    Municipal responsibilities in strategic housing provision planning: to accommodate, support and facilitate2023In: Planning practice + research, ISSN 0269-7459, E-ISSN 1360-0583, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 236-252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish municipalities are obliged to formulate housing provision policies in housing programs, as part of municipal strategic planning. This article explores how municipalities interpret this responsibility. We analyze housing provision programs by drawing from prospective responsibility and policy analysis. Our analysis shows three different prospective responsibilities in the municipality’s production of housing provision responsibility. The results show that municipalities take actions by different means, leading to ambiguities and inequalities in housing provision planning. © 2022 The Author(s).

    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?

    Organizing cross-sectoral housing provision planning: settings, problems and knowledge2021In: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 29, no 5, p. 862-882Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the governance of housing provision, the public sector is considered unable efficiently to manage such problems through the traditional bureaucratic organizations and associated governing tools. Instead, municipalities are expected to engage in collaborative processes across sectors and with external stakeholders, with the overarching objective to deliver more efficient planning outcomes. As the processes are carried out across sectors, it opens up the opportunity to privilege certain sectors’ perspectives and marginalize others. By drawing from Mouffe's agonistic political theories, this article makes an empirical account of the political in organizing cross-sectoral collaborative planning in Swedish municipalities, with the empirical example of developing municipal programmes for housing provision. The article concludes that social service is severely marginalized in what is generally a depoliticized housing provision planning process. Underpinning the collaboration is the conceptualizing of housing provision as primarily a general deficit in constructing housing. Primarily organizing objectivist knowledge, housing provision is constructed as a technical and procedural matter rather than ideological and political. Through such organizing principles, the overarching housing provision problem remains undealt with, e.g. how do we provide housing to ‘all’ our citizens?

    A Healthy City for All? Social Services’ Roles in Collaborative Urban Development2022In: Urban Planning, E-ISSN 2183-7635, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 113-123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is broad consensus among policymakers about the urgency of developing healthy, inclusive, and socially sustainable cities. In the Swedish context, social services are considered to have knowledge that needs to be integrated into the broader urban development processes in order to accomplish such ends. This article aims to better understand the ways in which social service officials collaborate in urban development processes for developing the social dimensions of healthy cities. We draw from neo‐institutional theories, which set out actors (e.g., social service officials) as acting according to a logic of appropriateness, which means that actors do what they see as appropriate for themselves in a specific type of situation. Based on semi‐structured interviews with social services officials in 10 Swedish municipalities on their experiences of collaboration in the development of housing and living environments for people with psychiatric disabilities, we identified that they act based on (a) a pragmatic rule of conduct through the role of the problem solver, (b) a bureaucratic rule of conduct through the role of the knowledge provider, and (c) activist rule of conduct through the role of the advo-cator. In these roles, they have little authority in the development processes, and are unable to set the agenda for the social dimensions of healthy cities but act as the moral consciousness by looking out for everyone’s right to equal living conditions in urban development. © 2022 by the author(s); licensee Cogitatio (Lisbon, Portugal).

    Synergier mellan investeringar.: Åtta fallstudier.2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport är framtagen för att få en ökad förståelse för hur olika investeringar i Stockholmsregionen påverkar varandra och genom att för-stå det, på sikt få ett mer kraftfullt och samordnat genomförande. Frågor som ställs i studien är bland annat dessa: Vilka synergier finns det mellan olika investeringar och hur kan man utnyttja dem? Kan man stöd-ja privata investeringar genom offent-liga investeringar? Kan man påvisa att offentliga investeringar som gjorts har gett upphov till privata investe-ringar som annars inte skulle ha genomförts? Vad är det som påverkar om en investering ger följdeffekter eller inte?

