This project is about Jönsaplan in Landskrona. Jönsaplan is situated at the center of Landskrona in a part called Södra centrum which the municipality is developing, mainly by building new residential buildings. Today, Jönsaplan is not a functioning square. This is due to a ferry terminal and its many fences that block the way for people. In this project, I have assumed that the ferry terminal will be moved somewhere else so that Jönsaplan can be a real square. By studying The Concise Townscape by Gordon Cullen and Byens uttrykksformer by Thomas Thiis - Evensen and three reference places, Daniaparken, Raoul Wallenbergs torg and Norr Mälarstrand, I came up with a number of guidelines for my design proposal for Jönsaplan. These two books complement each other in a good way. Thomas Thiis - Evensen is a bit more systematic in his description of the city than Gordon Cullen which I think writes more freely and does not use terms to the same extent. I also performed an analysis according to Kevin Lynch's method. Three reference places were chosen. These places are except for their closeness to the sea quite different. Daniaparken is a contemporary park with elements of square characteristics. Raoul Wallenbergs torg is a place which is both square and a place with heavy traffic. Norr Mälarstrand is a centrally situated park with nature character. With help from my guidelines, which I have developed, I designed a square which I gave the name Östra torget. This is the name the square had from the beginning. The proposal means that Östra torgets nearness to the sea and its contact with the surrounding areas is reinforced. The square contains among other things a round place, a residential building, a café and a guest harbour.
