Abstract [en]

This case study will give an example of how to work together in the building process with a joint ambition. The role of the architect will be in focus and will be described in the perspective of developing the future role. In this project a housing area with 200 apartments was planned to be built near Helsingborg in the south of Sweden by Helsingborgshem, the municipal housing firm. The actors involved started up the process with several meetings and with a precise goal concerning the costs of producing each square meter. The involved actors such as: The local authorities, the architects, the caretaker, the construction firm and representatives for the future tenants worked together in the early stages at workshops and meetings. In these early discussions the knowledge and experience from each part were used in favour for the planning process. The role of the architect in this process is interesting because of the possibilities to develop the future role. When involving the user in the building process several skills are required. The pedagogical role as well as good communication skills can be useful. Interpretation is also needed when the experts are using all the difficult terms when formulating the plans for the product. To be more responsible of the economical frames as well as keeping up the collaborative work is a challenge. More time and efforts in the early stages can be an investment with good results. Using the knowledge from the group in a safe atmosphere may also have a positive effect on the final product. The chance to create the "right product" with a higher constructability can also give good economical effects. The winners are the actors involved, the end-users and future tenants because of the possibilities to lower the rent. This case study will describe the actors involved, their common goal and their way of working together. It will also discuss the role of the architect and the possibilities to learn from this case study. The attitudes towards the different roles are shaped during the time of education. In which direction is the Swedish architectural education going? Does it support the collaborative process found in this case study?