    Fringe or Not Fringe? Strategies for Localizing Supported Accommodation in a Post‐Deinstitutional Era2021In: Social Inclusion, ISSN 2183-2803, E-ISSN 2183-2803, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 201-213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Finding suitable locations for supported accommodations is crucial both for the wellbeing of individuals with psychiatric disabilities (PD) and to achieve the objectives of the mental health care reform in order to create opportunities for social inclusion. This article explores municipal strategies for localizing supported accommodations for people with PD. In a multiple case study, interviews with 20 municipal civil servants from social services and urban planning were conducted. Three strategies were identified and further analyzed with a public location theory approach: (1) re‐use, i.e., using existing facilities for a new purpose, (2) fill‐in, i.e., infilling new purpose‐built facilities in existing neighborhoods, and (3) insert, i.e., inserting new premises or facilities as part of a new development. The article shows that the “re‐use” strategy was employed primarily for pragmatic reasons, but also because re‐using former care facilities was found to cause less con‐ flicts, as residents were supposedly used to neighbors with special needs. When the “fill‐in” and “insert” strategies were employed, new accommodations were more often located on the outskirts of neighborhoods. This was a way to balance potential conflicts between residents in ordinary housing and residents in supported accommodations, but also to meet alleged viewpoints of service users’ need for a quiet and secluded accommodation. Furthermore, ideas associated with social services’ view of social inclusion and urban planning’s notion of “tricky” tenants significantly influenced localization strategies. Finally, this article is also a call for more empirical research on the decision‐making processes, use of strategies (intended or not) and spatial outcomes, when localizing supported accommodation for people with PD and other groups in need of support and service.

    A Tour of the Palimpsest of House of Psychiatry, Uppsala2019In: Architecture in Effect: Volume 1: Rethinking the Social in Architecture: Making Effects and Volume 2: After Effects: Theories and Methodologies in Architectural Research. / [ed] Sten Gromark, Jennifer Mack, Roemer van Toorn, Helene Frichot, Gunnar Sandin, Barcelona: ACTAR, 2019, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Architecture in Effect is a substantial collection of essays emerging from the Swedish research environment of the same name. While it takes its point of departure from within the specific context that is Sweden, it includes contributions from authors based in the Nordic context, in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. A central premise of the collected research is that the built environment and societal norms are co-constitutive and that architecture as a discipline and as a professional practice plays a fundamental role in this relationship. 

    Contemporary political and environmental conditions place specific demands on society and on the everyday life of individuals. There persists, as such, an obligation for actors within the discipline of architecture to contribute to a rethinking of the situated knowledges within architecture by engaging in trans-, cross-, and inter-disciplinary studies. Architectural researchers have the capacity to guide and criticise thinking on architecture and its vital material relations amidst existing and emerging societies.

    Abstract [sv]

    BAKGRUND  Denna folder är framtagen inom det fyra-åriga tvärvetenskapliga forskningsprojektet LEX-projektet. Hållbara livsmiljöer för psykiskt funktionshindrade. Att integrera bostadsplanering och välfärdsservice genom nya kollaborativa praktiker. Projektet startade startade 2019 och finansieras med medel från de två statliga forskningsråden Formas och Forte. Vi som jobbar i LEX är forskare inom fysisk planering, byggd miljö och socialt arbete från fyra olika lärosäten i Sverige - Blekinge tekniska högskola, Högskolan Dalarna, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet SLU samt Umeå universitet. Till projektet hör även en referensgrupp med företrädare från Boverket, Socialstyrelsen, Sveriges Kommuner och Regioner (SKR) och Nationell Samverkan för Psykisk Hälsa (NSPH) samt forskare från Karolinska Institutet (KI) och Kungliga tekniska högskolan (KTH).

    En framtidsverkstad är en metod som syftar till att förändra genom att kartlägga och diskutera hur en situtation ser ut idag, vad problemet är med den, hur det skulle kunna vara på ett annat sätt, dvs vad krävs för att nå detta andra sätt samt hur ansvaret för att genomföra förändringen bör fördelas.

    Den här framtidsverkstadens bestod av en stadsvandring och en workshop med tjänstepersoner från olika förvaltningar från Umeå kommun  De bilder och citat som presenteras i denna folder hade vi med som inspel till den första dagens stadsvandring. Dessa är framarbetade genom metoden PhotoVoice tillsammans med tolv personer med egen erfarenhet av psykiskohälsa, psykiatri och socialtjänst i tre grupper från tre olika städer. Deltagarna förmedlade erfarenheter av sin livsmiljö genom att fotografera olika platser och berätta om dem. Under den andra dagen träffades framtidsverkstadens deltagare föratt genomföra en workshop kring problem och möjligheter kringboende och livsmiljö för personer med psykisk ohälsa. Även samverkansfrågoroch stödinsatser behandlas.

