Research

My research has mainly been concerned with space experiences and how the architect tries to find the best solution. I have proposed a non-verbal language which can act as a reminder of resulting space experiences, when the physical prerequisites are formulated.

    This report is the result of a year-long study of how different persons react when exposed to different full-scale objects. Three of the gestalt laws were found to be valid not only when observing two-dimensional pictures but also when confronted with three-dimensional objects.

5) A skilled architect's way of searching för the best solution has been investigated together with Mikael Hedin in: Den sökande bilden: ”Fallet” Bo Cederlöf; (The Searching picture: ”the Case” Bo Cederlöf)1990 (ISBN 91-7032–596–0)

6) ”The searching picture ” (Paper presented at The International Conference on Theories and Methods of Design, 14–15 May 1992 at the School of Architecture, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden) is based on studies of a collection of sketches from various skilled architects. Ten hypotheses for the architect's way of seeking out best solution were presented.
