Abstract [en]

This essay examines two materials found on the walls of a British psychiatric hospital: shatter-proof glass and steel-reinforced concrete. Interested in their constitution through and of the institutional space, it explores these common building materials’ capacities to tolerate as well as to hold and contain. In doing so, the essay contemplates visually and textually where institutional space and practices begin and are bounded. The authors’ own voices enter in an epilogue, reflecting on their role in facilitating and testing the tolerance of institutional spaces. In doing so, they point towards architectural features in which these walls and their particular forms of boundaries between the inside and the outside of the psychiatric institution are constitutive of spaces of tolerance: they contain and regulate the users of the spaces (staff, patients, visitors as well as researchers). The tolerance articulates as selective yielding and holding. © 2019, © 2019 The Author(s). Published by Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a number of spatialisations of mental health care in Sweden, exemplifying these spatialities in three vignettes drawn from the Swedish post-asylum landscape. Working with the notion of a new urban frontier', I examine: (1) how these landscapes have been transformed by processes of decentralisation and austerity measures; (2) how this transformation plays out within and through physical space; and (3) the new spatial relations that are produced through such transformations. The idea of landscapes of care' and the concept of multiscalarity' are used to understand the changing spatialisations evident in mental health care, and the shift we are presently witnessing which replaces the tangible spaces of bricks and mortar' of the past with, rather, a diversity of settings, localisations and administrations. The empirical material that forms the basis of the analysis derives from a larger study of spatial discourses in Swedish mental health care, which I carried out between 2008 and 2011. The paper concludes with some thoughts on the kinds of spatial relations evident within the post-asylum landscape of formal mental health care in times of austerity and decentralisation, wherein I consider whether these spatialisations can be regarded as a new urban frontier of care'.

Abstract [sv]

Samhällsutmaningar påverkar hur, vad, när och varför vi ska planera, vilket medför nya förväntningar och krav på planerarens förmågor och färdigheter. Från att fokus i princip enkom har varit på reglering av mark genom framtagandet av markanvändningsplaner, utgör idag exempelvis ’facilitator’ (möjliggörare), samordnare, processledare, katalysator, urban designer och rumslig agent nya möjliga planerarroller. I den här artikeln diskuterar vi framtidens planerarroll och planeringsstudenternas föreställningar om sin kommande profession. Vad menar studenterna är fundamentala kunskaper som de måste förvärva för att kunna utöva sitt yrke? Hur uppfattar de planerarrollen? Och, vad är det för planerare som vi de facto utbildar?

Abstract [en]

Societal challenges affect the ways in which planning is carried out and contribute to new expectations and demands for the skills and abilities of the planner. From having almost solely focused on the regulations of land use through the development of land use plans, have, for example, the facilitator, coordinator, process manager, catalyst, urban designer and spatial agent become new possible roles for the planner to adopt. This article discusses future planning roles and what conceptions spatial planning students have of their future profession. What fundamental knowledge do students need to achieve for their future professional practice? How do they perceive the role of the planner? And, what kind of planner do we, de facto, educate?

Abstract [en]

Architecture is hard stuff. It is formed by walls, roofs, floors, all components of hard materials, stone, glass and wood. It distributes people in space and directs their doings and movements. Institutions are even harder stuff. Order is pushed a step further by the coerciveness of discursive architectural models and caring practices, restricting options to certain ways of thinking and acting. This book sets out to illuminate how people and spaces negotiate, and often challenge, regularities and patterns embedded in the meeting between architecture and institutions. It contains a number of essays by authors from disciplines such as human geography, architecture, planning, design, social work and education. The essays discuss different examples from institutions in which care is carried out; assisted living facilities, residential care for children, psychiatric care facilities and hospitals. By adopting a non-representational perspective, emergent practices render visible capacities of being flexible and mouldable, in which institutional architecture is defied, contested and transformed. New situations appear which transgress physical space in partnership with those who populate it, whether humans or non-humans. This book reveals the relational and transformative conditions of care architecture and the way in which institutions transform (or not) into Caring Architecture.