    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'.

    …Säger du trottoar en gång till…”: Att se staden som relationer istället för ting2018In: Samhällsbyggandet som mysterium.: Jane Jacobs idéer om människor, städer och ekonomier / [ed] Jesper Meijling och Tigran Haas, Lund: Nordic Academic Press, 2018Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Jane Jacobs blev känd över världen för sin bok The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Genom boken och sin aktivism på gatunivå i 1960-talets New York blev hon en centralfigur inom stadsplaneringsfrågor och hennes insatser har efter genombrottet ständigt tolkats och debatterats.

    Den tidiga berömmelsen verkar emellertid ha överskuggat hennes författarskap trots att det sträcker sig fram till 2004. Jacobs breddade sitt tänkande till att omfatta samhällsbyggandet i dess vidaste mening från ekonomi och ekologi till politik och samhällsfilosofi. Hennes böcker tvingar läsaren att reflektera och vidga sitt synfält. Jacobs är mer aktuell än någonsin i den ovissa värld vi möter idag.

    Samhällsbyggandet som mysterium tar tretton initierade skribenter upp unika aspekter av de brännande frågor hon väcker vad är det som i grunden gör ett samhälle hållbart? Tillsammans tecknar de medverkande för första gången på svenska en nära nog heltäckande bild av Jacobs verksamhet från 1930-tal till 2000-tal, och sätter in hennes arbeten i nutida kontexter. Boken utgör samtidigt en introduktion och guide till Jacobs författarskap som kan inspirera till vidare läsning och upptäckter.

    Abstract [en]

    Jane Jacobs (19162006) is an icon in urban planning and became known worldwide for her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. The book and her street-level activism in 1960s New York made Jacobs a central figure in urban planning issues, and her efforts have been constantly interpreted and debated. In this anthology, initiated writers address unique aspects of the burning issues she raises. What is it that basically makes a society sustainable? Together, the participants draw a close enough comprehensive picture of Jacob's business from the 1930s to the 2000s and put her work in a contemporary context.

    Translating spatial experiences to design recommendations: A mission impossible?2017In: Caring architecture: Institutions and relational practices / [ed] Catharina Nord & Ebba Högström, Cambridge: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter relocates to the mid-1970s in Sweden, to a newly opened outpatient clinic for mental healthcare. The clinic, Saltsjöbaden Mental Health Centre (SMHC), was one clinic out of three created in the pilot scheme The Nacka Project 1974-1979, an influential ‘actor’ in the decentralisation and de-institutionalisation of Swedish mental healthcare. The spatial organisation and design of SMHC was encompassing the dual aims of preventing people from becoming long-term psychiatric patients and fostering a culture of co-operation among staff. However, experiences of the architecture differed; it was embraced by many for its innovative and supportive design, whereas the design was criticised by others. Some years later, when SMHC was used as a precedent in guidelines for “the new psychiatry” by The Swedish Health and Social Care Institute for Planning and Rationalisation (SPRI 1985), most of its place-specific aspects relating to care ideology, work organisation and staff experiences were not brought to the fore. Why was this so? Why, in many ways, did these newer recommendations propose quite a different mental health centre to that programmed by the management of SMHC and experienced by staff and patients?

    The Challenges of Social Infrastructure for Urban Planning2022In: Urban Planning, E-ISSN 2183-7635, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 377-380Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This editorial addresses social infrastructure in relation to urban planning and localisation, drawing together the themes in this thematic issue on “Localizing Social Infrastructures: Welfare, Equity, and Community.” Having contextualised social infrastructure, we present each of the 12 contributions by theme: (a) the social consequences of the localisation of social infrastructure for individuals, (b) the preconditions for localising social infrastructure in the urban landscape, and (c) the social consequences for the long-term social sustainability of the wider community. We conclude with the openings for future research, such as the need to continue researching localisation (for example, the ways localisations of social infrastructure support, maintain, or hinder inclusion and community-building, and which benefits would come out of using localisation as a strategic planning tool); second, funding (the funding of non-commercial social infrastructure and who would take on the responsibility); and third, situated knowledge (the knowledge needed by planners, architects, social service officials, decision makers, and the like to address and safeguard the importance of social infrastructure in urban development and regeneration processes).

