In the centre of Bromma, east of Brommaplan is the part of Bromma named Riksby. Riksby was built in the early 1940:s as a part of the westward expansion of Stockholm. Other places that were built at the same time was for ex. Stora Mossen and Abrahamsberg. This work is about the outdoor environment of the housing co-operative of Brickbandet. The outdoor environment of Brickbandet was designed by the landscape architect Ulla Bodorff in the functionalistic style, influenced by natural romanticism as was common at the time. The original plan-drawings for the location of the plants are still extant, which is very valuable, since that makes it possible to recognize what parts are still there. Some changes has occurred within Brickbandet, but they are relatively small considering that they are more than 60 years old. The biggest changes are made in the streets, where parking lots were built in the 1960:ies. The yards are relatively untouched. The relatively small changes in the inner yards combined with the fact that the dwellers likes their outdoor environment hints about good qualities in the concept of the original design. Today the yards are partially neglected and the reason for this is probably insufficient resources for their maintenance. This work is a plan for future maintenance of the outdoor environments of Brickbandet. It includes a description of Brickbandets present values and a discussion for future goals of the maintenance. To describe and define the existing values and to define goals for future maintenance is vital for making relevant suggests of maintenance and for the motivation and understanding of the suggests. The plan for maintenance includes steps for suggests whose main purpose is a careful restoration of the outdoor environment of Brickbandet. The suggests are based on Brickbandets existing values, but the plan also allows changes to be made, that takes steps away from the original design. However, every time similar changes are made, they must be well motivated and be made in the spirit of the original concept of design of the place.
