Sammanfattning

The poster presents a work in progress. The study aims at understanding the aesthetics and ethics of architectural transformation and adaptive reuse through Scandinavian examples of “barn conversions”. This study is an examination of a rather unique branch of architectural field: the adaptive reuse of former secondary buildings, uthus, as residential buildings in contemporary Scandinavia. As marginal as it might seem, the “barn conversion” is a globally significant home decoration and refurbishment trend, which also has impacts on contemporary housing architecture. The focus is on the various mediations and transformations of tradition and continuity, of heritage and contemporary architecture. Furthermore, we seek to understand the aesthetics and ethics of the reuse and account for different kinds of handling ‘pastness’ and history. The methodological approach is experimental. This is an ethnological exploration combined with architectural analysis. By using qualitative methods, we conduct site and building analysis and deep, semi-structured interviews with both, the architects and the owners of the selected reuse projects.