    Yielding and (Not) Breaking: Two Observations on the Walls of a Psychiatric Hospital2019In: Architecture and Culture, ISSN 2050-7828, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 45-49, article id Special Issue: SIArticle in journal (Refereed)
    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]

    Conducting a thorough organisational analysis is crucial for coming up with sustainable design interventions and architec- tural alteration. Architecture has the power to influence or constrain spatial practices. Therefore in order to be successful every proposal has to be based on knowledge about the organisation, their everyday activities and goals

    Abstract [en]

    In this report, we have presented the first part of two in the interdisciplinary research project LEX - sustainable Living Environments for people with psychiatric disabilities. Aligning housing planning and social services through eXperimental collaborative practices

    Our starting point was to find out more about what characterizes support measures aimed at people with mental disabilities and how these are organized, and to investigate cross-sectoral collaboration in terms of planning for housing and inclusive living environments. 

    Our material shows that the target group for housing and support initiatives has changed. People with disabilities due to long-term psychological disabilities still constitute a central group, often in need of interventions with a high level of service. However, the target group for the initiatives is changing and this has in some municipalities led to a development towards a more general organization for the support initiatives without specialist functions. Housing initiatives decided in accordance with SoL dominate, but a mixture of approaches can be seen, from individual exceptions where LSS is applied to a municipality where all decisions about housing with special services are made according to LSS. When it comes to the types of activities for support measures, traditional group housing and housing support dominate. Some believe that group housing as a type will eventually disappear, and among those responsible for operations, there is a consensus that the field is generally moving towards a direction to work towards increased independence and autonomy for the users within the operations. 

    The ways in which social services and community building administrations work together with issues that affect the target group differs between the municipalities. The work is sometimes organized in networks, sometimes it is about coordination, in some cases cooperation or collaboration. In some municipalities, there are forums for continuous joint work, in others it is not considered necessary at all. How meetings between the two administrations are organized, on whose initiative and responsibilities are handled in different ways. It is a complex picture that emerges where issues are raised in different instances and at different levels within the own administration as well as between the administrations. 

    When it comes to municipal housing provision responsibility, the work of developing the housing provision program is an important part. Officials from different administrations are involved in various ways in this work, from coordination and coordination to long-term strategic collaborations. Different types of roles are produced, such as initiators, information providers, experts or spokespersons with different areas of action. The social services' experience-based knowledge of the current situation for different groups is not always used. In the material, the issue appears to be politically sensitive and is presented as a broad goal of 'housing for all', but with limited concretization. 

    The municipal strategies for locating housing with special services are about converting existing premises, building new housing in already built-up housing areas and planning for new housing in urban development processes. The overall pattern for the location of housing is in the outskirts of  residential areas, a compromise between the social administration's ideas about social inclusion and the community building administrations' ideas about integrity. However, users' opportunities to acquire positive neighborly contacts may be hampered by such peripheral locations. 

    What an inclusive, ‘good’, living environment could be for people with mental disabilities turns out to be a new issue for our interviewed officials. Several informants from the social services have not previously thought about how housing and employment relate to each other geographically and in what way it affects experiences of the living environment. Considering inclusive living environments for our target group as part of the broader community planning was not obvious to the planners. It also emerged that it is more difficult for the municipality to make architectural demands to those who build housing with special services and other similar care housing than what it is to those who construct other public buildings such as city halls, libraries or swimming pools, something that is reflected in location and architectural quality.

    ‘Let there be light’ or life in the dark? Vital geographies of mental healthcare2023In: Social Science and Medicine, ISSN 0277-9536, E-ISSN 1873-5347, Vol. 333, article id 116137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the relations between light and dark/white and black disclosed in a study of Gartnavel Royal Hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, where an old Victorian lunatic asylum remains, if becoming ruined, on the same site as a modern mental healthcare campus. In-depth interview work recovering the ‘spatial stories’ of patients and staff, past and present, reveals a complex mixture of positive and negative memories and interpretations prompted by both the ‘darkened spaces’ of Old Gartnavel and the liveliness associated with both sets of spaces. These findings are framed by (a) a reading of Badiou's short monograph on Black (Badiou, 2017) and (b) an engagement with light and dark studies, both of which suggest a rebalancing of the normal valuations whereby dark/black is cast as the realm of death, everything that deadens and threatens life, whereas light/white is cast as that of life, liveliness and vitality. The scholarship here speaks to work on vitalist health geographies, agreeing that vital health-worlds can surface almost anywhere, but reminding that the fragility of such worlds can always be threatened by too much over-ordering. © 2023 The Authors

