JOBBIS - En ny lekplats på Universeum
I did my degree project together with Universeum AB. The project had the work title: children’s world and the aim were to give children between 3-8 years old a place that was especially made for them. With their interests and needs in mind the area should trigger play but also learning through a well planned pedagogical environment. I did this project because I thought this was an excellent opportunity to really practise my new gained skills I had learned during my two years in CCD (Child Culture Design). It also gave me the opportunity to actually see how well my knowledge was working when it was put to the test, and I did learn a lot from this. Together with a crew of 6 people I developed and designed the area. I used the computer to sketch/design and make drawings for the carpenter. As the deadline for this project was too tight to do any of my usual design process I was forced not to do any analysis. I only used my intuition and earlier knowledge that I have gained during my time at CCD. It worked out really well and the result was Jobbis. What I did in the project was to help out with the overall design and illustrations. My main focus was to design the city area, containing lab, building site and food store. I created a wall and room divider called Triangeln (the Triangle) that separated the three areas in the city and formed calm and noise-free zone where the children can play and explore. It has been an amazing experience to work with Jobbis and even greater to see it now when it stands finished! Even though I can see that I did too much for such a short time frame I am happy with the end result.
