations turned from words into pictures. Sketches were created aiming to illustrate how previous results and insights can be translated into contemplative spaces and rooms. The factors identified can of course be combined in numerous ways, making many variations. However, this work presents one example of how a room for contemplation and “time out” could be designed in our modern and urban world.