    Ontological Boundaries or Contextual Borders: The Urban Ethics of the Asylum2020In: Urban Planning, E-ISSN 2183-7635, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 106-120, article id 3554Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What and where is ‘the asylum’ today? To what extent do mental healthcare facilities stand out as clearly bounded entities in the modern urban landscape, perhaps reflecting their history as deliberately set-apart and then often stigmatised places? To what extent have they maybe become less obtrusive, more sunk into and interacting with their urban surroundings? What issues of urban ethics are at stake: concerning who/what is starkly demarcated in the city, perhaps subjected to exclusionary logics and pressures, or more sensitively integrated into the city, planned for inclusion and co-dwelling? These questions underscore our article, rooted in an in-depth case study of Gartnavel Royal Hospital, Glasgow, opened as a ‘lunatic asylum’ on its present, originally greenfield, site in the 1840s and remaining open today surrounded by dense urban expansion. Building from the ‘voices’ of patients, staff and others familiar with the site, we discuss the sense of this asylum as ‘other’ to, as ‘outside’ of, or merely ’beside’ the urban fabric. Drawing from concepts of ‘orientations’ (Ahmed, 2006), sites as spatial constructions (Burns & Kahn, 2005), the power of borders and boundaries (Haselsberger, 2014; Sennett, 2018), issues of site, stigma and related urban ethical matters will be foregrounded. Where are the boundaries that divide the hospital campus from the urban context? What are the material signifiers, the cultural associations or the emotional attachments that continue to set the boundaries? Or, in practice, do boundaries melt into messier, overlapping, intersecting border zones, textured by diverse, sometimes contradictory, bordering practices? And, if so, what are the implications?

    Contemporary Accommodation Services for People with Psychiatric Disabilities – the Simple Taxonomy for Supported Accommodation (STAX-SA) Applied and Discussed in a Swedish Context2023In: Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research, ISSN 1501-7419, E-ISSN 1745-3011, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 92-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the stock of accommodation service units for people withpsychiatric disabilities in Sweden and the classification of supported accommodation.We examined 122 units in 12 municipalities in Sweden and classified them accordingto the Simple Taxonomy for Supported Accommodation (STAX-SA). We found anobvious variation in the field and a movement into a recovery-oriented direction andtowards individuality. There is an emphasis on Move-On that seems to expand into andbeyond floating outreach support, and there is a relaxation of service units’ boundariesconcerning commitment and target groups. The correspondence to STAX-SA was quitelow (48%), and the applicability to ‘real world’ services was not satisfactory. Whencapturing variation and change in a rich dataset, STAX-SA is too reductive. However,STAX-SA was a successful point of departure in the analysis that opened up foridentifying diversities and movement. We suggest some adjustments to increase itsapplicability

    Mental health supported accommodation services in a post-deinstitutionalised era: Experiences from Swedish service providers2023In: Alter;European Journal of Disability Research ;Journal Europeen de Recherche Sur le Handicap, ISSN 1875-0672, E-ISSN 1875-0680, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 39-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The movement towards deinstitutionalisation of mental health services has created a space for new and community-based solutions in western countries, but the field still seems to lack coherent ideological and practical features. This is also evident for issues related to housing. The aim of this article is to examine the characteristics of supportive accommodation services for people with psychiatric disabilities in Sweden, according to the experiences of local service providers. The focus is placed on the services' organizational setting, main orientation, and conceptual content. This article is based on a multiple case study of ten Swedish municipalities, purposely selected regarding size, location, and demographic features. Data mainly consist of interviews with key informants in the social service organisation. The results indicate the emergence of a new generation of service users with complex needs, who challenge both the organisation and the content of the service offered. Group homes and mobile housing support appeared as pillars in the service supply, but several local and pragmatically oriented solutions were also identified, as well as ambitions to scale down the extent of institutional settings. The guiding idea present at most sites is a strive towards increased autonomy among service users.

    Caring Architecture: Institutions and Relational Practices2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    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.
